What to do if a gunman arrives on campus

 Permanent link

In the wake of such tragedies as the shootings at Virginia Tech University and Northern Illinois University, GSU will host screenings of an informative video that illustrates what to do when a gunman begins shooting at work or school.

The video being shown is called “Run, Hide, Fight: Surviving an Active Shooter Event.” The video runs about 25 minutes and illustrates methods and techniques for surviving such an incident. GSU will have three screenings in Engbretson Hall:
1. April 22, 9:30 a.m.—11 a.m.
2. April 23, 9:30 a.m.—11a.m.
3. April 24, 4:30 p.m.—6 p.m.

The event will be hosted by the GSU Department of Public Safety and the Emergency Response Team. Chief James McGee will speak briefly before and after the video about the measures the department has in place to prevent such an incident. He will also take questions afterward.
The screenings are open to all students, faculty and staff. All are strongly encouraged to attend one of the screenings. For more information, contact the Department of Public Safety at 708.534.4900.
