Humber is changing its lockdown procedure to the Run, Hide, Defend method later this month.

In an exclusive interview, Rob Kilfoyle, Director, Public Safety and Emergency Management, said students, staff and faculty will no longer only have to hide in dark locked class rooms, the new drills will allow students more options amid threatening scenarios.

If under the circumstances of a dangerous situation, such as an active shooter, people will have the option of running away from the shooter, hiding or defending themselves as a last resort.

The emergency drills will be expected to run as of fall 2020.
