Worship House Safety Class

Two opportunities have been provided to me and are listed below. This training was scheduled well in advance of the recent events in Pittsburgh. However, I believe the information presented is timely, very informative, and can be very beneficial as we move forward as partners in the disaster response ministry.

A House of Worship Safety and Security Seminar is being held on Sunday, November 4, 2018, beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Grace Community Church in Fulton, Maryland. I understand this is scheduled for this coming weekend and may be a longer drive for some of you. I will continue to forward opportunities as I receive them that may be more local.

Additionally, a general Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events training opportunity is scheduled for Tuesday, November 20, 2018, beginning at 6:00 p.m., at the Franklin County Public Safety Training Center in Chambersburg, PA.

Please see the attached flyers for additional details. Feel free to disseminate to local congregations, post on bulletin boards and include in newsletters. And, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

Furthermore, I have attached information from the Department of Homeland Security regarding active shooter awareness. As we move forward, please use these resources to inform and answer any questions that may arise regarding active shooter events.
