PostSubject: Active Shooter - Prepare with A.L.I.C.E.   Wed Mar 09, 2016 7:47 am

I just took a training session at NIU called A.L.I.C.E., which dealt with an active shooter response on Campus.
Many of you are probably aware that NIU did have an active shooter on our Campus in 2008 which left 6 students dead.
http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/02/14/university.shooting/

I would encourage all of you in school to ask you school Principal if your school can get trained in A.L.I.C.E., there are sessions for each grade level.

ALICE stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate. During ALICE training, participants are taught how to react to violent attackers. The training includes lectures on the security of the participants' current space and the benefits of the ALICE strategy.

Here is a video from NIU and the link to the A.L.I.C.E. website.

Ryan, thank you.

I started to read up on A.L.I.C.E. and sent the links to my teacher today, as did Jakob, so hopefully they will contact your college so we can get one here.

I have also been through this A.L.I.C.E. training here at Northern, and would recommend it highly, they bring up things you would not even think about doing. Knowing what to do if this should ever happen might make you take action and not panic, and eventually save your life, or the lives of other people.

This looks like a very good program, I hope a lot of other schools do this, not just on the college level, but high school and junior high.

Although I am home schooled, I hear about things like this happening other places too, like shopping centers. I think it would be good for everyone to have this training, whether they are in a school setting or not.
