Hold and secure is a measure designed to protect people from physical danger and keep people on campus out of harm’s way. 

The measure can be deployed in an emergency situation that happens off-campus and doesn’t directly target Université Laval, but could move to campus (active shooter or armed individual near the campus, violent protect moving toward the campus, etc.). Everyone on campus must stay safe inside a building until the situation outside is under control and the danger has passed.
