ABSTRACT

Threat Assessment Guide for Houses of Worship   [open pdf - 75KB]

"Since 1995, over 1,500 houses of worship have been damaged by fire or bombing. Since that time, the National Church Arson Task Force (NCATF) has monitored every incident and identified common causes of fires. Many fires are preventable. The purpose of this booklet is to share what we have learned with the hope that it will help members of the faith community protect their facilities. This online booklet includes checklists designed to assist in determining your vulnerability to fire and bombing incidents. These guidelines have been developed from years of investigating and studying causes of fires, as well as from consultations with insurance companies and fire prevention experts."
