Situation Description

All school and office personnel must be prepared to carry out plans in the event of gunfire or what is called an active shooter in the school or on school grounds.

In the unfortunate event that gunfire erupts within a school or on school property, the term Active Shooter should be used when notifying the Metropolitan Police Department (911). This allows for appropriate allocation of police resources.
