"School Safety" is a very broad and sometimes daunting term. We focus on what your priorities and needs are and work with you to enhance your plans, training, drills and exercises without losing that balance between safety/security and a positive learning environment.
The “I Love U Guys” Foundation’s programs for crisis response and post-crisis reunification are used in more than 30,000 schools and municipalities around the world. They are created through the research-based best practices of school administrators, psychologists, public space safety experts, families, and first responders. We’re a powerful conduit uniting this work.
As our good friends at the I Love U Guys Foundation say, "Recovery starts before the crisis begins." Reunification is the first step in recovery and it is imperative that schools have reunification plans and practice those plans through training, drills and exercises. To that end, we have partnered with the I Love U Guys Foundation, C3 Pathways and the Critical Response Group to give us the ability to provide multiple platforms of reunification planning, drill assistance, exercise planning and facilitation and hands-on training to meet your needs.
Take charge of your family’s safety and get the basic knowledge and skills to safely handle or store firearms and ammunition in the home.
One of the most important steps toward ensuring your own safety is having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it. NRA’s Refuse To Be A Victim® program teaches the tips and techniques you need to be alerted to dangerous situations and to avoid criminal confrontation. Seminars are held across the nation and are open to individuals of all ages.
Threats, whether perceived or actual, have no boundaries. This course is designed to enhance your personal situational awareness, and provide safety strategies when confronted by a threat in your home, workplace, public setting or wherever you may be. Participants will also be provided instruction on how to identify and control severe life-threatening bleeding.
Priority of Life offers various types of active assailant training for civilians, houses of worship, businesses, and schools. Contact us directly for a free consultation so we can work together to provide training that fits your needs.
A key ingredient in managing an active threat incident is an integrated and coordinated response from first responders. After years of conducting "active shooter" drills, training and exercises we have found that often times there is a gap between the initial responders and the follow on supervisory/command staff and additional agencies that arrive. We can assist with getting everyone to work under a common operating picture and process.
We offer customized online or classroom training that provides guiding principles and methods that can assist employees and staff in most situations when faced with a verbally confrontational, hostile or belligerent person. This course is ideal for front office staff at schools, customer service representatives and supervisors.
The Home Safety and Defense Strategies course is a 4-hour, non-shooting, classroom and hands-on course that has been developed for the home gun owner to increase knowledge, situational awareness and tactical mindset in regards to home safety, response under stress and home defense strategies.
