New Safety Toolkit for Houses of Worship

2/27/2020
Violent attacks on houses of worship have created concern among faith leaders for the safety of their congregants. In response to those concerns, the Ohio Emergency Management Agency has released a free resource aimed at getting religious leaders and worshippers to discuss potential risks and responses to violence.
 
The “Houses of Worship: Targeted Disruption Table Top Exercise Toolkit” includes PowerPoint presentations, facilitator and participant manuals and other resource materials. Immediate free access to the toolkit is available after a brief registration form is completed. More information is available at www.ema.ohio.gov.
