GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Tuesday night, a school safety community briefing will be held in the Greater Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce building.

We found that the objective is to get all stakeholders on board for the safety of children, teachers, and
everyone else in the Geneva City School District.

In July, Geneva Police Chief Pepper Mock along with Dothan police conducted active shooter training at Geneva High School. It’s part of the training for the unthinkable.

On Tuesday night, the Geneva Lions Club will hold a school safety community briefing for the city school district’s parents, grandparents, and faculty as well.

Lions Club President Lori Shortt says “We hope this never happens in our area but we also know that it could and we want to know and want to assure the parents of the community that our students and our teachers are safe.”

Shortt says this is not just a Geneva City School District thing, but any school district anywhere but especially across the wiregrass so any parent or member of the community is welcome to the meeting.

Geneva School Superintendent Ron Snell says “make sure our stakeholders are fully aware of the lengths that we go through to plan, to prepare for any eventuality to do our best to mitigate those and reduce any chance of harm coming to our kids.”

“We’ve invited the chief, our sheriff, and the superintendent to share with us how they are keeping our kids safe. What measure they are taking and how they are being proactive,” according to Shortt.

All parents, grandparents, and community members are invited to attend this briefing which
will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 20th night at the Greater Geneva Chamber of Commerce at 414 East Magnolia Avenue.
