“I spent the past two days in a training workshop for active shooter preparedness through ALICE Training Institute. It is sad that we have become a society where this training is necessary, but it’s incredibly important to be prepared. There have been lessons learned through tragedies such as Columbine, Sandy Hook, and Virginia Tech that have informed this type of training. While the training was exhausting, and oftentimes even frightening, we are fortunate to have resources such as this. If you have the opportunity – for your school, business, etc., take advantage of this training.”
