“Shawn, I just wanted to drop you a line thanking you for your time, training, and expertise at the Dixon, IL two day ALICE Training last week. Both you and Jim were knowledgeable and very clear in sharing the need for ALICE and why the traditional lockdown drill just doesn’t make sense. I appreciated you two guys letting the facts explain both the need and effectiveness of ALICE and also not letting drama and sensationalism falsely drive the need for ALICE. The facts and scenarios more than explained everything. I walked away both excited about implementing ALICE in our school district as well as armed with great resources to do just that. We are meeting with our Admin Team this coming Tuesday morning to debrief and figure out our implementation plan. Thanks again.”
