Despite the best attempts to stay vigilant, active shooter incidents regrettably occur at public locations with increasing frequency. While you're statistically more likely to be struck by lightning than to encounter an active shooter situation, it is always best to be prepared.

The Wayne State University Police Department prides itself on its ability to respond quickly to on-campus emergencies. However, we all have a role to play in our personal and collective safety, and there are things that you can do during these life-threatening situations to improve your survival chances before police arrive.

The WSUPD's "Emergency Preparedness — Active Attackers" training program is an opportunity to learn actions that will help you remain safe in the event of an active shooter.  Updated with the latest information — including  the "Run! Hide! Fight" technique for active shooter situations — this program incorporates expert information, emergency-preparedness videos, and question-and-answer sessions with WSUPD officers. The training also covers an often overlooked but critically important topic — what to do in those first chaotic minutes after law enforcement arrives at the scene.
