Aug 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Active Shooter and Emergency Response Training
Facilitator: Lt. Dan Munford, Michigan State University Police Department

In response to incidents of violence on campuses nationally, the MSU Police Department offers a workshop focused on proactive and reactive strategies in the event of an emergency at MSU.

Because active shooter and emergency incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly, it is imperative that faculty and academic staff are prepared should an incident occur during class instruction. This workshop gives direction on how to react in such a situation, for the benefit of students, teaching assistants and faculty alike.
