While it is still very unlikely that a shooting would happen on campus, it’s good to know how to be prepared just in case. In most school shooting cases, and most recently the attacker at Ohio State last week, news reports suggest to students that the best practice is to Run, Hide, and Fight.
Chief of Police of the Shippensburg Bureau, Chief Scott, says that although he agrees with Run Hide and Fight; he emphasizes to student that the best thing to do is just run.
“First thing to do is run…because I’m running” Cheif Scott says. “If I don’t have a gun I’m running. You’re a fool if you don’t just run and hide and do the best you can.”
Hiding and fighting should be saved as a last resort. For more information on how to handle a dangerous situation on campus, students can visit this website:
