What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

What could be more vital than listening to the voice of our very own in-house expert, Lieutenant Trinity Delafance, when it comes to the latest research on situational awareness with regard to an active shooter situation? This is more than simply a rehash of “run, hide, fight.”

This session will include a simulation as well as a historical overview of active shooter events in the U.S. We will look at case studies, review emergency response plans, and most importantly, learn how to create our own unique survival mindset.

Please join UHD's Center for Public Service and Community Research for this vitalvoices session. RSVP: (This event will NOT be presented virtually)
