[ARCHIVED] C.R.A.S.E. & Stop the Bleed

CRASE-Stop-the-Bleed-Web

April 4 class cancelled


The Schertz Police Department & Schertz Emergency Medical Services are joining together to offer special Civilian Response Active Shooter Event (C.R.A.S.E.) & Stop the Bleed classes open to the general public. Classes will be held in the EMS Training Room located at 1400 Schertz Parkway Bldg. 7. 

In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these events is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities’ public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats. Research has shown, however, that many of the mass attacks, or active attack events, 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, preplanned response options for civilians at the scene of the attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes.

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. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills.

Through our Stop the Bleed course, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively. The person next to a bleeding victim may be the one who’s most likely to save him or her. Take the course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs. Stop the Bleed. Save a Life!

2020 Class Dates:

February 29
April 4 (Cancelled)
June 13
August 29
October 17
December 5

To register, go to bleedingcontrol.org or call Schertz EMS at (210) 619-1410.
