Many have asked what response members of the congregation should take in the event of an active threat on campus. What should you do to increase your chances of surviving an active shooter? Chris McDonald, a 21 Year Active Duty Law Enforcement Officer, will present the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course to members of Concord on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at 10 am. While this training will focus on civilian response to an active threat at Concord, the information provided will be useful in any public location including schools, malls, workplace, etc.
The CRASE 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. The course should last approximately two hours including a question and answer session. There is no charge for the class. It is recommended that all Children's Ministry and Safety Team Volunteers attend the training but the class is open to anyone in the church. Registration is open on the website.
