Personal Protective Actions

Most active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Because most incidents are over within minutes, you must be prepared to deal with the situation until law enforcement arrives. Preparedness and awareness are the keys to helping protect our employees, our customers, and ourselves. A protective actions video titled "Shots Fired on Campus" is available for checkout at the USF Tampa campus library. Additionally, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) also provides online protective actions and workplace violence courses.



If you are the victim of a crime, the University of South Florida is ready to assist you in the manner that you determine is best for you. If you desire confidentiality, there are campus and community resources that will respect that decision. View resources for victims of Sexual, Dating and Domestic Violence or Stalking >



The University of South Florida’s top priority is the safety of all students, faculty, staff and visitors.
