GHENT – The Oath Keepers of Columbia and Greene Counties will sponsor a presentation of the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) program Thursday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Whitestone Café, 2337 Route 66.
The well-respected and topically-important CRASE program will be led by Investigator Tony Brahm of the Columbia Country Sheriff’s Department. It is designed to help participants survive a mass shooting, focusing on strategies to increase one’s chances of survival, identifying what everyday objects make the best defensive weapons, increasing one’s situational awareness, and the best choices in a fight or flight decision.
This program has been presented to employees in larger businesses around Columbia County and to various county offices. The April 19 presentation offers an opportunity for interested and concerned individuals who have not previously seen it to reap the benefits of being prepared for the type of nightmare that has become all too common in today’s society.
The program is free and open to the public. However, due to space limitations, reservations are required by calling Don at (518) 392-5337.
No recording devices are allowed in the program.
Light refreshments will be served and meals are available from the restaurant prior to the program.
