MU Staff Advisory Council gives feedback on emergency situations after active threat last week

Since last week’s active threat near Mizzou’s campus, MU Staff Advisory Council worked on giving feedback to university leaders Thursday.

Some of the feedback, said there was too much confusion about what was going on, what to do, and how serious the threat was.

Chrissy Kintner, staff advisory council chair, told ABC 17 News after the meeting that some staff admitted to thinking it was a fire drill.

“Each building coordinator and each building needs to understand what to do when a certain alert goes off,” she said. “Also, make sure the MU alert website is updated if you are going to tell us go there.”

Kintner also said a lot of the confusion stemmed from the term “active threat.” Kintner said, “What is an active threat? I think people’s imagination is going to go to the worst possible place.”

Students on campus told ABC 17 News their teachers didn’t know what to do; some continued to teach class and others just ran out of the classroom. Most students agreed that campus-wide active shooter training is needed to lessen the confusion on what to do.
