Resources to Protect Houses of Worship

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a resources page dedicated to assisting faith-based and community organizations with their efforts to protect houses of worship. Recognizing that public gatherings in faith-based venues are vulnerable targets, DHS offers a wide range of technical assistance to prepare for all types of hazards, whether natural or human-made. Presentations, workshops, tabletop exercises, and information on funding support opportunities, are just some of the materials available to encourage faith-based and other community organizations to take proactive measures to reduce the likelihood, or minimize the impact, of an attack on local venues.

Resources to Protect Your House of Worship can be viewed here: https://www.fema.gov/faith-resources.
