Sponsored by: Diana Fox
Speaker(s): Sgt. Paul Owens from the CWRU Police Department
Date & Time: Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015 from Noon to 1:30 p.m.
We live and work in a world where school shootings and violence have unfortunately become more common. It is our duty as faculty, staff, and students to be more diligent and prepared.
Several years ago, the Case Western Reserve University Police Department put together a program that teaches survival strategies that will save lives in the event of an active shooter situation. The program called ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) has the following philosophy:
- To utilize technology and information in ways that allow staff and students to make informed decisions
To remove as many people as possible from the DANGER zone to minimize targets of opportunity
To provide realistic training so that those “stuck” in the CRISIS Zone, if confronted by a madman or terrorist, have options available to them to enhance their chances of surviving this violent encounter
Faculty, Staff and Students are invited to participate.
This event is free and is open to members of the WSOM community. LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED.
