New type of training for school shootings could work its way down to lower grade levels

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.
