Pima Community College Active Killer Response Training
Since 2013, there have been over 429 school shootings in America – an average of nearly one per week. On Friday, May 3rd, 20 teachers and students from Pima Community College’s Desert Vista Campus received the knowledge, skills and abilities to better survive an active killer event. Conducted by Integrated Community Solutions to Active Violence Events (ICSAVE), 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!
