School District New Approach to Attacks

Tegan Hanlon: The Anchorage School District is using a new approach to train students, teachers how to respond to attacks

 

 

What does ALICE stand for?

A – Alert: Sound an alarm using plain and specific language to alert others to the danger.

L – Lockdown: Move to a secure location, lock the door and take action to better barricade the room and begin preparing for other strategies if needed, such as evacuate or, as a last resort counter.

I – Inform: Share the violent intruder’s location and direction as often as possible using any means necessary (such as the intercom, handheld radios, text, cell phone or other means) so that everyone on site has access to the information. The goal is that knowledge is the key to survival.

C – Counter: This is a last resort.  Interrupt the physical act of the violent intruder by making noise or other distraction with the intent of reducing the intruder’s ability to execute his/her plan. This could mean throwing available objects to hinder the intruder’s aim. This is a last resort when the violent intruder is in the immediate vicinity and individuals are unable to escape.

E – Evacuate: When it is safe to do so, remove yourself from the danger zone. The goal is to get as many people away from the situation as possible. ALICE training provides techniques for safer and more strategic evacuations that will make the need to counter less likely. Individuals are encouraged to always evacuate when possible.

The strategies do not need to be completed in order and should not be considered a checklist. Staff and students will rely on the information at hand and their own judgment to determine the safest course of action.

 

The school district is holding an informational meeting on ALICE at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the ASD Education Center, 5530 E. Northern Lights Boulevard.

Additional communication will be made with parents when the training is scheduled to take place in their child’s school.

The ALICE Training Institute response was vetted by the Anchorage Police Department, Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson and is in use in other school districts throughout the state.

San Francisco, 1927. "Stutz Vertical Eight with Safety Chassis." The so-called "Safety Stutz" featured four-wheel hydraulic brakes and wire-reinforced, supposedly shatterproof glass -- just the thing for cruising in the rain on bald tires. 5x7 glass negative by Christopher Helin.

Fishing on the Koyukuk River August 27, 2016

My relatives from Huslia, Vivian Henry and Shandara Swatling, shared their stories of net fishing along the Koyukuk River. They have generously agreed to share their stories and a few pictures on the Athabascan Woman Blog.

Great Tabouleh. Even Greater Hospitality at Au Vieux Cedre
We were wandering down the street from the Musée Cluny to the Louvre when we came across this Lebanese restaurant.  I asked for some tabouleh and he put it into a big bowl for us to share.

It's 1942 and we're back in San Francisco for another look at one of the many fine establishments made even finer by the installation of Buckley Music System's "Music Box." The eatery is Andy Wong's "Fair Famous" Mission Trails Restaurant, Harvey Lum, manager, at 500 Sutter Street. Close your eyes and you can practically hear Padre tolling the mission bell while the brothers pound out their tortillas. 8x10 inch acetate negative, photographer unknown.
