Presented by the Office of Emergency Management, the ‘Canes Emergency Response Team will host Active Shooter Response Training (ASRT) from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16 in the Senate Room on the third floor of the Shalala Student Center. The hour-long presentation will incorporate the latest Department of Homeland Security guidance on best practice responses for those who encounter active shooter situations. As an extra incentive, attendees who are enrolled in the Well ‘Canes program will receive 150 points.
The class covers awareness, avoidance, and appropriate actions. Expert instructors will discuss how to respond, what to look for, and how to prepare to survive dangerous situations, such as an active shooter event. They will also discuss both law enforcement’s and the University’s response to various potentially dangerous situations. Topics include the Emergency Notification Network (ENN) Alerts, interacting with first responders, personal preparedness, and other initiatives of the University designed to keep our students, staff, and faculty as safe as possible.
To receive Well ‘Canes points, attendees must sign a Well ‘Canes attendance roster with their C number at the end of the class. Attendance is limited to the first 65 people who sign up for the class on ULearn. Participants can feel free to bring their own lunch.
