The Watertown Police will hold a training for community members interested in learning about dealing with an active shooter event.
The training features parts of the ALICE model for schools, and the Department of Homeland Security Run, Hide, Fight model for businesses, according to the Watertown Police announcement. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate (see below for more info).
“In light of recent events, the WPD feels that it is important to empower the community with response options for active shooter events should the unthinkable happen,” the announcement said.
The training will be held on Thursday, Dec. 3 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Community Room in the Watertown Police Station, 552 Main St.
