Active Shooter/Violent Intruder Training
MIT has adopted the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “Run. Hide. Fight.” program for responding to an encounter with a violent intruder or active shooter. In conjunction with MIT Police, MIT Emergency Management conducts training sessions to help the MIT community learn these response skills. The training is conducted in two progressive phases:
- Phase I – Active Shooter/Violent Intruder Awareness Course: An in-class session that provides an overview of active shooter/violent intruder incidents, prevention tips, how MIT Police are specially trained to respond to these incidents, and how individuals should respond using the run, hide, fight method.
- Phase II – Workplace Assessment: Representatives from MIT Emergency Management and MIT Police will come to an office, academic space, or living quarters and provide run, hide, fight guidance specific to that area. Pre-requisite: Phase I training.
To schedule a session, please complete this form. We require at least 25 participants in order to hold the Phase I training, as well as the ability to publicize the session to the rest of the community in case anyone else would like to attend.
