Morgantown, W.Va. – Do you know what to do if a gun is fired in your workplace or classroom? Are you trained to spot signs of trouble and head it off?

The WVU Police are offering three training sessions the week of Nov. 7 for students, faculty and staff at the Health Sciences Center.

At each one-hour session, you can learn how to protect yourself and others if a gun is used to threaten or injure people in your area. You will also get information on spotting the warning signs of workplace violence, and how to respond to or report behavior that may precede a violent incident.

The sessions will each meet at noon in the Fukushima Auditorium

  • On Monday, Nov. 7, both the “Shots Fired” and “Flashpoint” presentations will be focused on office settings.
  • On Thursday, Nov. 10, the same presentations will be focused on college student and classroom environments.
  •  On Friday, Nov. 11, the presentations will be set in patient care environments, including hospital facilities and emergency departments.

Any student, faculty member, or WVU or WVU Medicine staff member is welcome to participate in any of the sessions.
