"Joe Hendry just did an ALICE training for us in Red Lake MN. He was amazing and what we are taking from this back to our school will help many feel empowered. Thank you Joe! You were considerate, accommodating, and conscientious of our heightened emotions. I and many others truly appreciate what you do and [...]
"I am a school board member and teacher at Pipestone Area Schools. Our staff all went through the ALICE video learning presentations last spring and today we just finished with the classroom/active shooter training. Our instructor was Robert Tirollo. I want to let you know what an outstanding job Mr. Tirollo did during the classroom [...]
"Thank you Greg and Lisa for making the trek to the frozen tundra state of Wisconsin for our conference yesterday. Great information that you provided the SRO's and administrators! Looking forward to working with you in June for the ALICE class!"
"I was very impressed with the program and even learned a few ideas I hadn't considered before! Very well done and I'm glad that our school system is ready to adopt this kind of system for protecting our kids!"
"I went through the ALICE training last year with Greg Crane, and in 10 years of school security service, and over 20 years of military service, I've never received more thorough training than from Greg. It's a great program and any school not utilizing this system is negligent in its main responsibility; student's safety!"
"I cannot express how much I enjoyed the training. It totally transformed my lockdown mindset and revolutionized my thinking. It was very empowering and we are eager to train our staff and students to employ these measures in the event of such a scenario. I simply cannot say enough wonderful words about the program."
"On behalf of the entire school district - students, teachers, staff, administrators, board - I would like to express our deep appreciation to the folks from ALICE for helping us take the first big step in changing our protocol for school safety."
"The Instructor made it easy to ask questions, he gave many examples of things that didn't work to ensure safety and then reinforced many strategies that empower people in dangerous and threatening situations, and the hands on scenarios were very valuable. Connections with people in the class were very valuable as well. It was as [...]
"I believe that preparation and rehearsal are key to fighting against violence in school. This program appears to empower young people to be proactive versus reactive. Thank you for providing this service; my children are in grade school and soon entering middle school."
"What an amazing class! Such an eye opening experience, I was totally convinced after the first hour of the class. Joe Hendry is a dynamic instructor and I highly recommend this class to anyone involved in emergency management and security, especially administrators and staff at schools."
"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 [...]
