American Red Cross offers active threat training in Denver

DENVER — The American Red Cross will begin offering active threat training for anyone in the Denver area.

“After launching a first-of-its kind program for businesses and organizations in 2017, the American Red Cross received an overwhelming number of requests from individuals who would also like to learn fundamentals of the program such as run/hide/fight, stop the bleed and hands-only CPR,” the organization said.

“The program focuses on a message of empowerment, helping individuals understand what they can do to prepare for, respond to and recover from active threats.”

The training happens Jan. 20 from 9 a.m. to noon at the American Red Cross at 444 Sherman St.

Registration is limited to 35 participants. RSVP should be emailed or secured by calling 303-607-4762.
