RUN/HIDE/FIGHT

This video demonstrates the philosophy from Homeland Security of RUN/HIDE/FIGHT in the event of an active shooter on campus.  It was created by the Chief of University Police of SUNY NEW PALTZ who has given us permission to use on our website and in trainings.  The office of Safety and Security will be preparing trainings with faculty, staff and students on this philosophy with the understanding that this does not change our College policy or procedures for the STAY IN PLACE component in our Emergency Response Plan.  Any questions or concerns please feel free to call Campus Safety and Security at 315-786-2222 or email the Director at whissong@sunyjefferson.edu
