C.R.A.S.H. (Citizen's Response to Active Shooter and Hazards)
CBLTAC's C.R.A.S.H. seminar is four hours (longer if CBLTAC goes on-site and conducts a security assessment that is not part of the classroom seminar).
The seminar, which we hope will always be precluded by "Impulse Control" will cover:
• The citizen's psycho-physical response to acute stress in a developing emergency situation to minimize shock/surprise if/when it happens.
• The specific decision process of consciously choosing to Fight, Flight or Freeze (based upon the training CBLTAC has been presenting internationally since 2004).
• Specific instruction in fighting a threat, escaping a threat, or sheltering in place.
• Multiple alert systems and how to best disseminate vital information to colleagues and responding emergency services.
The seminar covers active shooter scenarios, workplace violence, bomb threats, fires, and other potential emergencies that must be addressed to minimize victims and potential post stress trauma as well as assist responding public services.
It has been written for all citizens, from all job spectrums, but with great respect and focus to those professionals who are unarmed public servants, government agencies, and/or interact with the public regularly.
Lastly, it covers the extremely important "after", including the psychological process of dealing with post incident stress and specific avenues for employees to seek help.
For single agency seminars, C.R.A.S.H. seminars will begin with a consultation with the organization's human resource department to ensure the correct avenues of seeking help are presented. Further, CBLTAC will include links to stress resources on the C.R.A.S.H. page.
C.R.A.S.H. is being developed to fill the vacuum that exists in current "active shooter" training programs. In most cases, the training involves responding law enforcement agents; however, in many cases, law enforcement's response will be too late at the immediate scene.
C.R.A.S.H. serves to protect and preserve the lives and psychological health of those who will be in danger with little to no immediate support in a major emergency.
Any questions about the training, specific suggestions or requests from administrators, or any other inquiries can be directed to admin@CBLTAC.us.
