Active Shooter. What Would You Do?

Though we hope you are never faced with the situation, would you know what to do in the case of an active shooter? Hide? Evacuate?

Doing the right things can increase your odds of getting through alive. The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office’s “Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events” class offers thought-provoking, eye-opening and engaging strategies, guidance, and plans for surviving an active shooter event. Since January of 2017, over 1300 Ottawa County residents have taken the course.

There is no cost for the classes, but registration is required and space it limited. Time and locations of the sessions vary. “Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events”, or CRASE, classes are offered on a semiregular basis. For upcoming CRASE sessions, watch our webpage:
