Announcing Upcoming Online Training Events

for our Western North Carolina Jewish Community

The Secure Community Network*, in cooperation with the WNC Jewish Community Security Task
Force, is scheduling from 2:00-4:00pm on two consecutive Sundays, April 11th and April 18th, online
training workshops. These training sessions are being offered to our WNC Jewish communities at no
cost with advance registration required.
1) Situational Awareness Training: This program will identify the levels of situational awareness
and, through lecture as well as scenario-based learning, assist participants in understanding
how to better protect themselves, their organizations, and their facilities through situational
awareness. This program allows individuals to ensure their own safety and security against
various threats, from active threats to everyday crime. (See attached flyer)
2) Countering Active Threat Training (CATT): From the targeting of Jewish institutions by white
supremacists and followers of the so-called Islamic State to workplace violence issues,
institutions – to include workplaces, schools, hospitals and other places of public gathering –
face a heightened risk from active threats, whether firearms, knives, or emergent threats such
as vehicle attacks. Designed and built on the DHS “Run, Hide, Fight” strategy, this SCN course
provides strategies, guidance, and a proven plan for surviving an active threat event. Topics
include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, strategies for response and medical
issues. (See attached flyer)
