Security Training for All Congregants and Staff
Quick link: Registration Form
We hope ALL Beth Emeth members (teens & adults) will attend a session of both Active Threat Response Training and Stop the Bleed® Training (also open to BEECC parents):
Active Threat Response Training
Wednesday, July 24, 6:30-8:30 PM OR Sunday, August 11, 10:30 AM–12:30 PM
This course is specifically designed to provide members of the Jewish community with proven defense/survival strategies to implement during critical incidents. The course teaches the “mindset” of response and survival as well as key practical active threat response strategies and decision-making.
Stop the Bleed® Training
Sunday, September 8 -- You will be assigned a 1-hour session between 9 AM and 1 PM (see notice below)
Knowing how to control bleeding can save your life or the life of someone near you. This course is appropriate for all audiences and offers training in basic bleeding control techniques such as direct pressure, wound packing, and tourniquet application. This course is a part of the national “Stop the Bleed®” campaign.
NOTICE: The “Stop the Bleed” training class will be a hands-on session, taught with small trainer/trainee ratios. To accommodate larger than expected registration numbers, we will need to split the class into several 1-hour sessions between 9:00 AM and 1:00 pm that day. You will be notified at least one week in advance which session to attend; if you have a conflict, we will make every effort to switch you to a session that fits your needs. Registration for the “Stop the Bleed” class will close on July 31.
We will also offer specialized training for High Holiday Ushers and Year-Round Greeters and Floor Gabbais (All congregants are welcome and encouraged to attend.)
Sunday, September 15, 10:00–11:30 AM
Security training for anyone who plans to usher during High Holidays, or acts as a greeter or Floor Gabbai anytime during the year.
