Parents and the Washtenaw County community at large have the chance to learn more about Active Shooter training designed to ensure a uniform response to those types of threats county-wide.

A pair of public forums this month will introduce the public to the ALICE active shooter training model that’s been adopted locally.  ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.

The intense ALICE training model was adopted in response to a dramatic increase in school violence and school shootings across the nation.
