At WSU, the safety of our Coug community is a top priority.
That’s why we want everyone – students, faculty and staff – to be familiar with basic steps to follow in the unlikely event of an active-shooter situation.
Remember this phrase: “Run, Hide, Fight.”
- If you can escape, do it
- If you’re in an office or there’s one nearby, get in and secure the door
- Only as a last resort, fight
And always, your best preparation is simply to be aware of your environment.
