The University Police Department at Wichita State offers several trainings for members of the campus community, including Civilian Response to Active Shooter and Stop the Bleed.

Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE)

The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny Defend (ADD) strategy developed by Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, and the opportunity to participate in officer- active threat scenarios.

Stop the Bleed

Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as five minutes. That’s why bleeding control — keeping the blood inside the body — is the purpose of STOP THE BLEED® training. During this training you will learn different techniques and when to apply them to potentially save you or someone you know. This will be taught through both a lecture portion and interactive skills lab. When paired with the CRASE model it will be incorporated into the scenario-based training.

Note that at all scenario training, there will be what we call a triple check for safety — meaning you will check yourself, check a buddy, then an instructor will check you to ensure you did not bring any weapons into the training area. You will also be checked with a metal detecting wand. This is mandatory to ensure the utmost safety for everyone.
