In cognizance of our mission to provide members with information, analysis, and capabilities to help reduce risk while enhancing preparedness, security, and resilience, our team at Faith-Based Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (FB-ISAO) is always eager to find like-minded partners.
The Department of Homeland Security has identified Houses of Worship as a prime category of ST-CP, or Soft Targets-Crowded Places, as noted by Assistant Director Brian Harrell in his letter introducing the updated Security of Soft Targets and Crowded Places–Resource Guide last month. He wrote, “The cornerstone of our democracy is a free and open society where citizens can enjoy a wide range of activities without fear of harm. People across the U.S. should expect that they will be safe and secure as they cheer on a favorite team at a sporting event, shop at a mall, attend a house of worship, go to school, dine out with family and friends, or go to a concert.”
The threats and risks houses of worship and the broader community of faith-based organizations face have been made all to clear in recent headlines and FB-ISAO reporting. As our team strives to execute our mission, we are always searching for safety services partners who share our commitment to protecting worshipers. One such partner is Vizsafe, which provides an intuitive and easy to use mobile incident reporting and management platform.
