Church Violence and the Active Shooter

This 4 hour course is designed for faith based organizations, their administration, staff, faculty, volunteers and members, with responsibilities for Emergency Preparedness and Response to address the threat of an active shooter and other violent critical incidents that occur on church properties and campuses. It is a fact that the actions of church staff and members during a critical incident will save more lives than emergency first responders. Statistically, once a shooting starts a life is taken every 15 seconds. It is imperative that staff and members act quickly to implement a response to church based violence.

During this course, attendees will receive presentations on the history and dynamics of faith based violence, Awareness - Preparation & Response tactics for church staff, volunteers and members, behaviors of concern & reporting strategies, defensive classroom/space mindset and the law enforcement response.
