Back when... Greg Crane came out to Colorado in the early stages of RO - I campaigned for years to get this excellent program implemented in our school districts. After attending a seminar in Boulder,... my two kids walked out with an increased sense of confidence which gave me peace of mind. Yet... Colorado schools refused to even consider any of it. Here, where most shootings took place... they rely on lockdown and RSO's. The foundation that RO offers is the tool our society needs in many sectors: corporations, hospitals, schools... all targets - lately movie theatres... any place where you are risk of an active shooter scenario. RO educates you how to rely on yourself in the crucial moments where you are alone - depending on your mental preparedness to survive. I recommend this program to anyone - we live in a times where training such as this will save lives - as the dependance on others is not key to save you all the time. Fabulous, professional and crucial - it will sharpen your senses, your preparedness and your confidence. See More

I sat in in this training a few weeks ago, and it was so informative. Greg is very passionate about what he does and is a great teacher. After you take this class, you will see that ALICE is absolutel...y your best option! See More

Thanks to the Manassas City Schools and MPPD for trusting in the ALICE protocols. Always grateful to hear of good outcomes. Kudos to all for acting when action ...was necessary. These stories are why we continue to do what we do.

Dear Parents,

At approximately 3:00 PM on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, a bus driver for Manassas Park City Schools observed two suspicious males armed with what appeared to be a rifle near the elementary school campus.

The Manassas Park Police were immediately contacted and MPCS security procedures were put into effect at the elementary and secondary campuses. All school personnel have participated in
A.L.i.C.E. training in cooperation with the Manassas Park Police Department (MPPD). MPCS believes this model provides our staff and students with additional response options for situations such as these.

Our students, teachers, staff and administration are to be commended for their efforts in implementing a safe and orderly process consistent with training. We appreciate how our parents responded during this crisis and allowed school officials and MPPD to protect our children.
Following an emergency situation, part of the protocol is to review our procedures and make any necessary adjustments. The administrative team met this morning to discuss ways to continue to improve the process.

Additional debriefings with the MPPD will occur within the next week.

As always, we are committed to providing a learning environment that is safe and secure. For more information regarding the A.L.i.C.E. model please consult the division website.

Dr. Bruce McDade

This is why your best move is to NOT secure in place in a building taken over by lunatic killers. Pray for these kids and their families.

We have heard a lot over the years from "experts" that ALICE type strategies and training will cause psychological harm to children. Seems even among the "experts" there is disagreement... anybody surprised?

How do we talk about shootings without traumatizing kids?

How remarkable is this guy? And it's also another example that you can jump to get away from danger and survive the fall. Just remember the 30 foot rule.

Some people jump into pools from extreme, dangerous heights as daredevilish stunts. Some are injured in the process when they miss their mark. University of Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw severely injured both of his ankles Saturday night doing just this, but the reason he leaped from...

Thanks to all of the MA ALICE instructors, the MJPOA, NEMLEC STARS team, and especially Scotty Sencabaugh, Chip Yeaton, Nancy Leesburg, and Derek Jones for all of their efforts in getting the program so accepted in their State that ALICE is mentioned in the new MA State school safety recommendations. Who new Texans and Bostonians could get along so well? Proud to call all of you friend.

Distract, Break Contact, Get Away... Our competitors in the world of school safety like to say our Counter strategies are like "close quarters combat" ... their attempt at scare tactics is boring... and frankly idiotic, showing a complete misunderstanding of the science of violence. Counter is not close-quarters combat training, it is survival skills. Just like these girls used.
Great job girls! 12 and 18 years old, and they did what they needed to do to survive:

When a man allegedly attempted to abduct a 12-year-old girl in Kearns, Utah, he wasn’t ready for the swift punch to the back of the head that he received. The punch came from the young girl’s teenage aunt, who stands only 5-feet tall. After taking a swing at...

In the wake of mass shootings from Columbine to Sandy Hook, Pittsburg public schools are practicing new ways to be prepared for a crisis.

Seattle university shooting. Students ended it as shooter was trying to reload. God Bless these brave people. Casualties are always mitigated when the event timeline is shortened by those in the scene rather than waiting for police to get to the scene. There is just no time to wait for help. I hope the "experts" don't negate these courageous acts because the students didn't follow their advice ... "don't make the gunman mad"... idiots.
