A training program that uses chilling realism to demonstrate how to survive an active shooter is now available for the campus community.

StaySAFE: Surviving an Active Shooter is available to anyone with a Penn State Access ID at StaySAFE.psu.edu.

The strategies in the Penn State Public Media-produced program follow the acronym SAFE, defined as:

  • Search for a safe place.
  • Alert the authorities.
  • Find a place to hide.
  • End the threat.

The program addresses how to identify violent situations, what to do, what to expect from law enforcement and how University emergency warning systems will be used.
