< Emergency Preparedness
A sniper is a marksman/gunman who shoots outside targets from concealed positions or long distances. In the event of a sniper on campus, follow these guidelines:
- If you are outside and hear gun shots, immediately seek shelter inside the closest building or room.
- Stay clear of all windows and doors.
- Immediately notify the Otterbein University Police Department at (614) 823-1222 or call 911. Provide as much information as possible and, if safe to do so, remain on the line.
- Do not leave your cover to assist the wounded.
- Wait for the Otterbein University Police Department or law enforcement to escort you out.
