Librarians Train For Gun Crisis

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) -  Librarians from all across the state will be at Lansing Community College's West Campus today to be trained on how to handle an "active shooter" situation.

In the aftermath of the mass shootings in Aurora Colorado, New town, Connecticut, Virginia Tech and just recently the shooting at Fort Hood, police are stressing more than ever to have some form of counter shooter strategy training.

And today hundreds of Michigan librarians will undergo a day long training in active shooter preparedness and response with the Michigan State Police.

It's happening from 9:30 to 3:30.

The staff will be trained in "A.L.I.CE" or alice, a popular education technique that stands for "Alert Lockdown Inform Counter and Evacuate."

All librarians are welcome to attend the training.

Former chief of police and current senior director of risk management Mark Alley will also present on crisis communication.
