The Morton County Sheriff’s office has been teaching Active Shooter Training Classes for all Morton County Schools this past month.

Tonight they offered a shorter version of the class for parents at New Salem High School.

The ALICE program which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate has been informing students and teachers on what to do when there is an active shooter.

From 5 to 7 tonight the Morton County Sheriffs Office expanded their training to parents.
Morton County has been teaching 3 hour classes on what ALICE exactly is, showing them how to barricade doors, and point out the best places to evacuate.

New Salem High School says its important to relay that same information to parents. Teacher and parent,Tyler Schau, says he learned a lot of new information from the meeting.

“For years we have been taught to shelter in place, lock the door, shut the lights off, huddle in the corner of a room.This training says that’s probably not the best option to have everyone huddled in one area. It’s more of a proactive approach to evacuate if possible,” says Schau.

Morton County officer, Josh Selle, says an active school shooting only averages 3 to 5 minutes. He says by instructing students, teachers, and parents they are potentially able to save lives.
