Active Shooter Response Training
The increasing frequency and lethality of active shooter events in the United States has many people worried about and afraid of the phenomena; studies of previous events show that education and preparation can greatly increase survivability. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) in 2004, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, what to expect when police arrive and medical issues, among others. The training seeks to arm you with knowledge and skills designed to encourage appropriate actions and help you survive, should you face an active shooter event.
