  • Training Video "Shots Fired on Campus"

    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 the training video “Shots Fired on Campus.” MSUM’s response to an active shooter on campus would be to go into a University lockdown where you would shelter-in-place, but this video contains additional options for you to personally consider if we are ever faced with such an attack. Warning: the video includes 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 video. In an emergency, having thought even once about what you would do may make an important difference.
