Shots Fired on Campus: When Lightning Strikes

No campus today is immune from an active shooter incident. Unfortunately these events have occurred on campuses of all size from coast-to-coast. At UWF, the UWF Police is responsible to ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff and community visitors. Therefore, we are making the campus community aware of this very important topic and how they can take action to increase their chances of survival should such an event occur. 

Unfortunately, this contemporary, violent event is occurring at universities with catastrophic results. The Center for Personal Protection and Safety has released an instructional video and training program designed to empower students, faculty, and staff with knowledge and strategies for preventing and surviving an active shooter situation.

The "Shots Fired On Campus" video (requires UWF login) provides the individual with critical guidance on how to recognize and survive an active shooter situation.
