Houses of Worship Participate in Preparedness

On July 1, 2015, the Department of Homeland Security Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships hosted the “Resources to Help Prepare Houses of Worship for Emergencies” webinar. 
The webinar shared resources available through the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security to help houses of worship create emergency operations plans. Presenters also discussed the importance of building relationships with first responders and how organizations can prepare for natural disasters and active shooter situations.
Response to the discussion was great, with more than 1,100 attendees and positive feedback from participants. The webinar also received national publicity on the Fortune Magazine website, and in a local news story on CBS affiliate WLTX in Columbia, South Carolina.
If you were unable to attend the webinar, the recorded presentation is available with closed captioning at:  Faith and community leaders can also download resources to assist with preparing for emergency situations.
