The University of Toledo continuously strives to help ensure the safety of its constituents, and next Monday it will be even easier for everyone to get involved.

ALICE logoFrom 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, March 30, in Health and Human Services Building Room 1711, the Criminal Justice Society will host a free ALICE training session. ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate, is a program designed to prepare people for an active shooter situation.

“ALICE shows you what to do if there is an active shooter on campus, but these skills can be used anywhere — a movie theater, a mall, any place really,” said Dr. Wendi Goodlin-Fahncke, UT assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice, Social Work and Legal Specialties.

No registration is needed for the training session, which is open to all UT faculty, staff and students, and will be led by two UT police officers who are certified ALICE trainers.

Those who can’t attend the March 30 session can get information from the ALICE website at alicetraining.com or schedule their own presentation by emailing ALICE@utoledo.edu.
