How to Survive an Active Shooter – New Video

March 21, 2017

UConn’s Office of Emergency Management has developed a short, new video detailing how to survive if you are caught in an active threat situation.

The new video features guidelines put forth by the Department of Homeland Security in a format that is easy to digest and less than one minute long. It is the first of a new series of shareable videos that aim to educate viewers with a basic understanding of how to react during all types of hazardous events that may occur on campus – and beyond.

The link to UConn OEM’s YouTube page and video can be found here.
