Internal Threat Lockdown


An internal threat lockdown will be initiated when there is a violent or dangerous situation that poses an immediate serious threat to individuals on campus.

Immediate actions
  • Outside/entrance doors will not be locked to allow access to emergency responders.
  • Lock and barricade doors in your immediate area.
  • If your room cannot be locked, determine if there is a nearby location that can be reached safely and then secured.
  • Turn off lights.
  • Close interior blinds.
  • Turn off radios and computer monitors.
  • Take cover; hide behind concrete walls, heavy furniture, or filing cabinets.
  • Place cell phone in silent mode; vibrate mode can still cause loud sounds. Do not turn off phone.
Unsecuring an area
  • Consider risks before unsecuring rooms.
  • If doubt exists, the area should remain secured.
If outside the building when lockdown is initiated
  • Leave the area, and go to a safe place.
  • Await further directions from law enforcement personnel or the University.
