CRASE, Stop the Bleed @ Woodcreek Community Center in Fate
Jan 29 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

You must sign up using the button to the right.  We are limited to 40 attendees. 

Stop the Bleed is a course that teaches life saving skills. Knowing how to stop the bleeding on a serious wound, or how to apply a tourniquet properly could mean the difference between life and death. ETRC is putting on a FREE Stop the Bleed training, open to the public. Fate DPS will then teach a CRASE (Citizen’s Response to an Active Shooter Event.) class afterwards.

There is no charge to take the class, but any donation to ETRC would help fund our mission to support the community.   Donations can be made HERE or at the class.

ETRC members should wear their yellow shirts to the class

G317 Basic CERT Class Feb 8th and 15th @ Rockwall County Sheriff's Office
Feb 8 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm

CERT is a program through FEMA that trains and organizes volunteers in the community to assist fire and police during times of need. We assist in disaster response, missing person searches, and pubic event support.  Currently, we support Rockwall, Hunt, Collin, Kaufman, and Van Zandt Counties as well as the Town of Sunnyvale.

Members are trained on a wide range of skills including first aid, light search and rescue, preparedness, fire suppression and other skills.  More advanced training is offered to team members to further expand our capabilities to support the community.

Team members are only expected to attend 3 events/trainings/drills per year, with one of them being a public event to stay on the active callout list.  We have events going on all year, and assisting a public event counts as 2.  Keeping your skills up is essential.

This is the initial 2 day training for all new CERT members.  You must sign up for BOTH days.
