    Preparation and forethought are critical to ensuring that each of us are as prepared as possible for tragic events that we hope will never happen on our campus.

    MSUM’s Emergency Management Team along with President Blackhurst invites you to watch either of the training videos, “Run Hide Fight”, or “Shots Fired on Campus”. MSUM’s response to an active shooter on campus would vary based on the situation. These videos contain options for you to personally consider if we are ever faced with such an attack. Warning: the videos include a simulation of an active shooting event.

    If you have questions after viewing the video, please contact Public Safety, publicsafety@mnstate.edu and we will provide you follow-up training and discussion about the content of the videos. In an emergency, having thought even once about what you would do may make an important difference.
