Active Shooter Training Course to Be Held on Campus Monday and Tuesday

On Monday and Tuesday, the Old Dominion University Office of Emergency Management will host the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to facilitate a Campus Active Shooter Integrated Response pilot course on campus. This course is designed to enhance the readiness of public safety personnel and other responders in the event of an active threat incident.

The first day of instruction is classroom-based; the second day involves realistic practical exercises in several campus buildings. These exercises will be held in Constant Hall, Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Building, S.B. Ballard Stadium, Kornblau Alumni Center and Goode Theater, and will consist of scenarios that could include the use of devices that simulate the sound of ammunition being fired. These controlled training scenarios present no threat to the University community.

Simulations will occur in each building throughout the day Tuesday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Signage will be posted at each building entrance and access to the specific training areas in each building will be restricted while exercises are under way.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ODU Office of Emergency Management at oem@odu.edu or 757-683-5116.
