Active Shooter, Intruder, Hostage Taker, etc.
LVC’s Office of Public Safety offers ALICE training to any team or interested group. ALICE is the leading active shooter response program in the nation. The purpose of ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training is to prepare individuals to handle the threat of an active shooter. You can learn more at ALICE Training. Please contact the Office of Public Safety at ext. 6111 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in receiving ALICE training for your area or group.
In an active shooter situation, you should quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your own life.
Action Options Include:*
Evacuate—if there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.
Hide out—if evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you.
Take action—as a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or incapacitate the active shooter.
