In light of the many recent attacks on religious communities and places of worship, A+ Technology & Security teamed up with our partner, True Security Design, to offer a free safety seminar on January 9th open to all religious organizations. The seminar tied together both the human and technology components of today’s modern threats to teach attendees how to fully plan and prepare their communities. The name of the course was Surviving the Active Shooter and Securing Your Site for Modern Threats.
This course, taught by True Security Design’s Director of Training Services, Joe Pangaro, focused on planning for today’s modern threats that affect religious communities and places of worship. It featured various active shooter drills and training techniques. Throughout the course, students learned to recognize a potential crisis which can lead to effective action and prevention. Attendees were also taught tactics to diffuse and resolve a crisis situation effectively. In addition, an education on the identification of which security technology fits your place of worship best was provided. A+ Technology & Security and True Security Design plan to provide additional courses like this one to the local community in the future. We truly believe that by giving our neighborhood the information and tools they need, lives will be saved.
