Every Day

Right now kids, teens and adults are being trained in the Standard Response Protocol or the Standard Reunification Method.

Every Way

Programs and training evolve every way through collaboration, research, evaluation and heart.

Everyone

Even if an organization doesn’t adopts our programs, if we ignited a conversation that's a mission win.

Everywhere

For us, being a catalyst is the real end game. Together, we can change the culture through meaningful conversations and clear action.

A Voice

Emily gave us a voice. And from the classroom she told us what to say. "I love you guys."

Proven Programs for School and Community Safety

Developed hand-in-hand with school administrators, psychologists, public space safety experts, families, and first responders, our programs are both research and experience-based.

They are used in more than 50,000 schools, districts, departments, agencies, organizations, and municipalities around the world and are available at no cost. Not even an email address.

The Standard Response Protocol

The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) provides consistent, clear, shared language and actions among all students, staff and first responders for all hazards. It is action based, and allows organizations, first responders, students, and parents to share a specific vocabulary for quick and coordinated action. It also acts as a tool for training which develops the muscle memory necessary to respond appropriately in moments of crisis.

The SRP is based on five actions: Hold, Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter.

The Standard Reunification Method

Reunifying students with parents or guardians is a critical component of emergency response, but one that is often overlooked. The Standard Reunification Method (SRM) provides school and district safety teams with proven methods to plan, practice, and achieve a successful reunification amid what can be chaotic and stressful circumstances.

SRM - Reunification Exercise

The Standard Reunification Method - Reunification Exercise (SRM-REx) brings our team to your community to work with all of the stakeholders and conduct an actual reunification exercise. The two-day program includes classroom training, tabletop exercises, and functional demonstrations and exercises designed to give you the skills and confidence to successfully reunify families following an emergency.

Together-REx (T-REx)

School safety software providers have utilized the Standard Reunification Method in their applications for years. We are piloting a new program with Raptor Technologies, T-REx (yes, we know, but we couldn’t resist). T-REx is a unique opportunity to learn the practical mechanics of the SRM and how it works using mobile and desktop technology.

T-REx follows the same agenda as the 2-day SRM-REx workshop and functional exercises, with the added bonus of seeing how the process works with technology.

School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM)

Reunification after a violent event is a unique event. In nearly all other reunification scenarios, the school or district remains the authority. Not so in a violent event. School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM) is a 1-day course training school administrators, teachers, and public safety together.

The SSAVEIM course is delivered by our Mission Partner C3 Pathways and the National Center for Integrated Emergency Response (NCIER).

The Briefings

Hey. Focus.
This is the real deal.

The Briefings,
A National Symposium

The Briefings are a nationally recognized school and community safety symposium. We explore timely topics such as being prepared for small or large incidents, threat management, lessons learned from prior incidents, recovery after a traumatic experience, as well as training on the Standard Response Protocol and Standard Reunification Method.

Each event is unique offering the stories, insights, next steps and lessons learned across the entire spectrum of safety. From prevention through recovery, thought leaders, practitioners and survivors bring you effective methods for keeping schools and communities safe. Participants take away actionable insights they can implement immediately.

Our goal with The Briefings is to bring together an array of leaders, change makers, and explorers to share their knowledge and experience so we can learn from each other, make strong connections, and take away actionable insights and that help advance our collective mission of safer schools and communities.

The Specific Topic

In the broad sense, the topic is always safety – physical and emotional safety of students, staff and the community. Our particular emphasis at The Briefings is on the ways we can prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies. The basis for this is our work developing the Standard Response Protocol and the Standard Reunification Method, and The Briefings always include training on the SRP and the SRM.

Additionally, The Briefings bring to light, timely topics, new insights and fresh perspectives from our ever-growing network and the ever-evolving world of public safety.
