An active shooter is defined as an armed person who has used deadly force on people and continues to do so while having unrestricted access to additional victims. Active shooter situations can occur anywhere, even on college and university campuses. A link to an Active Shooter video is provided below.

Description: An active shooter is defined as an armed person who has used deadly force on people and continues to do so while having unrestricted access to additional victims. Although active shooter incidents on college campuses are rare events, the shootings which occurred on the Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University campuses demonstrate that faculty, staff and students should be ready for any type of emergency. This training program, which includes a 10-minute video and a training scenario, was developed on the UGA campus to be a resource for all 35 University System of Georgia institutions. The goal of this program is to provide faculty, staff and students with emergency response options should they become involved in an active shooter situation on campus or in the community.
