Active Assault Response Training
Campus Safety would like to give a training presentation to any group on campus about Active Assault Response. Please contact Scott Wanzer at SWanzer@jbu.edu to schedule a presentation.
The training session is an interactive presentation including a 20 minute video entitled, ‘SHOTS FIRED on Campus (Student Edition): Guidance for Surviving an Active Assault Situation’ produced by The Center for Personal Protection & Safety. After the presentation, there is a discussion time to process what Escape looks like for you, what Lockdown looks like for you, and what Fight Back looks like for you.
Active Assault is a broader term than Active Shooter. An active assault can be done with a variety of weapons, not just a firearm.
JBU Campus Safety teaches the following response model for an active assault situation (ELF):
- ESCAPE if you can
- LOCKDOWN if you must
- FIGHT BACK if confronted
Please contact Scott Wanzer at SWanzer@jbu.edu to schedule a presentation.

This video about Active Shooter Response was produced by a partnership of the Department of Homeland Security and the City of Houston. The video is available in several languages.
WARNING - This video contains graphic content, and may not be suitable for all ages.
This video was produced by the Department of Homeland Security. It demonstrates possible actions to take if confronted with an active shooter scenario. It also shows how to assist authorities once law enforcement enters the scene.
Note - Active Shooter Response models for K-12 are different than the above, more adult focused model. K-12 campuses are less porous and commonly allow focus only on the Lockdown piece of response. In an adult model, every person is encouraged and empowered to Escape, Lockdown, or Fight as they see fit, given their background and current capacity.
