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


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.
