At CongregationU, we want to offer some hope in light of the tragic shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that took 26 lives and wounded many more last Sunday.
From now through January 10, 2018, our “Active Shooter Situations in Church Settings” online training course is available FREE to churches and faith-based organizations.
In this course, your clergy, staff, volunteers, and members will learn:
· How active shooter situations differ from other emergency situations
· What to do when faced with an active shooter situation
· How to work with law enforcement during an active shooter situation
· The importance of planning and preparing for emergency situations
· Specific challenges churches present in active shooter situations
Our mission is to educate congregations about relevant, timely topics through e-learning. In the wake of this tragedy, we hope this training course can be a bridge for knowledge and awareness, to help congregations as they seek to protect their facilities and the people within.
