Many people think of a house of worship as a safe area where violence and emergencies cannot affect them. However, violence in houses of worship is nothing new. In addition to acts of violence; fires, tornados, floods, hurricanes, and other natural or man-made disasters can affect a house of worship.
The Sheriff’s Office offers training to churches and religious organizations to help them plan and prepare for emergency situations. If you would like more information on emergency planning please call 256-974-2500.
