MOHS launced a curriculum for Church Security Training
in November of 2017. The target audience for this course is church administrators and security personnel.
Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE)
seeks to educate individuals on how to increase their survivability by
using three primary principles: Avoidance, Denial and Defense.
The Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT)
Level 1 course is designed to prepare the law enforcement officer to
isolate, distract, and neutralize an active shooter. This course covers
shooting and moving, threshold evaluation, concepts and principles of
team movement, setting up for and room entry techniques, approach and
breaching the crisis site, secondary responder tactics, improvised
explosive devices, and post engagement priorities of work. The course l
culminates with dynamic force on force scenarios.
The Exterior Reponse to Active Shooter Events (ERASE)
course is designed to prepare first responders for an open-air active
shooter encounter. It addresses a wide range of tactics and techniques
when addressing an exterior armed aggressor. This hands on course will
cover equipment selection, vehicle ambushes, medical emergencies,
vehicle and dismounted officer/citizen down rescue, individual/ team
movement techniques, and emergency vehicle crisis response. Some
participants attending this course have found it to be physically
challenging. Officers attending this course should be able to walk
moderate distances, jog, kneel, crawl, and lift moderate weight. This is
an outside class and is routinely conducted during inclement weather
The Active Attack Integrated Response Course (AAIR)
is a 16 hour performance level direct delivery course designed to
improve integration between law enforcement, fire, tele-communicator and
emergency medical services (EMS) in active attack / shooter events.
This course was developed in 2017 for use in 2018 and beyond. It
provides law enforcement officers with key medical skills based on
tactical emergency casualty care (TECC) guidelines, which can be used at
the point of injury (POI) to increase survivability of victims. The
course also provides a model framework for law enforcement, fire, and
EMS to integrate responses during an active attack / shooter event
through the rescue task force concept.
The Active Shooter Events Response (ACER)
is an awareness class for all law enforcement, including mid-level and
upper management. The course takes a look at the current threat picture
and describes significant changes in best practices for active shooter
response. The driving force concept is introduced to assist in decision
making during initial response to stop the killing. Also introduced are
the integrated Rescue Task Force model, working with fire and EMS
personnel within a warm zone with traditional protocols as well as
ambulance exchange points. Empowering and instilling confidence in the
civilians that law enforcement serve by providing response strategies on
how to survive an active shooter event. Finally, the course discusses
model civilian programs and awareness campaigns.
