Jewish Atlanta Turns Out in Big Numbers for Security Training

By COMMUNITY, Secure Community Network

420 people attended an online security training, Countering an Active Threat, presented on Sunday by Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. Neil Rabinovitz, Community Security Director, conducted the training, along with Jimi Horne, Deputy Community Security Director.

The training educated participants on how to commit to action if they encounter any type of active threat. There was a review of best practices including:

  • The definition of an active threat
  • Knowing the difference between security and safety
  • Learning the three modes of action in an active shooter incident: RUN, HIDE, FIGHT
  • Understand how to prepare for an active threat
  • The importance of additional training

One recent participant in the security trainings explains how it was memorable and how it helped them:

The information was easy to understand and there were clear suggestions on how to react to an active shooter situation.

It was so helpful to see and hear from someone who survived the Tree of Life shooting and the actions he took that saved his life. That was very compelling and memorable. Seeing videos of active shooter situations and hearing the comments of the security trainer was very helpful.
