University Police Active Shooter Safety: Run. Hide. Fight.


The following video was funded by the Department of Homeland Security. It depicts a dramatization of an active shooter scenario at the workplace as experts offer informative commentary in reference to survival techniques. This six-minute training video was produced with a federal grant by the city of Houston, which received $3.6 million in total funding to research and produce a series of training videos.

This video promotes a simple, three-step plan to escape danger:

    Run. Try to escape if possible, even if others insist on staying behind.

    Hide. If you can not escape, conceal yourself. Lock doors, turn off lights and silence your
    cell phone.

    Fight. As a last resort, prepare to battle or throw off the attacker by using whatever can
    be used as a weapon.
