RUN. HIDE. FIGHT. Surviving an active shooter event:
Recognizing and preventing violence on campus:
A shooting on campus is a tragic scenario-one that we have a hard time understanding, much less accepting. It is, however, a reality in our world today. When we refer to a Flash Point, we are defining a time and place where anger or hostility flares into violence. It's a moment when an individual loses their ability to manage their emotions and acts out in ways that are harmful to themselves or others. Oftentimes, after a violent incident occurs, authorities are able to retrace an offender's past and identify clues that, in retrospect, could have indicated signs of impending danger.
