People Inc. Hosts Active Shooter Response Training Instructor Course through ALICE Training Institute

Training provides education and proactive approaches to violent intruder events

What: ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Active Shooter Response Training Instructor Course

When: Wednesday, April 26, 2017; key times for visuals/interviews: 1:30 to 4 p.m. 

Where: People Inc. Satellite Office, 280 Spindrift Drive, Williamsville

ALICE is a set of proactive, options-based strategies that increase a person’s chance of survival during a violent intruder or active shooter event. The training course is designed to teach law enforcement, as well as school, church, hospital, workplace administrators and employees skills and strategies that bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and when law enforcement arrives. 

As a health and human services industry leader, People Inc. is one of the first agencies in New York state to bring this cutting-edge training to its employees and will be one of the first hosts of a Train the Trainer Program in the Western New York area. “People Inc. is proud to partner with the ALICE Training Institute, providing this valuable instruction to our staff and other organizations throughout the area,” said People Inc. Associate Vice President and Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Thomas Ess.

The 30 trainees in attendance are members of the Developmental Disabilities Alliance of Western New York, local law enforcement, local school districts, People Inc. staff and several out-of-state for-profit companies. Attendees will become knowledgeable in concepts, statistics and information about active shooter situations and why the ALICE training is effective; experience live scenario drills that compare passive vs. active responses; and learn the strategies needed to become an effective ALICE instructor for their own organization. 

ALICE is the nation’s first training program for citizens to increase their survival chances and save lives, if faced with a violent intruder. The ALICE Training Institute has trained thousands of police departments, K-12 school districts, higher education, businesses, hospitals and houses of worship in the ALICE protocols over the last 15 years. The Institute is located in Medina, Ohio.

People Inc. provides programs and services to more than 12,500 people with special needs, their families and seniors throughout Western New York and Rochester. Since 1970, People Inc. has assisted individuals to achieve greater degrees of independence and productivity.
