Fort Scott Community College will host a two-day ALICE instructor training course from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on February 23 and 24, at the Danny & Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center.
The ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) instructor training course is designed to teach participants proactive survival strategies to address violent intruder or active shooter incidents. These strategies can be utilized by schools, hospitals, businesses and places of worship.
Those who complete the course receive certification in ALICE training, which allows them to bring ALICE strategies back to their workplaces to train others. Additionally, registrants 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). For more information about ALICE, visit alicetraining.com.
