Active Shooter Procedure – HIDE

If you don’t believe you can safely evacuate, or this may not be the best option, then you may need to consider sheltering in place (providing there is a suitable option available).

  • Avoid congregating in open areas, such as corridors and foyers.
  • Consider locking / barricading yourself and others in a room or secure areas.
  • Secure your immediate environment and other vulnerable areas.
  • Move away from the door, remain quiet and stay there until told otherwise by appropriate authorities, or you need to move for safety reasons.
  • Silence / mute mobile phones and other devices that may identify your presence.
  • Try to contact police (000) or others to advise of your location/situation.
  • Choose a location which may enable access to a more secure area.
  • Close blinds/curtains if available.
