Course introduction

In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these sudden incidents is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats and the sequence of events that follow them. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attacks, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on the scene. Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such an event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active attack event is three minutes. Without effective, pre-planned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes.

STOP THE BLEED

is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) is built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD)/Run, Hide, Fight strategy. Instructors Kevin Sharp and Jeffrey Canvasser provide participants with the necessary tools and skills to be able to successfully deploy the Civilian Response program in almost any situation. The curriculum can be customized according to a group’s needs, requirements, and time constraints. The Avoid, Deny, Defend/Run, Hide, Fight strategy is practical and easily applied in schools, businesses, civic or faith-based organizations, hospitals, and other settings.
