The Reach & Impact of ALICE Active Shooter Training in Texas
The team behind the ALICE program works hard to empower Texas residents and organizations of all types and sizes. Our Texas active shooter training has reached all corners of the Lone Star State, and we continue to assist people every day.
Texas Active Shooter Legislation for Greater Safety & Preparedness
As part of efforts to make schools more prepared in the event of an active shooter, the state of Texas has implemented mandatory drills and updates to emergency operations, along with new legislation regarding campus active shooter response plans. To ensure that your school district is fully prepared to address these new regulations and legislation, we encourage you to review our brief overview of Texas state requirements. Understanding these updates will also help you to more effectively create active shooter training for your district.
By January 1, 2020, the commissioner, in consultation with the TxSSC and the fire marshal, must adopt rules on evacuating and securing facilities and designating up to eight mandatory drills. These active shooter training drills in Texas will include:
- Number of evacuation fire exits
- Evacuation drills
Updates to Emergency Operations Plans
- Texas active shooter emergency plans must address Prevention.
- Emergency plans must address school safety training for employees, including substitute teachers.
- Plans must provide for physical and psychological safety in natural disasters, active shooters and other dangerous situations identified by the TxSCC.

What Others Are Saying About Us
“The Arizona Counterterrorism Information Center officers say this is a step up from Run Hide Fight. And because first responders will be learning it, it only gives them an edge to act quickly themselves and help the community do the same.”
“To me, it’s not a matter of if, but when the next shooting will happen. I just want to always be prepared. Always know my options.”
“The ALICE program is one of the most important things I’ve done as a law enforcement officer. It gives options to respond to violence…I thought it was a neat idea that people can be in charge of their own survival.”
“Experts say that there is no single response that works in every situation because each one is different. Their best advice is to keep your options open, what’s known as a multi-option response.”
“ALICE training increases the options for the adults in charge of children in the event of a God-forbid situation,” said Superintendent Michael Lubelfeld. “We can now train and empower our adults to use their judgment based on evidence-based methods that include options other than lockdown.”
