Active Attacker Drills Reinstated for September 2022

During the current Covid-19 pandemic, due to limited classes taking place on campus, and a desire to reduce the level of stress facing our community, the fall active attacker drills at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber were postponed indefinitely. As Humber settles in to our “new normal”, it is it is important to reinstate the drills. The goal of these drills is to not only test our procedures but to ensure community members know and understand what to do in the unlikely event of an active threat on any of our campuses.

The Active Attacker drills take place the week of September 26, 2022. More detailed information regarding the drills will be shared in August.

The safety of our community continues to be our top priority. For information on Humber’s response to an active attacker – Run, Hide, Defend, please visit the public safety website at You can also view the York Region Police response video here as well.
