Police and Fire to Offer Active Shooter and Stop the Bleed Training

Stop the Bleed web

James City County’s Police and Fire Departments are hosting two new training sessions for the community:

CRASE (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events) provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. CRASE was designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004.

Stop the Bleed provides strategies, guidance and practical skills to handle a trauma related bleeding situation from an active shooter or everyday life. Stop the Bleed was created after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012.

The two courses are designed to bridge the gap and empower citizens to make a difference. The courses can be taken together or separately and each will last approximately 2 hours with a break in between. There is no charge for attendance and the courses are available to anyone age 16 or older.The training scheduled for November is full. Watch for more classes soon. For more information, contact Assistant Fire Marshal Michelle Toutaint at 757-565-7607.

Each course can be modified for a business or organization to meet their needs as well and can be delivered anywhere and delivered upon request. For more information, call 757-565-7607.
