    This class will focus on techniques to keep a confrontation from becoming violent. Many members of the UGA community are involved in exchanges that have the potential to become heated. Some of these encounters are with the public, students or other co-workers. Some individuals become frustrated when they do not receive the answer they desire and become difficult to deal with. This class will discuss how to keep unpleasant encounters of this nature from becoming violent and how to de-escalate a heated exchange. The goal of the class will be to provide the participants with the ability to obtain voluntary compliance from an individual who does not want to comply. This is an entry-level, beginner type class that will introduce these concepts and ideas.

  • Plan, Prepare, React: Active Shooter Response Options – UGA Faculty/Staff

    An active shooter is defined as an armed person who has used deadly force on people and continues to do so while having unrestricted access to additional victims. Although active shooter incidents on college campuses are rare events, the shootings which occurred on the Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University campuses demonstrate that faculty, staff and students should be ready for any type of emergency. This training program, which includes a 10-minute video and a training scenario, was developed on the UGA campus to be a resource for all 35 University System of Georgia institutions. The goal of this program is to provide faculty, staff and students with emergency response options should they become involved in an active shooter situation on campus or in the community.

    Get CPR/AED certified  and learn how to help when it’s needed most. As part of our mission to train people how to respond to and prepare for emergencies, we offer CPR/AED certification classes that can help you save a life when every moment counts. You may not realize it, but the response time for first responders after 911 is called averages 8-12 minutes, and during sudden cardiac arrest  each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces someone’s chances of survival by approximately 10%. This is why, at the American Red Cross, we support the position that improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year. In fact, we believe that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.
