Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events training Feb. 21

Would you know what to do if you ever found yourself in an active shooter situation?

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT). The course provides strategies and guidance for surviving an active shooter event.

CRASE training will be offered to Fort Worth residents at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at Western Hills United Methodist Church, 2820 Laredo Dr.

This potentially lifesaving program is open to the public and will address what individuals need to know to look out for their safety. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, the role of professional guardians, civilian response options and demonstrates examples of things to do to stay safe in these situations.

There is no charge to attend, but attendees should register to ensure seating. Additional CRASE sessions will be offered throughout the year.

Please note: the presentation contains realistic material and reenactments that some attendees may find graphic in nature. Discretion for sensitive audiences is advised.
