RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. METHOD
Saint Augustine’s University Department of Police and Public Safety takes the safety and security of our campus community very seriously. As part of our continuous efforts to educate the campus community on crime prevention and emergency preparedness, we encourage you to review the “Run. Hide. Fight.” video.
The ‘Run. Hide. Fight.’ Model is considered a best practice in crisis response, particularly in the event of an active shooter situation. Many organizations, including Saint Augustine’s University, subscribe to this model in response to any immediate threat.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the ‘Run. Hide, Fight.’ model.
- Have an escape route in mind
- Evacuate and leave your belongings behind
- Help others escape, if possible
- Do not attempt to move the wounded
- Prevent others from entering an area where there is an active shooter
- Call 919.516.4911 or 911
- Hide in an area out of the shooter’s view
- Lock door or block entry to your hiding place
- Silence your cell phone (including vibrate mode) and remain quiet
- Fight as a last resort and only when your life is in imminent danger
- Attempt to incapacitate the shooter
- Act with as much physical aggression as possible
- Improvise weapons or throw items at the active shooter
- Commit to your actions, your life depends on it
