Active Shooter/Hostage Situation

  • Ensure your own safety.
  • If you know where the intruder (or source of the security threat) is, contact Campus Security (x7-7777 or 212-217-7777) immediately.
  • Move to the nearest location that can be secured by a locked door.
  • If a locked door is not available, move as far away from the threat as is safely possible. Isolate yourself and restrict entry any way that is possible.
  • Remain quiet and do nothing to call attention to yourself.
  • Allow others you know and trust into your secure location.
  • Follow directions from New York City Police Department.
