In response to the tragic shootings at synagogues in Pittsburgh and San Diego as well as recent hate crimes and incidents of intolerance in Howard County, the Jewish Federation and its JCRC are hosting a Safety & Security Summit for the community, in partnership with the Howard County Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security. All Howard County residents, faith-based groups, and institutions are welcome to attend this important program. 

Learn how to mitigate attacks and respond to other disasters, such as fire, severe weather, and even earthquakes. The presentation will include an overview of the All-Hazards Approach; information about Run, Hide, Fight; a Security Plan for Houses of Worship (SHOW); and information on Stop the Bleed.
