HGTC Offers SAFE Training


The S.A.F.E. response to violence is an easy way to remember the actions that need to be taken in any given situation that threatens the personal safety of a member of the Horry-Georgetown Techincal College community.
S.A.F.E. stands for Secure, Alert, Fight, Escape.

The S.A.F.E. method is meant to empower individuals during a threatening situation and equip them with ideas and knowledge of what to do in dangerous situations by proactively providing a plan of action. This, one hour session, is provided by Coastal Carolina University Department of Public Safety officers with extensive knowledge in the areas of both law enforcement and civilian response to active shooters or armed aggressors.

The session will be a mixture of both presentation and audience participation exercises that help promote the S.A.F.E. response to violence model.
