WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Moms in West Lafayette are taking how to handle active shooter situations into their own hands.
MOMS Club of West Lafayette and WLPD hosted a class on what to do in the event of an active shooter Tuesday night.
It focused on ALICE training and breaking down run, hide, fight scenarios.
A WLPD lieutenant spoke to the moms.
He explained these situations from a police officer perspective too.
Tori Chong is a mom who attended the event.
She said it's all about educating the public.
"I think as parents we can push our schools to do a lot more and at least be aware of what they are doing and not doing and what is out there," said Chong.
The goal of the class was to help these parents better understand how to protect their families and how to explain an active shooter situation to their kids, should it happen in their school.
