Active Shooter Awareness

High schools, universities, shopping malls, houses of worship, night clubs and concerts are just a few places where mass shootings have occurred. It’s easy to think that an active shooting situation wouldn’t happen here at WSU, at least we hope not, but that may be a little short-sided and so we find ourselves needing to think seriously and soberly about this issue. When it comes to an active shooter situation the important thing is to know beforehand what you would do in the event it happened here on campus, in your classroom or workplace. The links below outline actions you should take in the event of an active shooter. They are common-sense steps to maximize your safety as well as the safety of others.
