About the event
This free event is open to the entire community, courtesy of the Secure Community Network (SCN), the official safety and security organization of the Jewish community in North America.
The first part of the training will cover the basics of situational awareness -- how to recognize suspicious or potentially dangerous behavior and threats, and what to do - whether you are in synagogue, at school, at work, or just running errands.
The second part will cover what to do if you are faced with an active threat, including how to prepare in advance, how to commit to action during an incident, how to respond to the arrival of law enforcement, and the importance of additional programs such as Stop the Bleed(TM). The training incorporates the principles of the nationally recognized "Run-Hide-Fight" approach to surviving active threats.
The training will conclude with an exercise to demonstrate how to apply these skills.
Instructor Brad Orsini is SCN's Senior National Security Advisor. Following more than 30 years of service as a U.S. Marine Corps officer and FBI special agent, Mr. Orsini served the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh as its first Director of Community Security before joining SCN in 2020.
Representatives of the Fort Worth Police Department and the news media have also been invited to help strengthen community connections.
