Stewart Country, Tennessee Mayor Considers Church Security

"Stewart County emergency officials were back to hammering out an optional security plan for churches on July 22 following a two-month hiatus in which they dealt with flooding issues.

The group not only wants to proceed for obvious reasons - the opportunity for local faith-based organizations to have the skills to be proactive rather than reactive in the case of an emergency - but because the larger world is watching as well.

According to Stewart County Mayor Rick Joiner, federal officials through the office of Homeland Security have expressed "significant interest in modeling and acquiring our plan for other jurisdictions and entities across the nation to utilize."
