The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Department of Public Safety (DPS) is kicking off the school year with a variety of free online safety workshops to help students and employees stay safe on campus. These training sessions include Active Shooter Awareness and Response, Hurricane Preparedness, and Conflict Resolution and De-escalation training.
- Active Shooter Awareness and Response (75 min): Provides information on various active shooter scenarios, what you can do to keep yourself safe, and what to expect when police and DPS respond. This training uses concepts from the Department of Homeland Security’s Run-Hide-Fight program.
- Hurricane Preparedness (75 min): Learn about how to prepare for a hurricane in Hawaiʻi, including tips for preparing an emergency kit, what to do when a hurricane is approaching, and how to find a local shelter or shelter-in-place.
- Conflict Resolution and De-escalation (75 minutes): Learn about precipitating factors to conflict, signs of agitation, and discuss verbal and nonverbal de-escalation techniques. In addition, we discuss how to end the de-escalation process, and what to do when de-escalation isn’t possible. Recommended for faculty and staff.
- Safety and Wellness (1 hour): Learn about services offered by DPS, discuss safety tips for both on and off-campus, learn about common crime prevention measures that can be taken to increase safety on campus, and engage with DPS staff to have your safety questions answered.
