This webinar is meant to provide participants with concepts to proactively develop and/or improve safety and security at their camps and outdoor venues. The presentation will include discussion about threat assessments of facilities, continuity of operations planning, standard operating procedures, training for staff, and other important features. Participants will feel that they can proactively and positively promote a safe and secure outdoor venue without imposing on the serenity and ambiance of their location.

By the end of this webinar, participants will:

  1. Understand the importance of a Threat Assessment and understand what goes in to creating one.
  2. How to outline current plans and identify things camps should have in place including: equipment, points of contact, and training programs.
  3. Begin planning for contingencies in the event of a natural or manmade disaster.
  4. Feel empowered to take a proactive approach in the development and improvements of safety planning.
