First UMC hosts active shooter training

WINNSBORO – The Safety Team at First United Methodist Church in Winnsboro is bringing Precision Tactics for an active shooter training session to be held in the church’s fellowship hall on Thursday, Mar. 8 at 6 p.m.

Percision Tactics was featured last week on WIS-TV and has been endorsed by Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott for their work in active shooter training.  The company is a partner with the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association and provides this type of training to churches, businesses and law enforcement agencies.

The session is being held to familiarize law enforcement officers with the church’s team and procedures.  The company specializes in church security and will be bringing in the simulation equipment prepared to work with the church’s safety team using inert pistols.  After the training, the church’s safety team will actively work during worship services and any other time as deemed necessary.
