Stop the Bleed web

James City County’s Fire and Police Departments are hosting two CRASE (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events) training sessions followed by a Stop the Bleed training sessions on Saturday, April 11 and Saturday, May 2. Both sessions are held from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the Fire Training Center, 5077 John Tyler Highway.

There is no charge for attendance and the course is available to anyone age 14 or older. Registration is available online.

CRASE (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events) provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. CRASE was designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004.

Stop the Bleed provides strategies, guidance and practical skills to handle a trauma related bleeding situation from an active shooter or everyday life. Stop the Bleed was created after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012.

Each course can be modified for a business or organization to meet their needs as well and can be delivered anywhere and delivered upon request. For more information, call Assistant Fire Marshal Michelle Toutaint at 757-565-7607.
