our guest was
U.S. Representative, Tom MacArthur
New Jersey 3rd Congressional District
U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur shared his dismay at the vitriol and
misrepresentation characterizing the current campaign season. Tom is running
for re-election to his seat from New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District.
Tom went on to review some of his recent efforts to address particular
problems that impact New Jersey, among them the opioid crisis, the future of
the Joint Base, and efforts by FEMA to "claw back" funds from Superstorm
Sandy victims among others.
On this, his fourth visit with the OC Mayors, Tom again reaffirmed his
commitment to bipartisanship.
September 20, 2018,
our guest was
Laura M. Fosselman
Mississippi Office of Homeland Security
Laura presented Civilian Response
to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) summary to the Mayors. CRASE was designed
and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend strategy of the Advanced Law
Enforcement Rapid Response Training developed by Texas University.
Laura said you should be aware of your surroundings, know your exits, and
plan what you would do in an active shooter event. Other
elements of the programs included these:
Get out if you can exit without engaging the shooter. Think about those
secondary exits including windows.
Lock and barricade doors.
There are no rules. Get past the denial of the situation/ Get angry. It's
you or the shooter.
Laura also discussed church planning and security.
The Ocean County Mayors' Association has been found tax
exempt by the IRS. Donations are deductible. Documentation of this
