Oro Valley Sheepdogs Protecting the Flock!
Since 1999, there have been over 1691 deadly force incidents take place throughout our faith-based communities. On Saturday, March 24th, 95 security personnel, medical response team and congregation members from Canyon Del Oro Baptist Church received the knowledge, skills and abilities to better survive an active shooter event. Conducted by Landmark Ministry Protection and Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE), ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) is a set of proactive, options-based strategies, that increase church members’ chances of survival and bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and law enforcement arrives. These Oro Valley participants learned and experienced the decisive advantages of proactive vs. passive response strategies via numerous live scenario drills and Bleeding Control interventions and are now empowered to help save lives!
