The Springdale Police Department is offering training for the general public on how to survive a workplace or school shooting.
There are two classes scheduled; one on March 21st and another on March 28th at the Jones Center for Families in room 226. Each class starts at 1:00 pm and ends at 4:00 pm.
According to Police, the class will provide participants with the mental and physical tactics needed to increase the chances of surviving a violent incident at a workplace, school or other public institution.
They'll cover a wide range of topics including: a history and analysis of active shooter incidents, A.L.I.C.E. (alert, lock-down, inform counter and evacuate) strategies to enhance institutional lock-down plans, and police response, preparing people for what to expect when officers arrive.
Police say the class will serve to benefit administrators, employees, principals, teachers, security officers and anyone else interested in learning these survival techniques.
The class is free, but seating is limited.
To register or to receive more information, contact Sergeant Robert Sanchez at email@example.com.
