Shooting incident

Call 911. The caller should be prepared to provide a location and remain in contact with the dispatcher. If possible, ask if Augustana Security should be contacted to provide assistance. After the call is made, the following should happen:

• Seek safe shelter.

• Once reported, e2Campus texts, email and homepage website messages will be used to direct the campus community to safe places.

• Prior to those directions, community members should go inside the nearest building away from the shooter, find the nearest room, lock the door, turn off the lights, close the windows and kneel out of sight. Alert everyone to remain in a safe place until help arrives.

• If a secure location is unavailable, do what is necessary to protect yourselves and others.
