B-CU Holds Active Threat Drill


Students, Faculty and Staff Will Participate in an Active Threat Response Training

On Friday, August 10, 2018, at 9:05 a.m. members of Bethune-Cookman University Campus Safety, Daytona Beach Police Department, and Daytona Beach Fire Department S.A.V.E team will conduct an active threat training on the B-CU Campus. The drill will allow the University to test its emergency response system and provide a view of how local law enforcement responds to active threat situations. 

Utilizing various tactics and approaches, law enforcement officers will instruct a select group of role players who will participate in a mock drill in the event of an active threat in the University residence hall(s).

B-CU has worked closely with the Daytona Beach Police Department and local Fire Department to provide guidance in emergency planning, response and prevention of active threat incidents.

Media is encouraged to attend and is required to submit a press request to the B-CU Office of Communications.
