See Something, Say Something – Free Jewish Security & Emergency Preparedness Training
We are working hard to produce FREE future seminars in partnership with the FBI and the Los Angeles Infragard Members Alliance and other organizations servicing the security and law enforcement community.
During the summer of 2014, several different organizations are sponsoring security training and emergency preparedness fairs for the Los Angeles Jewish Community. Each training has it’s own goal and strengths. Attending one isn’t enough. Attending all these security training and awareness fairs can help members of the Jewish community – synagogues, temples, schools, organizations, charities, and individuals gain a better understanding of what do when the worst happens.

Jewish Threats Briefing sponsored by Infragard Los Angeles
Location: American Jewish University 15600 Mulholland Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90077
Speakers: LAPD, FBI, Jewish Federation’s Community Security Initiative, ADL, & AEGIS Security & Investigations
Topic: The goal of this workshop is to provide valuable information to prevent, prepare, respond and recover from active shooter threats, the most likely threat to our community today. Most active shooter events are over in ten minutes or less, so the response to such an event is critical. Seconds count in saving lives. Our goal is to promote awareness of safety issues in relation to an active shooter event and empower the school to rapidly and effectively respond to the emergency.
Registration: TBD – Sign up for updates above. Registration is FREE.
