In order to help students, faculty, and staff know what to do in the event of an active shooter emergency, Johns Hopkins University is offering a new online training course called "Preparing for an Active Shooter".
In a message to the university community, Jon Links, vice provost and chief risk and compliance officer, and Lee James, executive director of Campus Safety and Security, encouraged everyone to take the short e-course.
"Active shooter incidents are rare on college campuses, but as we have seen in recent years, they can occur anywhere," they wrote. "It's therefore important that our students, staff, and faculty know what to do in this type of emergency situation."
Links and James said that the course "provides basic information that you can use to protect yourself and others during an active shooter incident. It's straightforward, interactive, and should take only 10–15 minutes to complete."
