Responding in an Active Threat Situation (Lockdown)

In this video you will learn what to do if you ever confront the unthinkable: an individual shooting at people at random in a populated area.


The video simulates the conditions you might experience during an active shooter event. Some people might find the video disturbing. It might help to view the video with others, such as classmates, friends or colleagues, so you can talk about it after you have watched it. If you think you need to talk to a professional, there are resources available: If you are a TWU student, staff, or faculty member, you can contact the University Wellness Centre, located on the second floor of Douglas Centre. Call 604-513-2024, email, or visit the University Wellness Centre.
