Would you know what to do if there is an active shooter in your vicinity?
Over the past several years in the United States, there have been a number of incidents of violence in public venues, in workplaces, and in schools, including universities.
It is unwise to think "it can't happen here".
Be aware of your surroundings and learn what to do in an emergency situation. We must prepare ourselves in the event we have an Active Shooter or other significant threat to life on our campus. If we should have an Active Shooter on our campus your chances of survival increase dramatically if you know what to do.
We will make every effort to verbally warn you of threats through the campus-wide fire alarm network and our SAFE Alerts program. Unfortunately these warnings sometimes cannot be made until after the act of violence has started.
