As part of the Thompson Library “In Service Training” Day and in cooperation with the Department of Public Safety, we conducted he first ever Flint Campus Secure- n Place safety drill.
DPS Director Ray Hall provided all participants with a brief presentation outlining exactly what constituted a Secure In Place situation and how the campus would receive the warning.
He itemized what should be done in the case of an active shooter confirmed nearby on Campus (but not inside the building).
After the presentation, people were divided into groups of observers and participants and began an exercise that was somewhat more realistic than a few of our participants had anticipated.
Adrenaline ran high, but everyone came away with a greater appreciation of what they could do to protect themselves in the event of a Secure In Place situation on our campus.
Our librarians are available to speak about their experience as participants of this exercise to any department or group that may have an interest.
