Safety Task Force Presentation

safety-task-forceMembers of the First Parish Violence Prevention Task Force have been busy at work formulating an evacuation plan for any potential threats from violent intruders. This follows a Violence Prevention Workshop for Houses of Worship held last March at Temple Isaiah and attended by members and staff of First Parish. Presenters included members of the Lexington and Burlington Police.

Following this Sunday’s service, parishioners are asked to remain in their seats following the postlude for a ten-minute explanation and demonstration of the emergency plan by the First Parish Violence Prevention Task Force. This presentation is for adults only in the sanctuary. During social hour, we urge all congregants to watch a 6-minute video used to train the First Parish Violence Prevention Task Force. The video will run in the parlor and all adults (and teens) are urged to watch this important video. There will be continued childcare available during social hour so that parents can watch the video. Thank you in advance for attending this information session that is designed to keep all of us safe.
