Active Shooter Training for Houses of Worship

Greetings Fellow Faith Leaders,

In collaboration with the Pomona Police Department and the Pomona Valley Interagency Task Force, I am organizing an active shooter training event specific to Houses of Worship.

In light of the recent events involving violence both in public places and in Houses of Worship (ex. Sutherland Springs, Memphis, Charleston), we have discovered there is energy for law enforcement,  and faith community leaders to develop ways to mitigate the risk of becoming victims of an mass shooting event inside our worship spaces.  Mass shootings are just one of the many types of disasters to which worshipping communities must respond whether it be as a direct victim or as care givers to our neighbors.

The intent of this training is not to create fear or undermine the openness of our religious spaces; rather it is to train people how to immediately perceive and respond to this type of threat in the same manner we teach people to respond to fires by participating in fire drills.

The training will take place on:

Saturday, Feb 17, 2018 from 9:00 am to 12:00pm

at First Christian Church of Pomona located at 1751 N Park Ave, Pomona, CA 91768.

At this training you will receive:

1. In-depth discussion surrounding Run Hide Fight video
2. Run/Hide/Fight tactics relevant to sanctuaries and large auditoriums
3. Demonstration of fight tactics when Run/Hide is not an option
4. Realistic Exercise Scenario allowing participants to demonstration what they learned

Space for this training is limited so we ask that everyone RSVP via Evite or contact at the email below. We ask that each community send no more than two people who will be empowered to bring the lessons back to your community.

If you have any questions, please contact me via the information below
