BROKEN BOW — The public is invited to attend a civilian training for active shooter situations, sponsored by the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP).
Call Randy Jenkins at 308-872-6691 to reserve your spot. The event is free, but registration is limited to 50 attendees. The event will be held at the Cobblestone (2750 South 27th Avenue, Broken Bow, NE 68822) meeting room on Tuesday, April 24 at 6:30 p.m.
Jenkins said this type of training is sad to have to think about, “but it’s the world we live in.”
According to a Nebraska State Patrol press release, the Civilian Response to Active Killer Events (CRAKE) program was developed to provide information on awareness and steps a civilian can take to increase their safety in these horrific situations. CRAKE focuses on three steps: Avoid, Deny, and Defend.
“This training is designed specifically for civilians to know how to react in the worst situations,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “The CRAKE course helps Nebraskans be more prepared and have a plan of response to increase their likelihood of survival.”
