FOX24 of Fayetteville, Ark., reported on our church security training “from the parking lot to the pulpit, and Band-Aids to bullets.”
“The presentation was put on for everyone from church greeters to those in leadership, and discussed how to identify suspicious behavior and respond to threats. It also provided an overview of lockdown procedures and de-escalating strategies.”
Instructor Tim Peterson said churches need to be ready for violent intruders, but also for any event that might put congregants at risk.
“It’s not just some of those hot-button items,” he said. “It’s a violent intruder, but also covering things from medical response to severe weather events.”
