Gunman Threat

To preserve life and protect students, faculty and staff, immediate action is necessary in the event of a gunman on campus. Safety is a priority.

  • If you hear gunshots or see an armed person:
    • Hide yourself and others from the suspect as completely as possible.
    • Call 911 (dial 9-911 from campus phone). Provide as much detail as possible. Do not leave your hiding place until you have been notified that it is safe to do so.
    • Contact Geneva Security by campus phone at ext. 5678 (724-847-5678 from off-campus) or the security cell phone at 724-846-9632. Provide as much detail as possible.
    • If possible, notify others on campus of what you know (do not speculate).
  • If confronted by an armed person:
    • Remain as calm as possible. Be cooperative and patient.
    • Try to pacify and calm the person down. Offer to listen. Don't judge or argue. Remain non-threatening.
    • Maintain polite eye contact. Keep gestures and body language open and non-threatening. Use a low, soft voice when you speak.
    • Be truthful.
    • Ask the person to suggest a solution of what others can do to help.
    • Always look for win-win outcomes.
    • Be observant.
