Did you know that DPSSS offers a number of training opportunities to University students, faculty and staff free of charge or at a very minimal cost? In the past year and a half DPSSS has increased its training programs for everyone at SLU to help ensure we continue to make SLU a safe campus for everyone to learn and work.
Training offerings currently available include: Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) training for females; Campus 360 Stay Safe Training; St. Louis City Fire Department approved Fire Extinguisher Training; American Heart Association (AHA) Automated Electric Defibrillator and Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (AED/CPR) training for medical professionals; AHA First Aid Training for lay responders; Federal Emergency Management Agency Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training; and National Weather Service Storm Spotter Training,
In addition to these training opportunities, DPSSS offers periodic training sessions in conjunction with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department covering the topics of drug and alcohol use and sexual assault awareness. Their partnership with the FBI allows them to provide training regarding cyber crime and the theft of intellectual property, too.
DPSSS has excellent external partners who enjoy assisting SLU with training programs. DPSSS would also like to hear from anyone who has a suggestion for training that they feel would benefit the campus community.
For more information on any of DPSSS' training programs or to offer suggestions, contact either Connie Tillman, SLU's emergency preparedness coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or SLU's crime prevention sergeant, Pasquale Signorino at email@example.com.
Effective Dec. 23, training information can also be accessed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SLU community is invited to attend "Safety on Campus," at 11:30 a.m., Dec. 21, in room 251 in the Busch Student Center. No RSVP is required and attendees are welcome to bring a lunch for this lunch and learn session.
