Training Description: The harrowing events at Sandy Hook Elementary School indicate the need for early childhood practitioners to be trained in preparing for and dealing with an active shooter on their premises. Of particular concern are childcare professionals, who care for young children—a special population which cannot as easily follow emergency protocol as can older children. Further, childcare practitioners ordinarily receive little or no training in responding to a violent intruder as part of their educational or professional development experiences. As such, childcare workers face a double threat: a high needs population and little (or no) preparation for how to properly respond in the event of a crisis. The workshop will provide participants with the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Counter, Evacuate) plan, which provides multiple options in the case of an active shooter. Using video, discussion, and hands-on training, participants will learn how to provide physical safety (barricading doors, breaking windows, physical takedowns and more!) in addition to the emotional safety they provide to children every day.
