The program for this gathering, Safety for Church Members & Staff, will be presented by Mr. Jim Lewis, a private consultant on security and emergency management. Jim has a vast array of knowledge and experience, including 25 years in New York as Assistant Superintendent of Schools, where he had full responsibility for student and staff safety. He has been a member of incident command teams at EOC for at least 30 major incidents, and is a national speaker and consultant on emergency management for school districts. He’ll share information on what we as church members and staff can do to minimize the chance of an incident happening in our congregations.

This is a very timely discussion in light of the active shooter incidents that have occurred in recent months. Encourage your usher or greeter teams, as well as your council members, to attend this meeting.
