Department of Public Safety Continues Emergency Exercises

Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber (Humber) know that the safety of our community is paramount to ensure our students and staff can study/work in the safest space possible. When incidents do occur, a quick, efficient, reliable response from our security staff is imperative to ensuring a quick resolution.  As part of its ongoing goal of continuous improvement, training and education, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) is implementing an exercise program for security guards. The aim of the exercise program is to provide real-life scenarios to guards that allows them to practice their response to various scenarios in a safe, controlled setting.

The second of these “live” exercises will take place on July 27 and 28 at both the Lakeshore and North campuses. In an effort to minimize the impact on the campus community, exercises will take place at times when fewer people are expected to be on campus. Exercises will take place as follows:

  • Lakeshore Campus – July 27 between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. L building 2nd floor cafeteria and the entire first floor
  • North Campus – July 28 between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. LRC 3rd floor

Signage will be placed in the exercise area to identify that an exercise is taking place. Exercise participants will be identified by wearing orange vests that indicate “Exercise Participant” on the back. Any community members who may be in the area are asked to not interfere with the exercise activity.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Adnan Salam, Assistant Manager, Security Operations, North Campus at or Thomas Urbaniak, Assistant Manager, Security Operations, Lakeshore Campus at
