What guidelines or lock down procedures should a church follow when there's a threat of violence?

Does anyone have a "lock down" procedure in place for their church to use in case of a threat of violence? We do not have an intercom system but we do have a Bell/Buzzer that is audible throughout the building and located inside the office we plan to use as both a warning signal and an all clear signal depending on the number and length of rings. During our weekday programs there is always someone in the office who could signal the lock down, but what do you do on Sunday morning when all the adults are in the sanctuary?
