When Violence Strikes at School, You CAN Be Prepared!

Schools are "soft" targets
for violence.

Your school must be ready to respond to violent events and emergencies.

But what should you do? How will you do it? Who can help you with planning, training, and implementation?

The FASTER program is your complete, ready-to-go solution.

Created by concerned parents, law enforcement, and nationally-recognized safety and medical experts, FASTER is a groundbreaking, nonprofit program that gives educators practical violence response training.

Using our grant program, classes can be provided at little to NO COST to your school district.

What is FASTER?

  • F A S T E R stands for
    • Faculty/Administrator Safety Training & Emergency Response
  • TIME is all that MATTERS!
    • 1st – Stop the killing. Use any and every means available.
    • 2nd – Stop the dying. Have medical tools and training on site.
  • Armed schools staff do not replace Law Enforcement/EMTs.
    • They add one additional layer to your school’s existing safety and security plan.
    • They are first responders right at the point of attack.
    • Their role is to protect your kids and provide critical aid until outside professionals can arrive.
  • Ran and funded by a 501c3 non-profit charity. 
    • The FASTER Saves Lives program provides the training and resources your schools need today.
