CIU Bringing Active Shooter Training to West Branch Area School District

MORRISDALE – The Central Intermediate Unit No. 10 and ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to the West Branch Area School District on June 26-27.

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 trainees with ALICE instructor certification. This training provides 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 registration can be completed online.

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).

Dr. J. Hugh Dwyer, Executive Director at the Central Intermediate Unit No. 10 has previously completed this informative and intensive training.

“It was an eye-opener. The ALICE Training forced me to change my thinking about how to encounter active shooters and protect students and staff,” he said.
