Community leaders invited to participate in active shooter training at Salve Regina on March 9-10

Leaders of schools, universities, businesses, hospitals and places of worship are encouraged to participate in a two-day instructor’s course designed to teach proactive survival strategies in the event of violent intruder or active shooter incidents. Hosted by Salve Regina’s Office of Safety and Security, the ALICE Training Institute (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) will be conducted March 9-10.

The goal of the ALICE program is to provide individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments in the gap between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on scene. The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be completed online at www.alicetraining.com.

“Salve Regina University fully supports all our local schools and businesses and we hope to assist in keeping everyone safe by offering the opportunity to attend this valuable training,” said Michael Caruolo, Salve Regina’s director of Safety & Security.

Completing the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in ALICE Training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back to their places of work. Additionally, registrants will gain access to exclusive ALICE resources.

Developed following the tragic 1999 shootings at Columbine High School, the ALICE Training Institute adheres to recommendations from the U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Supported by educators and law enforcement across the country, the program conducts an average of 20 training sessions per month throughout the U.S.
