The Office of Security has fully-trained ALICE Instructors to help you and your staff prepare for a hostile intruder. ALICE is the leading training solution that increases an organization's and individual's odds of survival during a violent intruder event.
ALICE, which stands for ALERT, LOCKDOWN, INFORM, COUNTER and EVACUATE, is a post-Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook strategy that goes beyond the conventional Run, Fight, Hide instruction.
