One of the instructions you may be given in an emergency is to shelter-in-place. This means you should stay indoors until authorities tell you it is safe or you are told to evacuate.

In case of an active shooter event:

1. Stay inside or get indoors and stay in that location until Campus Safety or Claremont Police Department informs you that it is safe to exit your location.

2. Lock all entrances to your location if possible.

3. If you are unable to lock entrances, barricade all entrances with furniture, desks, or anything available.

4. Close blinds and turn off the lights.

5. Stay low to the ground and hide if possible until the situation has ended. 

In case of a biological event:

1. Select a small, interior room, with no or few windows.

2. Close and lock all windows and exterior doors.

3. Turn off all fans, heating and air conditioning systems. Close the fireplace damper.

4. Bring your family disaster supply kit and make sure the radio is working.

5. It is ideal to have a hard-wired telephone in the room you select (cellular telephone equipment may be overwhelmed or damaged during an emergency)

6. Use duct tape and plastic sheeting (heavier than food wrap) to seal all cracks around the door and any vents into the room.

7. Listen to your radio or television for further instructions or updates.

8. If you are in your car, close windows and turn off vents and air conditioning.
