New Training Alert: Active Shooter Response Training (Video for Students)

Posted by Rachael Ballard Filed under: Crisis Response, Programs

PublicSchoolWORKS has added a new safety video to its training catalog. The video, Active Shooter Response Training (Video for Students), covers the new active shooter training model ALICE: Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. This new training encourages students and teachers to think strategically and be proactive should a shooting occur. Traditionally, training for active shooter situations had consisted of finding shelter and waiting for authorities to arrive. However, studies have shown that solely using this response may actually increase the number of causalities.

One of the major benefits of the PSW Safety Training System is that it will alert staff when training must be completed. Rockwood School District’s Director of Human Resources, Katie Reboulet, uses the system to ensure that her staff members complete their assigned training courses on time and the system automatically notifies her who has not completed training.

“Within one week of the compliance due date, all of our staff had completed their training,” said Reboulet. “The best thing is that we can now easily ensure that our employees have completed the training. The difference between this automated system and our former paper-based one is night and day.”
