Local congregations learn ways to respond to active shooter situations
August 29, 2018
Ten members and two pastors from three churches in Chinook learned some basic ways to deal with an active shooter situation. The short course was taught by Blaine County Undersheriff Frank Billmayer and Sheriff's Deputy Chris Adair. Billmayer and Adair have taught a similar program to several schools, local government agencies and businesses in the county. ALICE instructor training was first offered locally in the spring of 2017. Billmayer said, "We've done parts of the ALICE training about eight or nine times in the county, this is the first time specifically for churches."
