Schools, houses of worship, civilians, and public and private businesses frequently request direction and presentations on what action they should be taking if they are caught in an active shooter situation. The Quincy Police Department offers a free course that provides pre-planned response options should employees find themselves faced with a similar situation. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy, 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, what can be expected from the police response, medical issues, and techniques to assist in surviving an active shooter / critical incident.
Our instructors have taught over 50 classes at a wide variety of institutions throughout the city. This course typically runs approx. two hours and can be tailored to your organization.
