Shelter in Place

The term “shelter in place” is used to refer to situations where it is safest to remain indoors, rather than face uncertainty outside. Depending on the emergency, appropriate places to shelter may vary. When sheltering, seek safety by placing barriers between you and the danger. This could include walls, rooms without windows, locked doors, furniture, etc.


  • Find a safe location
  • Shut all doors and windows
  • Stay away from areas exposed to the threat
  • Enact barriers between you and the threat
  • Await further information from Emergency responders

Additional information specific to the threat will be provided via Loyno Alert Notifications and our Emergency Communications system.
