GA Voice - - Remembering The Orlando 49 -

1. EVAC­U­ATE

• Have an es­cape route and plan in mind

• Leave your be­long­ings be­hind

• Keep your hands vis­i­ble

2. HIDE OUT

• Hide in an area out of the shooter’s view

• Block en­try to your hid­ing place and lock the doors

• Si­lence your cell phone and/ or pager

3. TAKE AC­TION

• As a last re­sort and only when your life is in im­mi­nent dan­ger

• At­tempt to in­ca­pac­i­tate the shooter

• Act with phys­i­cal ag­gres­sion and throw items at the ac­tive shooter
