Tip of the Week:

Run, Hide, Fight…Do you know what it means?

As police responded to the attack at Ohio State University earlier this week, school officials broadcast an ominous message to students with a set of instructions: “Run Hide Fight.”  Many news agencies reporting on the attack began asking questions about what that means and what are people receiving the message supposed to do.

Run, Hide, Fight, is a national campaign that Gustavus uses in providing notification during an active threat situation on campus.  Basically the run part is that your first option is to get away, get as far away from the threat as you can. Second, if you can’t, then you hide. You barricade yourself wherever you are. You often see the words shelter in place, when it comes to the hide element. You shelter in place to try and keep yourself away from that threat. The last is if you just have no other option, that you can use your mental and physical capacities to defend yourself.  That as a last resort to save your life, there may be a need to fight.
