Course Description:

Law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs  and agencies are frequently requested by schools, businesses, and community members for direction and presentations on what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) 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. Participants in this four (4) hour Train-the-Trainer course will receive access to a manual and PowerPoint presentation suitable for use in their own presentations.


Class Size: 100 students

Course Description:

This session of the Active Shooter Incident Management How To series focuses on the toughest jobs in the management of an Active Shooter Event. The law enforcement Tactical Group Supervisor (a.k.a. 5th Man) owns everything in the Hot and Warm Zones, assigns Contact Teams their task and purpose, and coordinates movement of Rescue Task Forces with Triage to rescue injured. The Triage Group Supervisor manages the Rescue Task Forces, tracks the number/severity/location of injured, and coordinates evacuation to ambulances with the Transport Group Supervisor. These three individuals must work seamlessly together to insure rapid neutralization of the threat and transport of the injured. This session dives into the role of each function along with common challenges and strategies for success. Included are hands-on drills with participants in small groups exercising the Tactical, Triage, and Transport roles. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn and practice these essential roles in training before you may have to do it for real!



Class Size: 100 students

Course Description:

Simply put, Bleeding Control saves lives. We should have a public access bleeding control kit everywhere that there is an AED, and we need to take the time to train the public to use the equipment properly.  Through my presentation of The American College of Surgeons “Stop The Bleed” course my students will learn the background of the Stop The Bleed program and The Hartford Consensus, as well history surrounding preventable field deaths.  Students will learn to identify life-threatening hemorrhage, to differentiate between and compressible and non-compressible wound, ultimately gaining the decision making capability to decide on treatment modality for the injury.  During the class, we will discuss the different types of tourniquets and hemostatic agents available in the field today, along with the indications and contraindications of each.  After taking this class, the students will be able to apply with BleedingControl.org for instructor status, which will enable them to teach others in their department and the public at large.  This course will include lecture time and hands-on skill stations.


Class Size: 50 students

Course Description:
