In the news: NBC 26 covers active shooter training

We told you here recently about this week’s two-day, on-campus active shooter training, a collaborative effort of UW-Green Bay Public Safety and the FBI. Involving participants from a number of area law enforcement departments, the scenario-based training included the use of “simunition” guns that are designed to look and sound real. Although most of the training was closed to anyone other than law enforcement, NBC 26 was able to capture some sample footage from the training and conduct interviews with participants including UW-Green Bay Police Chief Tom Kujawa. See the NBC 26 story.

 

Active shooter training to be held June 30, July 1 in Wood Hall

Already distributed campuswide but repeated here for the record, UW-Green Bay Public Safety and the FBI will be hosting active shooter training Monday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 1 in Wood Hall. The second and third floor of the hall will be closed with signs indicating the training, and will not be accessible to anyone except training participants. This is a scenario-based training exercise and police will be using simunition guns that look and sound real. There may be loud banging and screaming coming from the second and third floor of Wood Hall during training. Please share this information with anyone who may attempt to access Wood Hall on those days, and feel free to call Public Safety (x2300) with questions or concerns.
