It may mean your safety and the safety of those around you in the event of an actual emergency. Get ready. Review lockdown procedures and watch the training video Shots Fired on Campus (login required). 
Make sure we have your cellphone number. You will not receive a security alert about the drill on Wednesday—or future emergency notices—if we do not have your cellphone number. To provide your number or check to see that our records are current, send an email to hr@pugetsound.edu.
