Town Hall Mtg. Public Response to Active Shooter Training by Nashville Metro Police

Town Hall Mtg. Public Response to Active Shooter Training by Nashville Metro Police at Oak Hill City Hall on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 5pm.

The active shooter presentation that we give is strictly informational in PowerPoint form. We do not offer hands on training. I have included a little detail about the active shooter presentation. The purpose of the active shooter presentation (CRASE- Civilian Response to Active Shooter (attacker) Events) is to give individuals knowledge of:

  • Best practices of survival through Avoid, Deny, Defend formally known as Run, Hide, Fight
  • Learn about the psychology of who survives & why during disastrous events
  • Being situational aware of your surroundings during all times anywhere you are
  • Getting in the proper mindset of having a script & practicing (whether at home, work, or anywhere). This includes having a contingency plan in place for your place of employment.
  • Know what to expect when first responders respond.


As active attacks are becoming far more common throughout our nation, the goal is not to promote fear. But to encourage individuals to think & plan “If something was to happen, what is my plan?”

During the presentation, there will not be any viewings of persons injured, killed, or death. I believe we see too much of that from television and the internet. This is all informational. The approximate time for the presentation with Q & A is 1 hour 15 minutes. I have copied a link of the video that I have people take a picture of (after the presentation) so they can view it on their own time. The video summarizes the practices of Avoid, Deny, Defend http://www.avoiddenydefend.org/ Please let me know if you or the City of Oak Hill have further questions or concerns.
