Pima CC Active Shooter Response Training A Success!
Since 2013, there have been over 300 school shootings in America – an average of nearly one a week. On Friday, Friday, February 23rd, 25 teachers and students from Pima Community College’s Desert Vista Campus received the knowledge, skills and abilities to better survive an active shooter event. Conducted by Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE), the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, and Sierra Vista Police Department, ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) is a set of proactive, options-based strategies, that increase school employees’ and students’ chances of survival and bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and law enforcement arrives. Pima Community College participants learned and experienced the decisive advantages of proactive vs. passive response strategies via numerous live scenario drills and are now empowered to help save lives!
