  • LOCK two remaining exterior exit doors (master key from office required).
  • TURN OFF lights.
  • CLOSE all blinds.
  • HIDE in a room or closet & lock the door behind you.
  • MUTE electronic devices so they won’t ring.

  • DO NOT UNLOCK DOOR for anybody, even if they say they are the police.
