Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

With all of the Active shooter events happening across the world, it only makes sense to be prepared. Sign up and receive FREE training from Patrol and SWAT Deputies, who are passionate about what it takes to keep you safe!

Law enforcement officers and agencies are frequently requested by schools, businesses, and community members for direction and presentations on what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend 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, the role of professional guardians, civilian response options, medical issues and drills.

This four-hour training is being offered to schools, colleges, businesses, hospitals and places of worship.

Wooden Poles on Jewett

John Kirkpatrick was able to get the following information:

I talked with Gary Wilfong with the City and street lights.   Cobra Head lights are being installed on Jewett and the streets just east of Jewett on the wooden poles that have been put up. (Cobra lights are what are on Karl Rd)

We are also checking whether more of these lights are planned for anywhere in this area.  The Civic Assoc. continues to support and work toward more of the decorative street lights for Sharon Woods (lights that are on Sharon Woods Blvd).
