This class is for informational purposes only and will not include certification. All Medical Center Health System employees and community members are invited to attend.

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, provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Civilians who find themselves embroiled in such events must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. Without effective training many victims can be seriously injured or killed.

The Stop the Bleed course prepares you to respond to emergencies where there is massive bleeding from an injury. Massive uncontrolled bleeding from any cause can result in death in 5 to 10 minutes. However, anyone can act as an immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do to stop life-threatening bleeding. The class will go over proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use your hands, dressings, and tourniquets to control life-threatening bleeding.
