The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) will offer the Civilian Response and Casualty Care (CRCC) course at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church on Saturday, Dec. 17 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.
This training, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend / Run, Hide, Fight strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. This course combines the civilian response with the Stop the Bleed Campaign, which empowers civilians to provide life-saving medical aid before first responders ever arrive.
Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options and basic medical intervention to reduce preventable causes of death.
Who should attend? This training is being offered to responsibly concerned citizens. Partial In-service Credit (PIC) for Virginia law enforcement officers, campus security officers and school security officers will be available. Check-in for training will begin 30 minutes prior to session start time.
There is no fee to attend this training. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact Lori.Walters@dcjs.virginia.gov.
