Alabama A&M students, faculty undergo active shooter training

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Would you know what to do in an active shooter situation?

That question was asked of students and faculty at Alabama A&M University Huntsville campus.

The ALICE active shooter training session started at 8:30 a.m. Monday and ended at noon.

ALICE training institute uses the acronym ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate.

The program aims to teach people how to survive in an active shooter situation.

Several students attending the training about why they felt it was important to attend.

"If something like that would happen here, I don't know how we could handle it," said Audriauna Roller, a graduate assistant at A&M.

"That's why I came, so I can be aware and learn what to do," said Angel Baldwin, a Resident Advisor on campus. "I can go back and tell the residents things that I learned from this event."
