Pepperdine to Participate in Active Shooter Drills

Pepperdine University

Pepperdine University will partner with law enforcement and fire agencies on Thursday, Aug. 7, for its 10th annual active shooter drills, as part of the university’s commitment to keep students, faculty and staff safe. The training focuses on four key areas: prevention, intervention, rescue and family reunification. The drill will take into account new, innovative tactics when it comes to dealing with shooting incidents.

Drills will simulate incidents on campus, where police and fire personnel will respond and take simulated action. Two scenarios will take place at 9 a.m. and at 1 p.m. Both will be at the university’s Drescher Graduate Campus, 24255 Pacific Coast Hwy.
