Could you survive an active shooter scenario?

Would you know what to do if you found yourself in an active shooter situation? How would you respond?

To prepare community members, schools and businesses with a course of action on an active shooter episode, the Texas Department of Public Safety and Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT), will present a ‘Civilian Response Course to Active Attack Events,’ from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Monday, October 22, 2018.

Representative Nicole Collier will introduce the training program event, which will be hosted by the Everman Independent School District, at Everman Joe C. Bean High School, 1000 S. Race Street, in Everman. The community is invited to attend.

“The recent tragic high-profile mass-shooter murders in Texas, at Santa Fe High School and at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, as well as the massacre of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, are daily reminders that we are – we must – remain vigilant of our surroundings,” said Representative Collier. “That is the critical reason why I asked DPS to bring the training to Everman ISD. This CRASE training program offers the community a much-needed plan of action in the event of a crisis situation.”

Participants in the training will learn how to rapidly respond to critical, active threat conditions as ‘hiding and hoping’ are not the best alternatives to keeping you safe. The course will also share easy-to-remember strategies, which underscore the core of the program’s ‘Avoid, Deny, Defend’ approach.

“Safety is our No. 1 priority. As we know, crisis situations occur often in our society. The CRASE training will increase public awareness on how to respond when faced with a crisis situation,” said Dr. Curtis Amos, Everman ISD superintendent. “The training will teach strategies and offer guidance on how best to respond when faced with life-threatening issues. It is imperative that the community is provided with life-saving strategies, because as you know, a life is precious.”
