Active Attacker Prevention and Response Training, April 11

Active Attacker Prevention and Response Training
Tuesday, April 11, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Newcomb Hall South Mtg. Rm.

Since 2020, the Department of Safety & Security has conducted multiple Active Attacker Prevention, Response, and Notification trainings for over a thousand members of the University community. Although incidents of active attackers at universities and medical centers are statistically rare, the impact on the individuals and communities affected cannot be overstated. In that regard, and especially following the tragedy that occurred on Grounds on Nov. 13, 2022, the Department of Safety & Security continues its commitment to further educate the UVA community about public safety.

In this 60-minute training, the Department of Safety & Security will discuss what the University Threat Assessment Team, Office of Emergency Management, and Police Department are doing to prevent and, if needed, respond to, and notify the UVA community of an active attacker event.

Participants will learn about Emergency Notifications, how to report concerning behavior, and easy-to-remember options for people who are faced with a violent situation. This training is free and open to all students, employees, faculty, and staff of the Academic and UVA Health Divisions.
