What is Run Hide Fight?

Run Hide Fight is a safety protocol recognized by law enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security. The Ozark School District chose to implement the Run Hide Fight method because it shows students and staff they have options in threatening situations. The District believes that knowing your options — run, hide or fight — increases your chance of survival.
