Civilian Response and Casualty Care (CRCC) In-Person Class

Saturday, August 6, 2022

The Purcellville Police Department is pleased to announce they are once again hosting in-person classes for civilians as part of the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice’s (DCJS) Active Attack Program. The program provides free training for Virginia citizens and first responders to enable them to work together when an active attack occurs. In April, the Purcellville Police hosted two virtual classes, but we are fortunate to offer two in-person classes on Friday, August 5th and one morning class on Saturday, August 6th. The Civilian Response and Casualty Care (CRCC) course is a four hour class providing strategies, guidance, and a plan for recognizing, responding to and surviving an active attack event. The class is being offered at three different times; on Friday, August 5th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and again at 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., as well as on Saturday, August 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., with participants only needing to register for one preferred time slot.

This class combines the civilian response with the Stop the Bleed Campaign, which empowers civilians to provide life-saving medical aid before first responders ever arrive.  Topics include the history and prevalence of active attack events, civilian response options, and medical issues. Attending the April online class is NOT a prerequisite for attending the in-person class in August.  If one did previously attend an online course, we still encourage participants to attend in-person, since this class allows for hands-on practical based scenario training, and will expand the foundation of knowledge taught during the virtual session. 

 

The course is designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend/Run, Hide, Fight strategy developed by Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) in 2004.  All Town of Purcellville and Loudoun County residents, local businesses and community members are encouraged to attend, including school employees, students who are 16 years or older, faith-based communities, and civic organizations. Local first responders including law enforcement, Fire/EMS, dispatchers are also invited to attend. Classes will be held at the Purcellville Town Hall, in the Council Chambers Room, located at 221 S. Nursery Ave, Purcellville, Virginia.
