February 27th, 7:00, ACTIVE SHOOTER AWARENESS TRAINING.
Does life seem precarious and less predictably safe? Churches and schools, thought to be safe “sanctuaries”, are becoming scenes of shooter violence. To address the issue of active shooters in churches, an Active Shooter Awareness Training will be held on Wednesday evening, 7:00 pm -8:30 pm. Deputy James Phelps of the Rensselaer County Sherriff’s Department will lead a training and discussion about active shooter awareness and safety plans. Adults and teens accompanied by their parent(s) are invited to attend.
