ADEM has followed the FBI in adopting the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) system as the response methodology of choice in responding to active shooter events (ASEs). The following link has more information on the ALERRT system: http://alerrt.org/
Utilizing Homeland Security Grant Funding ADEM has purchased an ALERRT certified training kit. The kit consists of simunitions weapons, safety gear, audio/visual equipment (for the classroom portion) and door breaching tools. This kit is available for any law enforcement agency in the state to use for training or exercise purposes. While the kit has been assembled to instruct the ALERRT system it is available for training any methods that a law enforcement agency chooses to practice.
