Chief Terrence Green is announcing the second quarter of the year schedule for the free monthly STOP THE BLEED and C.R.A.S.E. (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events) training classes that will be held at the Lexington Police Department from April through June.
Our department is frequently asked by schools, churches, businesses, and community groups for instruction on what to do if they encounter someone bleeding from an injury and how they should react in an active shooter event.
There has been significant interest in these training courses, and last year our instructors taught over 1,200 attendees in STOP THE BLEED and C.R.A.S.E. training.
STOP THE BLEED is a two-hour course that teaches participants three quick actions which can be used to save a life with guidance on the use of tourniquets and wound packing.
C.R.A.S.E. is a two-hour course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy developed by ALERRT, which provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event.
The STOP THE BLEED and C.R.A.S.E. classes will be taught at the Lexington Police Department in our training room on the following dates from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
