Worship Facility Podcast: Security Planning – How to Leverage a Building Emergency Plan to Protect Your Church

by | Mar 2, 2023 | Administration, Facilities, Podcasts, Security

Events like the civil unrest across the world following the death of George Floyd by police in 2020 showed that when the unexpected strikes, emergency action plans need to be in place already so staff and volunteers are prepared to respond appropriately in an emergency. With an increase in mental illness, workplace violence, cyber attacks and internet outages, churches are starting to ask, ”Are we ready, even for what we can’t yet imagine happening?”

If your church has put off action planning, you’re not alone. Your peers are asking themselves the same thing. In this presentation we will explore how to make emergency planning a priority, as well as 3 things you need to do to build a successful building emergency plan.

Takeaways include:

1 – Why a building emergency action plan is so important

2 – How to leverage a plan to build a more holistic safety and security plan
