A place of worship should be a sacred space.

Church Safety Training & Assessment

Attending church, synagogue, mosque, or any other place of worship should feel safe. Unfortunately, our places of worship have become a target for people intent on committing violence. It’s imperative that church staff and others take action to secure their place of worship in the incidence of violence.

What happens at

Church Safety Training

At ProActive Response Group, we believe that, in the event of violence, every employee working in a corporate office should be trained, prepared, and informed on the most effective actions they can take to protect their safety and those around them.

1. On-site Assessment

Our staff will provide an on-site security assessment, including a discussion with church staff about their concerns, potential vulnerabilities, ideas to mitigate shortcomings, and a custom training and response program that involves the entire body of the church.

2. Active Shooter Response Training Class

You may choose to send key members of the congregation or staff to Active Shooter Response Training classes, and we’d be happy to discuss with you the benefits you’ll receive from empowering your congregation with effective actions that anybody can take in the event of an emergency.

3. Bleeding Control Training

We also provide emergency medical response training as part of our Active Shooter Response Training classes, where individuals gain hands-on experience in applying tourniquets, packing wounds, and other essential techniques if a serious injury happens.
