I am going to be an adjunct instructor at a community college this fall. I was given a key to my classroom and shown how to use the barricade device for the door to the classroom. That was my whole orientation.

A year ago, at my school in (San Francisco), there was an active shooter training for staff/instructors on learning how to use available items as weapons if they decide to fight back. It was not a mandatory event. Earlier this week, Cal State Fullerton happened. The buzz is there might be another training that would be mandatory.

My company builds online training for a very specific niche industry. Our #1 rated and completed course right now is active shooter and our #1 request is to translate it into as many languages as we can. While I feel fortunate to have a role in providing value to the industry, I sure as hell wish it wasn't this.

My company did mandatory active shooter training last year- before they laid off 25% of the staff.

Sadly, I'm guessing it was planned that way?
