Midwest City, Okla. – Rose State College, in collaboration with Midwest City Police, on Thursday, April 12, will host a full-scale exercise to test its response to an active shooter scenario on campus.

The drill will involve multiple campus buildings, students and College employees as well as law enforcement, medical, fire and emergency management personnel.

“This will be a great learning opportunity for most of our students and faculty as we put our emergency plans to the test,” Rose State’s Coordinator, Safety, Security and Risk Management Joedon Hughes said. “This will also meet regulatory obligations described within the Clery Act.”

The College will conduct the exercise from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Thursday. It will focus on an active shooter and hostage situation inside the vacant student center.

Rose State employees, students and community members are advised that a large number of police and emergency personnel will be on campus during this exercise, and individuals not participating in the exercise should avoid the area.

In order to share information regarding the upcoming active shooter DRILL on the Rose State campus, frequently asked questions have been collected to address common questions surrounding the exercise. 

Media access to the exercise will be limited due to safety concerns and available space.
