How the FASTER Program Works

Each school selects staff members who are willing, competent, and capable. Experts on school violence provide training in armed response, crisis management, and emergency medical aid.

The FASTER program pays for tuition and lodging and local school boards authorize these trained staff members to carry firearms in school.
