C.R.A.S.E.

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (C.R.A.S.E.) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness.  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, preplanned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes.
