1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
PNW Public Safety will hold an Active Shooter Lockdown Drill to offer faculty, staff and students the opportunity to plan and practice their response. During our drill and for drill purposes only, we will lock down/hide only.
As we get closer to the dates we will announce which buildings and at what times we are holding the drills.Being mindful of the interruption to instructional time, the entire drill, from start to finish, will be eight minutes
Run, Hide, Fight
This five-minute training video highlights how to respond to an active shooter using our core concepts of “Run, Hide, Fight.”
RUN – if the shooter is not in your building or vicinity you need to take a quick look and escape through the nearest exit. Once you exit the building run as far away from campus as you can. Do not come back until the PNW Police Department issues an “all clear”.
HIDE – if the shooter is in your area, you need to lock down and hide. Offices and instructional areas have locks on the doors. Lock the door and get low to the ground and away from windows. Turn off the lights and silence your cell phone.
FIGHT – if you are confronted by the active shooter you need to use an improvised weapon to stop the active shooter or distract and escape
