(Press Release)- In partnership with Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall and the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office, Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management will be hosting the free training described below. The two programs will be presented in one four hour block.
The event will be Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 9 AM – 1 PM at the Royse City ISD Administration building. The address is 810 East Old Greenville Road, Royse City.
The training is free however we are requiring registration for each participant due to limited space. We highly encourage a minimum age of 13 due to the sensistive nature of the active shooter portion of the training. However, it is up to the parents to determine the maturity of the child and whether the material is appropriate for them.
Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) –
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.
Stop the Bleed –
Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.
We look forward to seeing you there.
