Active Shooter Class
Redmond Police Officers teach the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) model to help survive an active shooter event.
The ALICE program is designed to give a person or group of people who may find themselves in a violent, life-threatening situation some mental and physical tools that could play a vital role in their survival. The program is designed so that anybody can employ the strategies: young, old, male, female – it does not matter. One does not have to be police or military-trained in order to survive a violent encounter. They do need to have a frame of reference from which to draw when making life saving decisions under extreme pressure, much like preparing for a fire, tornado or earthquake.
Remember, there are no guarantees in an active shooter/violent intruder situation, but just as in most other emergency situations the more you prepare, the better your chances of survival.
Fraud Prevention Class
Identity theft is a growing concern today with approximately 7 percent of US residents age 16 and older falling victim to this crime trend. Our Fraud Prevention class offers citizens suggestions and tips to prevent identity theft and fraud.
