News in Brief: Shooter Survival Workshop Thursday

An Active Shooter Survival Workshop will be held Thursday by the UC Davis Police Department (UCDPD). The 90-minute event will be open to all students, faculty and staff and will address the five main steps that increase chances of survival in the event of a shooting: “Escape, cover, hide, play dead and as a last resort, attack the attacker,” a press release stated.

Police Chief Matthew Carmichael, who will instruct the workshop, designed the course specifically for the campus community.

Workshop participants will also learn how the active shooter scenarios relate to people outside the UCDPD.
“[The workshop] emphasizes the need for communities to pre-plan for catastrophic events and shows them how to identify an active-incident safe space in the campus environment,” the UCDPD stated in the release.
The workshop will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the King Lounge, located on the second floor of the Memorial Union.
