Active Shooter Presentation

Location: UCB, room 100

There will be an Active Shooter Presentation on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm in UCB 100.


In this presentation, attendees will learn the concept of Run, Hide, Fight for Active Shooter response. No one can tell us how we can ensure our safety in these situations; however, there is no doubt that training and preparation will help us to have a better response, that would lead to better chances of survival.

This presentation is designed to ensure that attendees are better prepared to respond to an Active Shooter situation if we are ever confronted with that unfortunate circumstance. This presentation will also assist us as we prepare for the campus-wide, Active Shooter Exercise that will be conducted at UH Hilo on Friday, February 22.

This presentation is designed and built on strategies developed by the Department of Homeland Security, and incorporates their guidance and proven plan for surviving an active shooter event.

Presentation topics include:

1. History and prevalence of active shooter events
2. Facts to consider
3. Response options
4. Medical and Disability issues
5. What to expect from law enforcement and first responder agencies.
6. Responses particular to individual situations

Attending this presentation will help you to understand how to respond and to better protect yourself during an Active Shooter event.
