In the wake of the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., last week, MSU Police and the Office of Emergency Management will give a presentation on how Montana State University has prepared for an active shooter, as well as the most current guidance on how to survive an active shooter incident.
The presentation is set for Thursday, Oct. 8, from 3-4 p.m. in the Procrastinator Theatre of the SUB. The presentation will include information regarding the main elements of MSU’s Emergency Operations Plan, as well as protocols for an active shooter scenario. It will also include a panel discussion and question and answer session, history and background, and opening and closing remarks by MSU President Waded Cruzado. The presentation is open to everyone.
MSU Police also offers group presentations on this subject and other subjects. Please visit MSU Police's "Request a Presentation" by clicking here. You may also request a presentation by contacting Sgt. Michael Stanley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 994-1203.
Also on the MSU Police "Request a Presentation" page, there is a link for a 6 minute video called "RUN HIDE FIGHT — Surviving an Active Shooter." The video is used nationwide to educate the public on how to respond to an active shooter. Please note that some may find the initial sequence disturbing.
MSU faculty, staff and students are also encouraged to consider signing up for the MSU Alert text messaging system. MSU Alert is a voluntary system for students, faculty, staff and members of the public to receive timely text messages in the event of an imminent threat on or near campus. Again, enrollment in the text messaging system is voluntary, and individuals who choose not to enroll will not receive a text message.
