Special Workshop: How to Control a Threatening Situation in Church of Synagogue


Do you know how to respond to an active shooter in your church or synagogue? There’s a meeting on February 7th at 7:00pm at the Presbyterian Church of Easton on Responding to Active Shooters. While the need to respond to a situation with an active shooter is unlikely, it is something we should be prepared for should the need arise.

A review of best practices should you be confronted with a threatening situation will be led by the Easton Police Department. The Easton Police Department is offering the training to open the conversation in faith community on safety practices.

Ministers, rabbis, faith leaders, church administrators, sextons, building managers, board leaders/trustees, and those who lead usher teams may find this of particular value. All members of the community are welcome. The church is located at 617 N. Washington St, Easton. If there are questions about the training, please contact the Talbot Association of Clergy and Laity at taclexcom@gmail.com.”
