The training is free however registration is required for each participant due to limited space.

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) - 

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event.

Stop the Bleed - 

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.

Basic First Aid - 

Designed to help non-medical professionals provide assistance in times of crisis, this basic first aid instruction allows you to gain an understanding of first aid best practices for a wide range of conditions.
