SWU Campus Safety to offer active shooter training


Staff Report



CENTRAL – Southern Wesleyan University Campus Safety and the ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to the university’s Central campus Aug. 1 and Aug. 2.

This two day instructor course is designed to teach proactive survival strategies for violent intruder or active shooter incidents.

The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on scene.

The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be completed online at www.alicetraining.com.

ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate and is a useful strategy for everyone: law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and places of worship.

Completing the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE Training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their places of work. Additionally, registrants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.

ALICE is in line with recommendations from the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

About ALICE Training Institute

The ALICE Training Institute is changing how schools, universities, and businesses respond to armed intruders. ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate), developed after Columbine, teaches strategies to survive a life-threatening event. Supported by educators and law enforcement across the country, ALICE is quickly becoming the new standard of care.
