How to Prepare for an Active Shooter Event (TD2100)

Tue, 27 Aug 2024 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Description: The most important factor in managing any crisis is first and foremost how we think and prepare. In the event of an active shooter on campus, we can expect a police response within four or five minutes from receipt of a 911 call. It’s important that we all learn about preventing these types of incidents and actions we can take to reduce loss of life in the few minutes it takes for first responders to arrive. Participants in this workshop will explore aspects of personal responsibility in preparing and taking action to further our individual and collective safety. 

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn strategies for preventing violence
  • Identify opportunities to minimize injury and loss of life
  • Explore ways to take appropriate action and avoid freezing
  • Learn about areas of accountability for faculty and staff in keeping our campus safe

Type of Information: Primarily receiving data
Level of Interaction: Limited Sharing
Extent of Practice: Little to no practice

Facilitated by: Anthony Matos, Deputy Chief of Operations, JMU Public Safety
