    Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events 

    Captain Troy Squire, Lawrence Police Department

    C.R.A.S.E.  Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events

    Learning Objectives:

    • The history of active shooters
    • The Avoid, Deny, Defend plan for survival
    • What to expect when the police arrive

    This course is designed to take the student through a historical review of active shooter events over the last 20 years.  We will look at lessons learned from a police perspective as well as the perspective of survivors.   The course will discuss a plan (Avoid, Deny, Defend) to survive and buy time until the police can arrive on scene.  This course will also look at expectations when the police arrive, and things to consider after the initial event.  

    Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace

    Nicole Rials, Bert Nash Mental Health Center

    Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Lite will provide an overview of the MHFA program, an international program designed to engage conversation and teach individuals how to respond to someone who is having a mental health crisis.  This program will discuss the Bert Nash CMHC initiative to offer this public education program which helps to aid friends, neighbors, family and co-workers when needed.    In addition, the program will provide information on crisis services in the Douglas County community, and the value of offering mental health support in the workplace following a workplace crisis or sentinel event.
