MARTINS FERRY, Ohio --

The Martins Ferry Police Department visited Martins Ferry High School, Middle School and Elementary School on Monday to teach the staff the A.L.I.C.E. program.

A.L.I.C.E. is a program designed to increase a person's chances of surviving an active shooter situation on campus. It stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, and escape.

Teachers at Martins Ferry High School said they've never done the A.L.I.C.E. training before and it's very intense.

Paul Matuska, coach and biology teacher, said, "We are in charge of the kids and we have to make sure that we do everything we can to keep them safe. Of course, we have always done that and the best that we can, and we are always learning like this. "

Matuska said the main priority is to keep the students safe.
