Advanced ALICE Training (2 days)

Hosted by:  US Bureau of Reclamation

The purpose of advanced ALICE training is to educate local and school-based law enforcement, as well as church, hospital, and workplace administrators and safety professionals about our researched-based, proactive response approach to Violent Intruder events.

The ALICE training program is designed to supplement current “Lock-down” or “Secure-in-Place” procedures used frequently in our public schools and institutions.  Tragic historic events have dictated the need of enhanced response options to increase chances of surviving a horrific event.

Program Topic Areas Include:

  • Case Studies
  • Policy and Procedures Review
  • Infrastructure Design
  • Proactive Use of Technology
  • Community Resource Assistance
  • Mass Evacuations
  • Trauma First Aid
  • Practical Scenario Training
  • Lesson Preparation
