Lightbulb Active Shooter training

As part of our never ending staff training activities, we decided that our small rural hospital staff needed training about responding to the crisis of an active shooter. A safe hospital for staff and patients is our highest priority. We invited a regional expert on active shooter training to conduct a series of training programs for our staff. The senior director level staff went off site for an afternoon to engage in interactive training with some exciting hands on experience. Officer Weaver used several training films and demonstrations to educate us. He used a detailed analysis of the VT college shooting and a program developed by Auburn University to show us what to do and what not to do. The program was called A.L.I.C.E. The training was so well received by the staff and there was a blurb about it in our local newspaper.

Here are a few pics I took of Officer Weaver during one of the sessions and one with Officer Weaver and me.

So why did I post this on a Kimber forum. Well, when I asked Officer Weaver about his duty pistol, he replied quickly, "Its a Kimber!" We talked about Kimbers afterwards.

A.L.I.C.E. is good training.

You don't see too many 1911s in our area but if you work your way down to Texas you see more and more.
