UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's to Bring Active Shooter Training to Siouxland
Sioux City, IA--UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s and the ALICE
Training Institute have teamed up to bring ALICE Instructor Training to St.
Luke’s on Thursday, October 1 and Friday, October 2. This two day instructor
course is designed to teach proactive survival strategies for violent intruder
or active shooter incidents. The goal of the ALICE program is to provide
individuals with survival-enhancing options for those critical moments in the gap
between when a violent situation begins and when law enforcement arrives on
scene. The registration fee for this training is $595 per person and can be
completed online at www.alicetraining.com.
ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform,
Counter, and Evacuate and is a useful strategy for everyone: law enforcement,
schools, universities, hospitals, businesses, and places of worship. Completing
the ALICE Instructor Training course provides individuals with certification in
ALICE Training and allows them the opportunity to bring ALICE strategies back
to their places of work. Additionally, registrants will gain access to
exclusive ALICE resources.
ALICE is in line with recommendations from the
U.S. Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and
the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
