ALICE training is a popular method of training due to that they were the first ones to question the “lockdown-only” policies and training.
Alert – Recognize the signs of danger.
Lockdown – If it’s unsafe to flee, make sure to barricade entries to your location.
Inform – Clearly communicate to others through the safest way possible, whether that’s via text, PA, phone calls.
Counter – Create a distraction, noise or movement, that will reduce the shooter’s likelihood of knowing where you are.
Evacuate – If it’s safe to do, make sure to get as far away from the shooter as you can or to a safe area.
