This course incorporates lecture, video and classroom discussion into the training.

The Shreveport City Marshal's Office currently offers a Civilian Response to Active Attack Events and STOP THE BLEED® courses to the public.
Civilian Response to Active Attack Event is a nationally recognized and federally funded course that teaches civilians how to respond before, during, and after an active attack event or life-threatening incident. The original program, Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) was created by Advance Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Center at Texas State University. The course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004. It provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active attack event. In 2013, ALERRT was named the national standard in Active Shooter Response by the FBI. Currently, FBI Agents are becoming instructors in CRASE. Through research, this course gives you the best possible chance to survive an active attack event or even life-threatening event. The course is free to the public.
STOP THE BLEED® is a national awareness campaign and call-to-action. The STOP THE BLEED® campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the White House National Security Council Staff. The purpose of
the campaign is to build national resilience by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. STOP THE BLEED® is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Minutes count! Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes. That’s why bleeding control—keeping the blood inside the body—is the purpose of STOP THE BLEED® training.
