Campus exercise in November: Handling violent situations

What do you do if a violent situation unfolds on campus? In partnership with the University of Agder (UiA), the emergency services in Agder are conducting a PLIVO exercise on both campuses on 16 and 23 November.

PLIVO stands for ‘pågående livstruende vold’ (ongoing life-threatening violence). The emergency services have extensive experience with such exercises, which provide insight into how to manage violent situations should they arise.

In collaboration with UiA, the emergency services in Agder will conduct a major PLIVO exercise on both campuses in Novermber:

Campus Kristiansand: November 16, Building 46

Campus Grimstad: November 23, Building D

The exercise takes place from 09:00 to around 13:30.

Gunfire exchanges and injuries will be simulated, and the exercise will result in increased noise - with both the fire department, police, and ambulance present.

Both staff and students may become involved in the incident and must follow instructions from the police. This applies to everyone in the buildings on these days.
