ISU Public Safety

Active Shooter On Campus

GUNThe Idaho State University Public Safety Department would like to remind the campus community that active shooter events are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Individuals who survive an active shooter event generally have a "survival mentality." Here are some tips to help you develop survival skills:




Faculty and staff must be cognizant that students are likely to follow their lead in an active shooter event.


The purpose of ALICE is to prepare individuals to handle the threat of an Active Shooter. ISU now subscribes to ALICE Training. Learn more at

To make it easy to remember in a stressfull situation, ALICE is broken up into five strategies: Alert; Lockdown; Inform; Counter and Evacuate

Training Opportunities

Public Safety is available to provide active shooter survival training to individual departments and divisions. Ideally, this can be accomplished in a 15-20 minute presentation during regularly scheduled department and division meetings. After the presentation, a walk-through can be conducted of specific offices and classrooms to discuss escape routes and barricade options. Please give us a call at 282-2515 to schedule a presentation.
