WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — November 17, 2019 — Westchester County is offering another training session for residents to learn the strategies and skills they could use to survive if an active shooter event occurred in their place of work or other public venue.
Known as Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE), the training class will be offered on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at SUNY Purchase, 735 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase.
The training is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required and can be done at: https://
The lecture-style training will be held in the college’s Choral Hall. Parking is in the West 2 lot.
Westchester County Police have also provided CRASE training to many school district employees and other members of law enforcement, who have then brought the training back to their local communities. In addition, County Police have worked closely with educators, staff and students to enhance the prevention of, and response to, an active shooter event in school buildings where County Police officers serve as School Resource Officers.
