UMMS active attacker training sessions coming in September

September 4, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

What would you do if you found yourself in an active attacker situation? What would law enforcement be doing? How would you know an “all clear” had been issued?

To help answer these and other questions, there will be five active attacker training sessions with officer Kaitlin Deslatte from the U-M Department of Public Safety & Security (DPSS) to be held at the beginning of the 2019-2020 academic year.

Registration is not required.

  • Tuesday, Sept. 10: 10 – 11 a.m., Buhl 5915
  • Wednesday, Sept. 11: Noon – 1 p.m., NCRC 300 rm 376 (feel free to bring a lunch)
  • Thursday, Sept. 12: 3 – 4 p.m., Taubman Library 2901
  • Wednesday, Sept. 18: 6 – 7 p.m., Taubman Library 2901
  • Saturday, Sept. 21: 11 a.m. – noon, Taubman Library 2901

“Safety is everyone’s responsibility and this active attacker training is important as it will equip you with some basic skills to react and response in the unlikely event of the worst case scenario,” said Deslatte. “DPSS is always here to help, so never hesitate to reach to us 24/7. Trust your instincts — if you see something, say something.”
