Active Shooter Training For Civilians - CRASE


By Roger Dickey
Houston County Emergency Manager & Fire Marshal

We seem to be reminded all too often that we live in a dangerous world. The horrific church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas November 5th where 26 people tragically lost their life, and more recently, the shooting near an elementary school in California are just two of many recent events that remind us of the dangers that surround us. With these recent events in mind, this is a good time to do all we can to learn how to better protect ourselves. There are several instructors right here in Houston County that will come to your church, business or to any interested group and present the Civilian Response To Active Shooter Events (CRASE) class. The information presented is very beneficial and provides useful information you can use, no matter where you are, when danger presents itself. The training is free and the presentation takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. To schedule a class, contact the Houston County Office of Emergency Management at (936) 544 - 7175 or Houston County Sheriff's Department at (936) 544-2862. You may also call Houston County Fire Marshal / EMC Roger Dickey at (936) 222-2268 or DA Investigator Randy Hargrove at (936) 222-1264.
