HVPD Supports "Run, Hide, Fight" Campaign
The Run, Hide, Fight - Surviving the Active Shooter Event” video is a
Department of Homeland Security Funded Project. Its purpose is to
educate the public on how to respond during an active shooter event and
dramatizes a workplace incident. The 6 minute video encourages citizens
to evaluate the situation and:
RUN - if a safe path is available. Always try and escape or evacuate even if others insist on staying. Encourage others to leave with you but don’t let the indecision of others slow down your own effort to escape. Once you are out of the line of fire, try to prevent others from walking into the danger zone and call 9-1-1.
HIDE - If you can’t get out safely, find a place to hide. When hiding, turn out lights, remember to lock doors and silence your ringer and vibration mode on your cell phone.
FIGHT - As a last resort, working together or alone, act with aggression, use improvised weapons and fight.
When law enforcement arrives, remain calm and follow instructions. Keep your hands visible at all times. Avoid pointing or yelling. Know that help for the injured is on its way.
If you See Something, Say Something - Call 911 and Remember RUN, HIDE, FIGHT!
