What is CRASE?
The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training organization (ALERRT) made up of representatives from the Texas State University, the San Marcos Police Department, and the Hays County Sheriff’s Office came into existence as a direct result of the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999. This incident demonstrated a need for increased training for first responders and civilians alike in active shooter response. Since its inception in 2002, the ALERRT organization has become a national leader in civilian response to active shooter events (CRASE) training. In 2013 the FBI adopted their model and began providing “train the trainer” courses nationwide for law enforcement personnel to become certified instructors to facilitate the delivery of this valuable program to the public.
The CRASE program is designed around the simple acronym ADD which stands for AVOID, DENY, and DEFEND. Topics include: history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, considerations for conducting drills, learn how to control the body’s physiological response to stressful situations, and more.
