(Ominous music, muffled voices) Sir, hey sir. (Gunfire sounds and screaming) What is it? What is it?Let’s go Hey, call 911, call 911 If you see or hear any shots on campus, make sure to get away as fast as possible. Leave your belongings because they’re not as important as your life. When you’re in a safe location make
sure no other students go towards the danger and call 911 immediately.
if you’re on campus call FSU PD and alert them of the details of the shooter and his whereabouts. I’m on the southwest corner of Azalea Hall and I just heard a gun shot. Ok, stay calm, are you safe? How many people are hurt? Headquarters, all units, I have a report of an active shooter situation Azalea Hall, multiple victims, I’m still on 911. Go, let’s go! Go! (Running and police sirens) (Screaming, gun shot) Girls, girls, come on (Fire alarm activated) Oh my god, come on it’s a fire alarm! Run, run. (Multiple gun shots) It’s not a fire alarm! Sometimes shooters use fire alarms to
flush out the building, so always be alert. If you hear gunfire, hide. If you
can’t escape protect yourself Come on, put this in front of the door (dramatic music) (Fire alarm) (Police sirens) “97-97” got a window open on the fifth
floor. Team swarm up let’s go When responding to calls the shooter is our focus so we can eliminate the threat. Remember to remain calm and follow our
directions. Help is on the way for the injured. Come on, come on, this way (Multiple, quick gunshots) Fighting should always be your
last option, but if you have to fight, fight for your life. The goal should
never be to take out the shooter, but to distract them and separate them from
their gun. Grab anything that you can use as a weapon and keep them neutralized
until police arrive. (multiple gun shots) (silence) Active shooter scenarios are rare and
hopefully you’ll never find yourself in one of these situations. But if you do,
remember these principles of Run, Hide, Fight. Your life may depend on it Don’t let strangers into buildings who
are not supposed to be there. If you see something that looks suspicious please
