Safety and Security Seminar

THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR SOME TIME IN MARCH.

St. Mark's Lutheran Church
4200 Londonderry Road
Harrisburg, PA 17109

We at St. Marks have recently been made aware of things that could happen in today’s ever changing society. George Giangi, of the South Central PA Regional Counter Terrorism Task Force, will be giving a seminar to help us better understand some of these situations, such as fires, natural disasters, and medical emergencies, and many others, and how to respond to them.

Local law enforcement and other first responders will be invited to attend the seminar to give first-hand knowledge and accounts of what they have experienced. If you plan to attend, please contact Bill Kroah.
