ALICE Training - Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate
ALICE is committed to increasing survivability in a violent intruder event through training proactive response options. There are more ways than one to be prepared for a violent event. Whether you are at a mall, in a theater, grocery shopping, attending a game or listening to a concert, you have options. When ALICE response strategies are implemented, unwilling participants in the event are empowered to choose their best survival option. Seconds count during a violent event and the actions taken in between when the event begins and law enforcement arrives are significant and can increase survivability. Currently, the Boerne Independent School District has completed ALICE training for most of its staff and administrators.
