Would leaders from your congregation be interested in a free Active Shooter training?

Although no church wants the worst to happen, we can still prepare to respond in ways that are safe, calm and protect as many as possible. For example, even though it is a tragedy for a church to have a fire, we still prepare emergency exit plans. Without a plan, our “fight or flight” instincts take over, only making situations worse.

Local defense seminar leaders at Blue-U have offered a free 2-hour course specifically for churches:
