CT schools plan for on-campus attacks
Schools in southwestern Connecticut say they have plans for attacks like the one that occurred Monday at Ohio State University.
Police at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield say they constantly train for incidents like it.
Students at the university learn the same three words campus police at Ohio State sent out in alert to students: "Run, hide, fight."
Paul Healy, Sacred Heart's public safety director, says "run" is the most important of the three. Officials want to get as many students out of harm's way as quickly as possible.
"The first thing we would be doing is moving people away," he says. "So, as they did at Ohio State, they sent out an alert. We would activate our emergency notification system."
Sacred Heart's campus also has a network of security cameras.
