CRASE- Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events


CRSC , Free

Presented by the Maryland State Police and one of MSP’s lead Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) Instructors.

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course is designed and built on an “avoid, deny and defend” strategy developed by Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT). The course 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, medical issues and considerations for conducting drills.

Studies have shown that it is the initial actions taken by people immersed in an active shooter event  have the greatest impact on their survival. CRASE arms people with the information they need to know to protect themselves and others around them in those crucial first 3 minutes, should they be caught in a critical incident. This presentation is an overview of the body’s disaster response system, how it affects decision-making during high-stress incidents, and how to employ the avoid-deny-defend principles to counter an active assailant. Since February of 2016, the Maryland State Police has delivered the CRASE program to over 10,000 citizens in person in both public and private sector organizations.
