Forest Baptist Church, 1313 2 Church Ln, Forest, VA 24551, USA
Places of worship are where we feel most safe, but in fact can be extremely vulnerable. The Virginia Fusion Center is providing a presentation on how religious organizations can be welcoming and also safe at the same time. Topics will include violence in places of worship, addressing potential threats, policy and planning for violence, safety in outreach, firearms in places of worship and civilian response to active shooter events.
This seminar is Virginia DCJS approved for 8 Hours of Law Enforcement PIC and/or Crime Prevention CPS training

CBERS 2017: WATER YOU DRINKING?
May 3, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Sheraton Roanoke Hotel & Conference Center, 2801 Hershberger Rd NW, Roanoke, VA 24017, USA
Each year Virginia Department of Health conducts Community Based Emergency Response Seminars (CBERS) for community partners. This year our theme is focused on responding to a local contaminated water disaster. State offices and agencies (i.e. Office of Epidemiology, Office of Environmental Health, Department of Environmental Quality, Office of Drinking Water and Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Office of Risk Communication and Education) have collaborated to establish a training to include a table-top exercise in preparation for such an event. This Spring, CBERS event will cover 7 sessions, covering the same content, regionally throughout the state.
Please take time and distribute the registration information to epidemiologists, emergency coordinators, environmental health staff and others within your districts, associations, and field offices. Please share with water works operators, local emergency management, and public works partners. For more information, please visit CBERS 2017 “Water You Drinking” web page at http://www.vdh.virginia.gov/emergency-preparedness/cbers2017/. We look forward to seeing you and your staff at CBERS 2017!
