Active Shooter Training Offered in Batavia
Written by WBTA STAFF on February 16, 2018
The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office was invited by St. Paul Lutheran Church leadership to present Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events training or ‘CRASE’ for short, to address what individuals and groups can do to be prepared for the worst.
St. Paul Lutheran Church Pastor Allen Werk has been the Chaplin for the Sheriff’s Office for the past 5 years.
He was taught on administering the CRASE training after completing it along with other local deputies.
The training will focus on how to avoid, deny access, and potentially defend yourself against the threat of a shooter.
One hot button issue the training doesn’t address is whether congregants are safer with guns in church.
The Pastor said that is a decision better left to the congregation.
St. Paul Lutheran Church will be hosting the special training event for community congregation leaders tomorrow, February 17th at 10 a.m.
