Southwestern College and the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) Training Institute will bring ALICE instructor certification training to Winfield on July 16 and 17. The course will be held in Mossman Hall at Southwestern College.
This two-day instructor certification course is designed to teach proactive option-based strategies to increase survivability in a violent critical incident. The ALICE strategies empower individuals to participate in their own survival in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives. Organizers point out that through training and empowerment, citizens can apply the ALICE proactive strategies and improve chances of survival in any environment where they may find themselves confronted by an active shooter or violent intruder.
“ALICE training is the original options-based response program that is designed to replace an inadequate lockdown-only response plan,” organizers say. “ALICE addresses the fallacies of a one-size-fits-all response plan by explaining the truths and realities of violent critical incidents. The reality is that extremely tragic outcomes in these events can be mitigated. They are very much survivable.”
The ALICE strategy is applicable for a wide variety of organizations: law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses, and places of worship. Completing the ALICE certification instructor course provides individuals with certification in ALICE strategies and allows them to bring those same strategies back to their groups. Additionally, registrants will gain access to ALICE resources.
ALICE is aligned with recommendations from Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Education, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and many state government agencies.
