Sheriff’s office holds crisis training

-A A +A

By Lori Prevatt, Citizen Correspondent

Levy County Sheriff’s Deputy Grant Sandlin presented free crisis training class covering steps that should be taken when under attack. Approximately 25 people attended the training.

The training took place at Bronson Middle High School.

Sandlin began by talking about how humans react to crisis situations by fighting, fleeing, or freezing. He continued by saying how important it was to plan reactions, which consists of three options: running, hiding or fighting.

“Your response can be just as fluid as the event,” Sandlin said. “In other words, you may need to change your options for reacting as the event unfolds.”

He then covered some important points about each option.

If running is the option chosen he instructed the class to plan an escape route, leave belongings behind, evacuate even if others around you freeze and warn others not to enter the area on your way out.

“Do not attempt to evacuate or treat the wounded, instead tell them to try to stop the bleeding and play dead,” Sandlin said.
