George Insurance Group hosted an active shooter response training course on Tuesday, January 14t.h. Chief Jimmy Duckham, Ball State University Police Chief, presented C.R.A.S.E. training (Civilian Response to Active Shooter Event) at the Mitchell Early Childhood and Family Center (Former Mitchell Elementary School) in Muncie. This presentation provided strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics included the history and prevalence of active shooter events, the role of first responders, and civilian response options. Also participating in the event was Jason Seaman, Noblesville West Middle School teacher who on May 25, 2018, stopped a shooter inside his classroom. Attendees heard his story in his words.
“In light of the rise in active shooter events, we wanted to do something for our clients and our community. It’s important for citizens and businesses to have the necessary training to increase their chances of survival,” explained David George, owner of George Insurance Group. “We hope that attendees never have to use the information that they were given.”
Due to the seriousness of the topic, this event was reserved for adults (over 18 years old)
