Why did we create an active shooter training for churches and places of worship?
Places of worship, such as churches, temples, monasteries and mosques, are sacred to so many people in our country and where so many go to find peace and solace.
Unfortunately, just like we see with our children’s schools, there is no place that is immune to an evil attack.
Active shooter and active killer incidents are sporadic and unpredictable. Active shooter training was developed to equip every-day citizens with a strong individualized plan on how to react to threatening situations, like a mass-murder attack.
Why We Created An Active Shooter Training For Churches and Faith-Based Organizations
Many people find comfort in relying on their faith to get them through troubled times. Faith is a powerful feeling to many and is translated in the form of prayer. In the instance of an immediate threat and danger, while prayer is an important action to people of faith, we encourage taking quick, decisive action in addition to prayers.
We must take action in saving our lives and potentially others if a violent intruder enters through these peaceful gates.
Just like most of us have trained as a child or as adults in our current positions for fire safety and natural disasters, we must also have the mindset to get educated in active shooter training for our place of worship.
What Makes Our Active Shooter Training For Churches Outstanding
Specifically, Guardian Defense has created active shooter training for churches and places of worship to meet the needs of each unique faith-based organization.
Active shooter training for churches and places of worship is a program that:
- encompasses education,
- drills, and
- safety enhancements to improve the level of comfort that religious establishments bring.
Guardian Defense understands the obstacles churches and other places of worship face as they are traditionally attacked in an open area with the potential of many victims. We can provide specific training that will address these issues and assist in pushing past these barriers and save more lives.
With an increase of church shootings and attacks on religion in our country, it is time for us to improve safety in our places of worship by developing clear written procedures and training for all staff and attendees.
