Film teaches employees to “PREVAIL!” over an active shooter.

Available February 2017

Sollah International and Strategos release video trailer of new workplace survival movie.

“Active shooter.” It’s the phrase no one wants to hear.

Yet, despite confronting it daily in the news, few workplaces are ready to respond, let alone prevail, when a gunman terrorizes a business.

“PREVAIL!™” is about to change that. A video trailer was released Jan. 6 with the video available for distribution and purchase in February.

Created through a partnership between Sollah Interactive and Strategos International, “PREVAIL!™” is a fast-paced, movie-style training that grips viewers and pulls them into a lifelike workplace shooting.

Sollah converted a vacant Midwest office building into a movie set, hired professional actors and spent two weeks documenting the drama.

Vaughn Baker, president of Strategos International, served as the subject-matter expert. Strategos is a master distributor of the training video, which will be available at in February.

“We were on site during the entire filming process, contributed to the script and gave extensive input from our training curriculum,” Baker said.

Sollah, a producer of business and HR videos, searched for an active-shooter expert and eventually connected with Baker.

“They said we were the company they wanted to partner with based on our background in law enforcement, private security and education,” he said.

“We jumped at the chance because there is a great need for workplace-related videos that teach people to do more than hide under their desks and wait to be killed. Statistics show that the odds of surviving with that mentality are very low. Instead, we teach people to prevail.”

The video weaves the drama into questions, instruction and group collaboration. It’s designed for businesses of all sizes, as well as schools and churches, to develop a prevailing plan.

In addition to providing the video, Strategos is offering additional training and on-site consultation for companies that request it.

GSA Contract Gives Agencies Direct Access to Strategos Security Training

Strategos International has secured a General Services Administration (GSA) contract allowing it to directly supply government agencies with security training and consulting.

Strategos has a long history of training and advising federal agencies and the U.S. military. The agreement streamlines the process.

The five-year GSA contract allows agencies to directly arrange security training and consulting with Strategos. Previously, departments could partner with Strategos, but required a lengthier government approval process.

“Strategos and federal agencies share the same goals: protecting citizens, employees and communities,” said Vaughn Baker, president of Strategos.

“This contract with the GSA allows federal departments to more quickly and directly benefit from our security expertise. Of course, agencies will still use competitive bidding to get the best value for their dollar. Taxpayers will benefit from a speedier and more efficient process.”

Through the agreement, agencies will benefit from Strategos’ expertise in subjects including:

  • Tactical training
  • Active shooter training
  • Intruder response
  • Personnel protection
  • Security consulting

“This contract affirms that federal agencies have confidence in our expertise and skills,” Baker said. “We look forward to delivering more training and strengthening our partnership with public servants at all levels of government.”


  • Strategos International has been awarded a five-year GSA Schedule contract: #GS-07F050GA
  • It’s effective immediately.
  • Strategos International’s services are available through the GSA Federal Supply Service (FSS) Schedule #84.
  • GSA Schedule #84 serves the federal buyer relating to total solutions for law enforcement, security, facility management systems, fire, rescue, special purpose clothing, marine craft, and emergency/disaster response schedule.
  • GSA’s Federal Supply Service manages the largest, most diverse and innovative federal marketplace in the world, connecting thousands of federal customers with contractors.
