Get Out. Hide. Fight.

Effective March 13, all workshops and events on campus have been postponed until further notice.

These sessions are aimed at teaching what to do in case they face an active attacker on the Ryerson campus. While the chances of an active threat situation occurring on the campus are extremely low, it’s important for Ryerson community members to have this knowledge in case it happens.

Visit the Active Attacker page to learn the key message of get out, hide, fight.

Level 1: Get out. Hide. Fight. (2-hour session)

This 2-hour session will provide participants with information, knowledge and tools to respond in the case of an active threat situation on campus. This will be followed by a discussion period.

Facilitators will elaborate on the options that are available to participants in an active attacker situation. The aim of this training is to make participants aware of these options should they ever find themselves in this rare, but possible, emergency scenario.

The session will consist of a brief introduction, followed by a presentation of the training video, background, context and a review of the option-based responses that can be employed if you are faced with an active attacker.
