From natural disasters to medical emergencies to active shooters, the modern church faces unprecedented risks. To mitigate these risks, many churches are forming response teams.
The CHURCH RESPONSE TEAM is comprised of men and women with the GIFT of of SERVING by way of protecting the flock. Most churches select response team members who have backgrounds in the military, law enforcement, as well as civilians who have special skills and/or interests.
Regardless of your team's prior expertise, the protection of the flock at your church has unique needs that might not have been properly addressed in your Response Team's prior training. That's where Patriot Training can help. We offer a few basic training classes that help everyone get trained up to a common level of skill for the most likely risks they might respond to.
PATRIOT TRAINING Offers life-saving instructional segments for your response team.
All Church Response Team training classes start with the Fundamentals of Church Response (2 hours). This class introduces needed roles, fundamentals of responsibilities, needed knowledge for team members, team member selection, how to handle natural disasters and other emergencies, and more.
This segment, patterned after the world-famous Stop the Bleed, and is designed to teach your team the hands-on way to pro-actively stop critical bleeding in order to save lives.
Learn to recognize and treat life-threatening bleeding immediately, using direct pressure, tourniquets, and wound packing.
More and more frequently, churches face the difficult situation of having to deal with agitated individuals. Being able to verbally de-escalate the situation is absolutely critical - one wrong step and your church and members of the response team may face criminal charges or civil suits.
Military and Police de-escalation techniques are very good - for military or police application. De-escalation in the civilian world is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT skill set. Where military and police force compliance through acknowledgement of vested authority, civilians CANNOT use this methodology without serious risk of disastrous consequence.
PATRIOT TRAINING teaches your Response Team members the hands-on methodology of how to open lines of communication with an agitated individual in this segment. Using techniques from corporate conflict resolution, hostage negotiation, and real world experience de-escalating agitated individuals in a church setting, you will learn how to create a dialogue, and how to handle if that is absolutely impossible.
The sad fact is that active killers exist. Equally as unfortunate is that sometimes, these persons target places of worship as their battleground.
