BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -
For years schools have taught teachers and students to lockdown and stay where they are during a school shooting.
Now there’s a more active response security experts think might work better.
It’s called ALICE training.
The process still begins with a lockdown but it adds the step of notifying everyone on campus of exactly what is happening.
ALICE also includes countering the shooter by throwing things like chairs at the gunman.
A local man certified in the training said he has already started contacting local school districts about the training.
