If you hear anything that sounds like a gunshot:

  • Turn off the lights and close the blinds.
  • Lock or barricade the door.
  • Hide where you cannot be seen. Do not huddle together.
  • Call the Department of Public Safety at 7-3000 if using a campus phone, or (314) 977-3000 if using a cell phone.
  • Wait for help to arrive.
  • If you are on the ground floor and can exit the building safely and quickly, do so.
