Our FIU Police are launching an enhanced FIU Active Shooter Response Training program. This initiative is rooted in the need to provide our faculty and staff important tools to deal with the kind of incident we hope never happens on our campuses.

Over the next few months, a team of FIU Police will conduct training sessions in each building at all of our campuses and centers. Faculty and staff will have an opportunity to be trained in strategies to survive an active shooter situation. Students in the building during the training may participate as well.

On training day, there will be police activity around the particular building.

Please note that realistic-sounding shots will be fired during the drill portion of the training.

Training dates and locations for the month of July are below. Please look for future training schedules.

  • Thursday, August 2nd– Ocean Bank Convention Center (OBCC) Arena
  • Friday, August 3rd– Owa Ehan (OE)
  • Tuesday, August 7th– Chemistry and Physics (CP)
