In the event of an active shooter incident on campus,
the Humble ISD Police Department recommends the following actions be taken:

Secure immediate area:
  • Lock and barricade doors
  • Turn off lights
  • Close blinds
  • Block windows
  • Turn off radios and computer monitors
  • Keep occupants calm, quiet, and out of sight
  • Keep yourself out of sight and take adequate cover/protection i.e. concrete walls, thick desks, filing cabinets (cover may protect you from bullets)
  • Silence cell phones
  • Place signs in exterior windows to identify the location of injured persons


Un-Securing an area:
  • Consider risks before un-securing rooms
  • Remember, a shooter will not stop until engaged by an outside force
  • Remember that attempts to rescue people should only be made if they can be accomplished without further endangering the persons inside a secured area.
