(CE) The Unthinkable Lessons Learned from an Active Shooter on Campus

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

CAUBO Partnered Session: There is nothing more frightening in higher education that an active shooter on your campus. The University of Alberta experienced this in June of 2012 when an armed robbery took place in a residence facility resulting in the shooting deaths and serious injury of four armoured car officers. This event changed our institution profoundly and there were many lessons learned. In response to this event the university undertook three separate reviews. By attending this session the speaker will share with you how the university responded, the lessons learned and how the lessons learned may assist your organization in responding to and recovering from such an unthinkable situation.
Learning Objectives:
 Receive open and frank comments on what worked and what did not in the
University’s response to the shooting
 Get a unique and comprehensive understanding of what was going on
within the University’s EOC
 Receive advice on how institutions can prepare themselves for responding
to and recovering from such an event
