RUN, HIDE, FIGHT

Crisis Planning and Preparedness: Run, Hide, Fight

While violent intruders in schools are extremely rare, Wichita Public Schools is implementing new training for staff about what to do if a violent intruder enters their school. The Run, Hide, Fight Intruder Response plan is being taught to teachers and staff with the support of the Safety Services Department.

Run, Hide, Fight is an intruder response plan where staff and students assess the situation and respond on which option is best. As the name implies, if a violent intruder comes into a school, the response could be to run to a safe place, or hide in a locked area, or attempt to stop the intruder as a last resort with items found in the school.

Run, Hide, Fight is supported by Kansas Safe and Prepared Schools, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
