SUSQUEHANNA CONFERENCE ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING VIDEO
After the recent mass shooter events in locations around the country and the world, it has become all the more important to be prepared for situations in your local congregations. In cooperation with the Harrisburg Police Department, the Communications Ministry of the Susquehanna Conference has produced an Active Shooter Training video for you to share with your congregations. A special thanks to Deputy Chief Deric Moody for coordination and to Lt. Terry Wealand, Det. Kirk Aldridge, and Ofc. Mark Hall for their help in presenting this material.
Please also find the PowerPoint slides attached with areas to take notes.

THE VALUE OF ALICE TRAINING
Recognizing the threat and acknowledging the need to be prepared, Linglestown Life (Harrisburg District) has engaged a number of steps to be proactive for our community of faith. This has included training through the South Central PA Emergency Task Force - Congregation Security Workshop; revising and updating our Emergency Response Plan for the church and nursery school; and engaging the services of ALICE Training Institute to train and equip our staff and volunteers.
That's the value of ALICE. ALICE teaches participants a proactive, options-based plan for civilian response to a violent critical incident. ALICE authorizes and empowers individuals to utilize human action, building infrastructure, and communication options to increase their chance of survival. Simply put, ALICE's mission is to save more lives. Churches wanting to learn more about the ALICE Training programs can explore their website
