You’re not in Wonderland anymore. Instead it’s the A.L.I.C.E. Training Institute: Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. Developed in 2001 by officer Greg Cane, shortly after the Columbine Shootings. Cane was having a discussion with his wife, an elementary school principal, in regards to the school’s protocol dealing with active shooters. Not liking the answer that left students and school employees as easy targets, Cane partnered with another officer and created what is now the A.L.I.C.E. Training Institute to offer better preparations and strategies for schools in the event of such incidents as Columbine.
A.L.I.C.E. has since grown and many government and law enforcement organizations recommend concepts that mirror the A.L.I.C.E. Training. A.L.I.C.E. also goes beyond schools by providing cutting-edge research and material on the plausible course of actions for churches, hospitals, businesses, and other facilities alike. With Fearing’s dedication in providing high quality security and surveillance to Wisconsin school and other entities our Business Development Executive, Steve Van Dyke, has taken the steps to partner with A.L.I.C.E. and become a certified trainer. What does this mean? Steve can assist Wisconsin Schools with other certified A.L.I.C.E. trainers who want to take part in learning the best strategies and practices in the event of an active shooter in their building.
