FHG Library 4th Floor Closure for ALICE Training

by Bridget Voltz on 2022-08-10T15:19:27-04:00 | Comments



The 4th floor of the FHG Library will be closed from 9am-1pm on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, & Wednesday, August 17, 2022, for the West Chester University Police’s ALICE training.

About ALICE:

ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) is an options-based strategy to survive violent critical incidents. These incidents include persons with guns, knives, blunt objects, vehicles, or anything else that could be used as a weapon. Plans can fail. That's why West Chester University Police teach an options-based strategy. Instead of handing every person a cookie-cutter plan to shut off the lights and hide in a corner, ALICE offers each person choices to have at their disposal if the unthinkable occurs.

 Watch this video to hear what others around the country have said about their experience with ALICE.

Thank you for your understanding.
