FEATURES: Built Around You
Personalized Safety Education
Tailored Experiences: We understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work when it comes to safety and emotional well-being. Our assessments allow us to divide students into three specific categories—stable mindset, dynamic mindset, and traumatic mindset—so that they can receive the training that's right for them.
Mindfulness Training: Integrate mindfulness techniques to help students control their emotional states during high-stress situations.
A New Level of Peace of Mind
Comprehensive Emotional Assessments: We ensure that every drill is preceded and followed by emotional assessments. You'll know exactly how your child is impacted by each drill, empowering you to offer the support they need at home.
Open Communication: Parents receive monthly reports, updates, and have direct access to coordinators to voice any concerns or to customize their child's safety training program further.
Empowerment through Education
Professional Development (PD): Before launching our program, teachers receive comprehensive training on how to discuss trauma and apply mindfulness techniques.
Ongoing Support: Teachers are not alone in this journey; they receive ongoing support and advanced training based on each classroom’s unique emotional and psychological profile.
Efficient and Effective School-wide Programs
Streamlined Operations: Our team works in concert with school administrators to ensure that safety education is seamlessly woven into the academic calendar, without taking away from instructional time.
Long-term Planning: Beyond immediate drills, we offer a 1-5 year strategic plan to ensure that emotional and safety education is constantly updated and relevant.
Enhanced Community Safety
Collaboration: We work closely with law enforcement agencies to ensure our programs are up-to-date with the latest safety protocols.
Community Outreach: Our program includes optional sessions where law enforcement can engage with the community, fostering trust and collaborative spirit.

Frequently Asked Questions How do you assess the emotional state of each student?
Our specialized emotional assessment uses scientifically validated indicators to gauge a student's emotional readiness for a lockdown drill. This ensures that each student receives a lockdown drill experience tailored to their emotional well-being.
How are the assessments used in practice?
After conducting the initial emotional assessments, we categorize students into Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 statuses. Each tier receives a different level of drill and personalized attention to ensure maximum benefit and minimum emotional stress.
What does "personalized 'Trauma Education' curriculum" mean?
Personalized Trauma Education involves creating unique educational experiences based on the emotional assessments. For example, Tier 1 students can participate in a more rigorous drill while Tier 3 students might be pulled out of drills altogether for individualized guidance.
What's involved in the "Lockdown Drill"?
Our Lockdown Drill is a comprehensive exercise involving simulated emergency situations. It's conducted in coordination with teachers, administrators, and, where applicable, local law enforcement to ensure a holistic approach to safety.
How do you ensure teacher and administrator engagement?
We start from the top down, first addressing teacher and administrator SEL (Social Emotional Learning) before moving on to students. We also offer ongoing training, resources, and support to ensure successful implementation of our program.
What is the "Final Report," and who sees it?
The Final Report is a comprehensive summary that includes emotional assessments, drill effectiveness, and recommendations for future actions. This is typically shared with school administrators and may be shared in part or whole with teachers, law enforcement, and parents as deemed appropriate.
How does your program interact with law enforcement?
Law enforcement plays an essential role in our program, helping us to coordinate drills and providing valuable feedback for future preparedness. Their involvement ensures our drills are as realistic and useful as possible.
Do you provide any follow-up or ongoing support?
Absolutely, our program includes periodic check-ins and can be supplemented with ongoing professional development sessions for teachers and administrators. We also provide updates and improvements to our curriculum based on the latest research.
How do you address privacy and data security?
We take privacy and data security extremely seriously. All emotional assessments and student data are encrypted and securely stored, accessible only to authorized personnel.
