Members of the Kent community are invited to attend an informational
meeting on Monday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. at Theodore Roosevelt High School
auditorium to learn about ALICE, a new school safety strategy, which will roll out this year.
ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate, is an alternate crisis management program used in schools, colleges and universities.
A newly-formed Community Partnership Team, which includes representatives from the Kent police, fire and public safety departments, will be introduced. Lt. Joe Hendry of Kent State University Department of Public Safety will discuss the ALICE system, which helps prepare to respond in emergency situations.
Attendees will hear about the school district’s plan to implement ALICE training for Kent City School’s staff and students, as well as the process to revise the district’s emergency response plan.
