    Instructor Certification to Ponca City

           Ponca City Public Schools Providing ALICE Training Instructor Certification to Ponca City #2 Ponca City Public Schools Providing ALICE Training Instructor Certification to Ponca City #1

    The PCPS and the ALICE Training Institute teamed up to bring ALICE Training Instructor Certification to Ponca City. The two-day training was held at the Central Administration Building and included participants from many different organizations from Oklahoma and Kansas.

    The goal of the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuation) program is to provide individuals with proactive, survival-enhancing options for critical moments in the gap between when a violent situation begins and law enforcement arrives on the scene. The national average for police response time is 6-10 minute, which makes the people in the room the first responders!   The full article is attached.
