The public is invited to attend an active shooter presentation and training hosted by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, from 4-6 p.m. in the Hudson Junior/Senior High School auditorium (215 Harry Howard Ave, Hudson).

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) is a presentation developed by the ALERRT Center of the University of Texas to provide civilians with strategies and guidance for what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event.

“In light of the rise of active shooter events around the country, I wanted to present an information training open to the entire community. The CRASE training at the Hudson school is designed to give the average person strategies, guidance, and tips for surviving an active shooter event. I believe that all community members must attend this training event.” Sheriff Donald J. Krapf. 

The training and subject matter may be disturbing and graphic for some. We suggest that those attending the training be ages 14 and up.

Topics of the CRASE presentation will include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills. Anyone in the community can attend this free event.

Thank the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department for hosting this event and their valued partnership with the district. We would also like to thank our student board representative for their role in bringing this training to our attention.
