Active Shooter Response

Learn what to do in a shooting event

While many members of the UW-Green Bay campus community have attended one of Public Safety’s active shooter presentations, this is training that needs to be reviewed often so that it becomes second nature. So please, even if you have recently attended active shooter response training, take a few moments to review the information below and watch the Run, Hide, Fight video. This information just may save your life one day.      


  • Have an escape plan
  • Evacuate
  • Leave your belongings
  • Help others if possible
  • Do not move wounded people


  • Be out of shooter's view
  • Lock doors, block them with furniture
  • Keep your options for movement
  • Silence phone
  • Be quiet


Only as a last resort.
Be prepared!
  • Act aggressively
  • Incapacitate the active shooter
  • Throw objects
  • Yell and call for help

Call 9-911

  • When you are safe, call 9-911 from a campus phone or 911
  • Give information to the operator

When police arrive
