Where: Hampton Township Community Center
When: Sunday, July 22, 2018
Time: 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
- Do you feel prepared to respond if you find yourself in an active shooter incident?
- Do you know what action you can take that would dramatically increase your chance of survival?
- Do you know how to respond to an active shooter in a movie theater, shopping mall, concert, school campus, place of employment or any other public place?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then you should sign up for the Active Shooter Response Training sponsored by the Hampton Township Police Department and Hampton Township School District (training is free, but space is limited)
The ALICE training and exercises will teach participants not only an understanding of the threats faced, but also the risks and options available in active shooter incidents. ALICE is a nationally recognized program taught by certified instructors. ALICE Training has been implemented since 2015 in the Hampton Township School District and is now being offered to all residents of Hampton Township free of cost. The program will be instructed by Chief Thomas Vulakovich, Officer Aaron Zola from the Hampton Township Police Department and Dr. Rebecca Cunningham, the Assistant Superintendent of the Hampton Township School District. All three are certified instructors for the ALICE Training.
The ALICE training consists of two parts. The first part of the instruction will be classroom. The second part of the instruction will practice the skills that were learned in the classroom by engaging in various scenarios. It is suggested, but not necessary, for participants to engage in both aspects of the training. It is recommended that anyone who is pregnant or has existing injuries or physical disabilities not participate in the active shooter exercises since it will require physical exertion. These individuals are invited to observe the physical scenarios from a safe distance.
Please join us for a 4-hour class in which you will learn:
- Run, hide, fight
- ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate)
- The difference between Shelter-in-Place and Lockdown
- How to properly lockdown and secure a room
- How to counter an active shooter’s aggression
All attendees will be required to sign a “Release of Liability Waiver” in order to participate in the program (release form can be found at the bottom of the online registration form)
Registration for the ALICE training is FREE – just complete the online registration . If you have any further questions, please contact Thomas Vulakovich, Chief of Police, Hampton Township, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 412-486-0400, Ext. 322.
