University to present class on responding to violent situations

There will be four opportunities in March and April for faculty, staff and students to attend a University class titled “Active Shooter Response (Run, Hide, Fight).”  The one-hour class is intended to instruct people on how to respond to an active shooter incident or other types of work place violence.  It stresses awareness, preparation and rehearsal, which are considered by experts to be key to safety in such situations.

The class may be taken on any of the following four dates:

  • 28, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
  • March 16, 10-11 a.m.
  • April 4, 10-11 a.m.
  • April 25, 1-2 p.m.

The class will be taught in Reynolda Hall, Room 301, by Wake Forest Emergency Manager August Vernon.

Registration is encouraged.  To register, visit the Professional Development Center website.
