Topic: Workplace Violence, Active Shooter Awareness
Panel: Police Officer Carrie Hemming-Cotter, Madison Police Department

Session Description:   It is unfortunate that sudden violence perpetrated by an individual or individuals determined to kill innocent people is a reality in modern American communities.  The good news is that the likelihood of finding yourself under fire by an active shooter is less that that of being struck by lightning.  Just as you can lessen your chances of being struck by lightning, there are simple things you can do to respond effectively if you ever find yourself in this unthinkable situation.  The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) class is a statistically based training program for all members of the Madison community interesed in demystifying these frightening events.  The training will include: a statistical breakdown of active shooter events, historical case studies, behavioral tools to maximize your changes of survival based on the physiology and psychology of human behavior under stress.
