Huron Township police visited St. Stephen Catholic School in New Boston on Monday to conduct safety training with staff members.
The staff underwent ALICE training—an acronym that stands for alert, lockdown, information, counter, evacuate.
“Nothing is more important than working together to keep our students safe. As a Public Safety Department, we have invested heavily in safety training by making sure we have our staff trained to train both internally and externally. St. Stephens is such an important part of our community and we are proud to continue our partnership with them,” said Everette Robbins, Huron Township director of public safety.
Sgt. Kenneth Hickman and Officer Phil Czernik visited the school to conduct the training.
“They were very helpful in giving the 21 attendees basic information and analysis of the best procedures to follow in these critical situations. We went room to room – including the Activity Center (K classroom, preschool classroom, cafeteria, and gym) – and talked about lockdown and evacuation procedures, additional needs/items for each room, and other plan related information,” said Patrick Bevier, principal at St. Stephen School.
