WFPD to host a response to active shooter training

Local News

Texomans will have a chance to take part in the “Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events” training hosted by our local heroes at the Wichita Falls Police Department on Wednesday.

The WFPD is encouraging Texomans to attend if they can, as this training will provide tools necessary for surviving an active shooter event.

The C.R.A.S.E. course is designed for an “avoid, deny and defend” strategy, that Sgt. Harold McClure said teaches individuals to actively save themselves.

“We would love to be able to get this information out to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen,” McClure said.

“It’s extremely important information, I would love to be able to stand here and tell you that active attack, active shooter are on the decrease but unfortunately they are not,” McClure said.

The training starts at 6 PM on Wednesday at the Public Safety Training Center on Flood Street.

“It’s a scary thought of active shooter encounters, however, it is something that we are seeing that is on the increase so we would like to equip people with,” McClure said. 

The event is free to attend, follow this link, to register.
