Active shooter response training available
The UNCSA Department of Police and Public Safety teaches A.L.I.C.E. concepts to mentally prepare our campus for violent attacks. Participants in A.L.I.C.E. learn about the actions that everyday people can take to survive a dangerous encounter with a violent intruder.
A.L.I.C.E. is a simple acronym for the following basic life-saving strategies:
• Alert - Notify the people within the danger zone about the life-threatening risk.
• Lockdown - Barricade your area and prepare to evacuate or counter if needed.
• Inform - Relay continuous, accurate information to responders about the incident.
• Counter - Challenges the attacker and regain control. (This is the last resort.)
• Evacuate - Remove yourself from the area of the threat as soon as it is safe to do so.
During A.L.I.C.E trainings, participants work through practical scenarios that uses each of the principles learned during the lecture so they can understand the benefits of each strategy. Participants are taught the value of teamwork in overcoming a potential attacker. When you participate in A.L.I.C.E training, the scenarios can be conducted in your office, department or school to evaluate the current security of your space.
