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. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues (Stop the Bleed), and considerations for conducting drills.
In a STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll learn three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. These three techniques will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life.
CRASE training lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. Stop the Bleed training lasts 1 to 1.5 hours. CRASE and Stop the Bleed scheduled in one session would last approximately 3 hours.
There is no cost associated with CRASE or Stop the Bleed training.
