Auburn University holds active shooter response program in Phenix City

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - In the wake of countless shooting massacres across the country, Auburn University's active shooter response program is hosting informative events every month on how to respond to that situation.

Today's session is open to senior adults and their caregivers at the Central Activity Center in Phenix City.

A session is held every third Wednesday of the month. Auburn's active shooter response program has provided the answer to how to respond in the midst of an active shooter situation to thousands, helping to lead the way in training among many agencies and schools.

The Department of Campus Safety and Security says, if possible, flee the area from danger. If you are unable to flee, find a safe place and barricade the door.

Their main message is teaching the motto of Run-Hide-Fight.

The university's training department has also issued a YouTube video that has been implemented in several organizations.

Their primary goal is to provide life-saving information and skills with the mindset that an active shooter situation can happen anywhere, anytime.
