UUCM and RE Classroom Safety Improvements

Over the next couple of weeks, you may notice some modifications to the RE classrooms including installation of blinds over the windows, and keys hanging by the doors. These changes are part of a broader effort on the part of the church to update and more thoroughly implement our Active Threat Policy. As we’ve seen over the last several years, attacks in and on public spaces do occur, and while the likelihood that we at UUCM would be a target is small, the UUCM Board felt it prudent to be sure that we are equipped to respond should an emergency arise. So, we’ll be making some modifications to the classrooms over the coming months, and before May, plan to have opportunities for the congregation to practice how we would respond to different kinds of emergency situations. If you have questions or concerns about any of this, please be in touch with Arif Mamdani via email or at 952.473.5900 x 102.
