Inspired by the Columbine shooting tragedy, Greg
Crane wanted to create an emergency program for his wife's school. Now he's in
Sylvania teaching other how to become instructors of the program.
The ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter,
Evacuate) program is for administrators, and trains them on how to handle an
emergency situation, such as a school shooting.
"I never have understood why if there's a fire
in the building, we tell people to get out, but if there's a shooter in the
building, we tell them to stay in," said Crane, president of Response Options.
He said that makes it too easy for a violent
offender to operate.
Since the ALICE program was created 10 years ago
by Crane and some of his friends, it has reached more than 30 states and more
than 400 education systems. Close to two
million students have been trained in the program. But Crane says ALICE is not
a procedure, it's a concept in strategies.
"It's not about fighting back," he explained. "We
don't teach any fighting strategies. We teach counter strategies. Strategies
that make his mission to shoot us accurately much more difficult than what I
had been previously taught, to sit still and be passive and static. That does
not make people a harder target, it makes them as easy a target as possible."
More than 80 people attended Crane's instructor
training and are considering bring the ALICE training to their schools.
Mike Huber is an elementary school teacher in
Michigan who came to evaluate the program. He said it was eye-opening.
"We have to be proactive no matter what decision
we make, with our without ALICE," Huber said. "We have to do something. So that's
why we're here."
The instructor program is a 16-hour training and
