Safety During a Violent Incident
- Leave the home if possible. If you need to leave your children behind, contact the police immediately.
- If you cannot leave, try to move to a room that is "low risk”. (Avoid the bathroom, garage, kitchen or rooms with weapons). Preferably, get to a room with a lock, a phone and easy access to outside.
- Call the Police, (911) have your children call or scream to alert a neighbor to call.
- If you are able to leave by car, lock your doors immediately and keep them locked until you have arrived at a safe place.
