What is Lockdown and Shelter in Place?
A lockdown and shelter in place is called when conditions call for securing yourself in a safe place and waiting until a uniformed authority says that it is safe to end.
Briefly, a lockdown and shelter in place is when you:
- Move into a sheltered place as safe as possible (a room, an office, an enclosed space, preferably with a door that can be locked.)
- Lock yourself in. If the door does not lock, barricade doors with furniture
- Move away from all doors and windows and shelter yourself with furniture
- Mute cell phones and turn off lights
- In silence, wait for an all-clear
For the Active Shooter Drill, the New Bedford Police will manage that drill and provide the information needed.
Thanks for your continuing cooperation. Please contact Steve Ozug at ext. 2150 if you have questions or comments.
