Emergency Plan In the Event of Active Shooting or Hostage Incidents on the John Jay Campus
If there is a report of a shooting in the building you have three options:

Public Safety at x8888 if using a college phone, or call (212) 237-8888
from an outside phone.
- Run to a safe location if it is advisable to do so.
- Hide in a room and lock the door. Shut off the interior lights and silence your cell phones. Only exit when the police advise you to do so.
- Fight the active shooter as a last resort. Use anything available to fight the shooter from fire
extinguishers to chairs.

- Exit the building with your hands up in the air and your fingers spread.
- If you are injured notify the first responders immediately.
