Violent Incidents

Violent incidents, including but not limited to:

  • Acts of terrorism
  • Active shooter
  • Assaults or other incidents of violence

All can occur on campus with little or no warning. Carilion Police and local law enforcement have adopted response procedures to contain a threat as quickly as possible.

Try to remain calm and lock or barricade yourself in a safe place and if safe to do so allow others to seek refuge with you.

Silence cell phones, radios and other noise producing equipment. Close and block windows and doors.

When safe to do so, calmly and quietly call 911.

Follow instructions from emergency response personnel.
