RMC Campus Security - Active threats

What is an Active Threat?

​An “active threat/shooter” is an individual(s) who engage in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.​

  • Victims are selected at random​
  • Event is unpredictable and evolves quickly​
  • Knowing what to do can save lives​​

 What Can you do?​

​If an active shooter is in your vicinity you have to be physically and mentally prepared to deal with the evolving situation.  You have three options:​

  • Run​
  • Hide ​
  • Fight
