Active Shooter/Critical Incident Survival

In an on-going effort to keep the Clark University community educated in safety related matters, University Police, in conjunction with Human Resources and the Business Manager, offer a training session on how to survive a critical incident/active shooter situation several times throughout the academic year. While the possibility of an active shooter at Clark is remote, knowing how to react to an active shooter situation will increase chances of survival should such an incident occur. The primary presenter of the program is Clark University Officer Efrain Diaz, who has extensive training in active shooter response.
