Planning for Active Shooter Emergencies

The UUA has a planning guide for active shooter incidents, developed by our Safe Congregations team and incorporating wisdom from a variety of resources.

See other sample active shooter emergency resources developed by our congregations.

Additionally, Unitarian Universalist congregations have found the following guides helpful in developing safety plans for active shooter and lockdown situations. Please note that FEMA is now a part of the Department of Homeland Security. FEMA has some wonderful resources; however, Sanctuary Congregations should think through any trainings with governmental departments that currently work with ICE, particularly if the resource requires signing up for membership, such as an online workshop or DHS staff learning building-related information about Sanctuary congregations.
