CRASE offered to Rabun County school faculty

As a means to provide safety training and education to local school administrators, staff and teachers, Rabun County Sheriff Chad Nichols held a Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) this past week.

“The CRASE training,” Nichols said. “…is designed to provide all civilians with the knowledge that will empower and instill confidence to survive an active shooter attack whether at work, church, the movie theater or anywhere else they may be. The CRASE program is designed as an awareness tool that will strengthen the ability to survive and instill confidence to civilians of all ages and abilities, helping them understand that what you do matters in an active shooter event.”

Teachers assembled and heard from Georgia Emergency Management Agency officials and Nichols who educated them on certain tactics faculty can apply to not only save their own lives but students as well.
