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 reviews possible signs of of potential attackers, shows the Ohio State “Surviving an Active Shooter” video, and teaches the Run, Hide, Fight methodology.
Phase II – Workplace Assessment: Representatives from MIT Emergency Management and MIT Police will come to an office or academic space to provide run, hide, fight guidance specific to that area. Pre-requisite: Phase I training.
