Active shooter response training coming to Seymour

The Seymour Police Department and ALICE Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE instructor certification training to the city Oct. 14 and 15 at Seymour High School.

This two-day instructor certification course is designed to teach proactive option-based strategies to increase survivability in a violent critical incident.

The ALICE strategies empower individuals to participate in their own survival in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate and is a valuable strategy for everyone — law enforcement, schools, universities, hospitals, businesses and places of worship.

Completing the course provides individuals with certification in ALICE proactive strategies and allows them the opportunity to bring those same strategies back to their organization. Additionally, registrants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.

ALICE is aligned with recommendations from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Education, Federal Bureau of Investigation and many state government agencies.
