During the presentation, participants will engage in simulations and exercises designed to increase their understanding of situational awareness.

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training provides individuals from all walks of life with proven defense/survival strategies they can employ in order to mitigate/survive violent incidents. This session will cover both history of incidents in the US, as well as disaster response mindset strategies that will prepare participants to not only survive, but avoid, violent attacks.   

Active threat Scenario (3:00–4:30 p.m.)

During this exercise participants will gain an understanding of what occurs during an active threat, as well as an introduction to the emergency procedures necessary to respond to and manage an emergency in real time. Participants will be engaged throughout the simulation to identify, with the help of the facilitator, the policies, procedures, and relationships a community organization needs to survive and recover from most critical incidents.
