Dear UH Mānoa Faculty, Staff and Students,
The University of Hawaii at Mānoa Department of Public Safety (DPS) will conduct a campus wide lockdown/shelter-in-place training exercise on Tuesday, August 20 between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. The exercise will also include a law enforcement response within Murakami Stadium on lower campus at UH Mānoa. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other local law enforcement agencies will be on campus to participate. The goal of the exercise is to prepare students, employees, and local law enforcement in the event of a campus emergency that requires lockdown or shelter-in-place.
While we plan to provide more information about the exercise as the date approaches, DPS is seeking current UH Mānoa students and employees who wish to volunteer to participate as victims, witnesses, and bystanders for the scenario. Your participation gives first responders and law enforcement a realistic opportunity to practice with actual people in the area during the exercise. If you are interested in participating, please read the following information carefully:
Participants should expect to attend the exercise at Murakami Stadium between 7:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Tuesday, August 20, although some participants may be released before noon (depending on your assigned role).
If you are interested in participating, you must attend one of our upcoming Active Shooter Awareness & Response training sessions offered throughout the month of July and early August (see links below). Space is limited, so you must register for a course in order to attend. Even if you decide not to participate in the exercise, you can still attend the Active Shooter Awareness & Response Training. If you do not attend one of these sessions, you will not be permitted to participate in the exercise. Even if you have taken this training in the past, you must do so again, as this particular training session will include specific information about the exercise and a safety briefing so all participants can know what to expect.
PLEASE NOTE: All participants must be a current student or employee of UH Mānoa, and to ensure the safety of all, no exceptions will be made. STUDENTS must bring a current UH ID to the training and the exercise to participate. For EMPLOYEES, we understand that some employees do not have an employee ID - we will verify employment through your department, but if you have a UH or department ID, please bring it with you to speed up the process. We will not allow any recording devices or cameras during the training, debriefing, or exercise.
