The Following Guidelines are intended to reduce your personal risk in the unlikely event that an Active Shooter incident should occur on Campus.
Monitor alerts from the Limestone Emergency Notification System.
(i.e. concrete walls, filing cabinets, heavy desks or anything that would protect you from bullets)
What to report and what to do when law enforcement arrives…
Call 911. Have one person in your area designated to report the incident. The 911 systems could be overwhelmed with calls, but keep trying.
Call Campus Safety at (864) 488-8344. Give specific location building name and room number. Give the number of people at your specific location, and the number of injured, if known.
Provide suspect info i.e. location, the number of suspects, race, gender, clothing description, physical features, type of weapon (long gun/handgun), and location of the last shots heard.
Officers might be in police uniform or tactical gear. They might be armed with rifles, shotguns, or handguns. They might use pepper spray or tear gas to control the situation.
Officers might shout commands and push people to the ground. Remain calm and follow the officer’s instructions. Keep hands open and visible at all times.
The first officers to respond will not stop to help the injured but will continue to find the shooter. Additional rescue teams will treat and remove injured persons.
Do not leave your secure area until an all-clear is given through the Limestone Emergency Alert System.
