A.L.I.C.E. training scheduled
The BGSU Police Department will host a day of training in an alternative to the traditional lockdown response to an armed intruder. Known as A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate), the training shows how to take an active role in your survival in the event this occurs when lockdown is not appropriate.
Faculty, staff and students campus-wide are invited to attend one of the five sessions offered Feb. 20 in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater.
The approximately 90-minute training sessions will be held at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Registration is not required.
Instructors will discuss the mental and physical tools that could play a vital role in your survival.
