NBPD, NBFD, Christus Santa Rosa Host ‘Active Shooter,’ ‘Stop the Bleed’ Training
Prevent. Prepare. React.
New Braunfels Police and Fire Departments and Christus Santa Rosa-New Braunfels will train “civilians” how to react to an active shooter and provide first aid to bleeding victims at a free community event from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11 at Canyon High School, 1510 I-35, New Braunfels.
The training is open to the general public and includes Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training and a Stop the Bleed course, recommended for mature audiences due to the graphic nature of content included in the presentation.
Avoid/Deny/Defend: Learn what to expect and how to handle yourself during an active-shooter event. Meet with trained NBPD personnel to examine recent mass-shooting events like Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas, and the lessons learned from these incidents.
The program was developed by Texas State University’s Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training program, and is used nationwide to provide residents, businesses and organizations with tools to help them prepare for the possibility of a mass-shooting 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. Victims can die from uncontrolled bleeding within five to 10 minutes.
Learn proper bleeding-control techniques including how to use hands, dressings and tourniquets.
BleedingControl.org is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus and contains diagrams, news, videos and other resources contributed by a variety of other private and nonprofit partners to help citizens prepare for the unexpected.
