After the shootings in Ottawa last week, we asked security, what would happen if a crisis happened within close proximity to Ryerson? What we found was the Ryerson security expects every person to have read this “Yellow Book” for crisis situations. Yet, an investigation by the Ryersonian revealed that more than 100 students and faculty members have never heard of this document before. Are we to blame for being so uninformed? And would students know what to do in a “lockdown” situation? There a vital lessons that go beyond Ryerson security’s 13-page PDF document online.
