With the recent number of attacks on churches and other places of worship, how to respond to an active shooter or other emergency is becoming an increasingly relevant discussion for many religious officials. At Captiva, we believe nobody should be afraid of practicing their religion in their place of worship, and we are dedicated to educating religious officials about the importance of ensuring their churches are prepared for any emergency. The Lifezette features an insightful article about the importance of places of worship being prepared to handle emergencies: “God, Guns, and Protecting the Faithful.” This article captures the importance of bolstering places of worship with an effective emergency preparedness plan, instead of relying on armed members of the congregation or waiting for first responders to respond to the crisis.
