Pima County JTED Active Shooter Response Training
Since 2013, there have been over 271 school shootings in America – an average of nearly one a week. On Friday, December 22nd, 65 teachers and administrators from Pima County Joint Technical Education District (JTED) 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. JTED’s educational leadership learned and experienced the decisive advantages of proactive vs. passive response strategies via numerous live scenario drills and is now empowered to help save our children’s lives!
