St. Paul Lutheran Church to Host CRASE Training
Written by WBTA STAFF on February 16, 2018
St. Paul Lutheran Church will be hosting a special training event for community congregation leaders tomorrow, February 17, at 10:00am, to assist in preparations should an active shooter situation occur in their church.
The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office was invited to present Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training, which addresses individual responses and actions as well as group preparations. The training has been developed in partnership with Texas State University and is funded in part by the United States Department of Justice. “We are pleased to assist Pastor Werk in educating congregation leaders on the appropriate actions to take should an active shooter situation arise,” stated Sheriff William A. Sheron, Jr.
“This training affords congregation leaders the opportunity to come together to talk about ideas they may want to implement in their own churches should the unthinkable occur. We pray this will help all our churches be better prepared if the inconceivable happens,” stated Pastor Allen Werk.
