Town of Wake Forest News

The Wake Forest Police Department will sponsor a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) class on Tuesday, Aug. 14, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Wake Forest Town Hall Ground Floor Meeting Room, 301 S. Brooks St. The meeting room is most easily accessed via Town Hall’s Taylor Street entrance.

Led by Wake Forest Police Lt. L. Danforth, the session will teach participants what to do if confronted with an active shooter event.

Designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University, the class will provide strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics will include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues and considerations for conducting drills.

There is no cost to participate, but registration is required at www.wakeforestnc.gov/civilian-response-to-active-shooter-events.aspx. Class size is limited to the first 25 people to register.
