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
