School nurses, teachers, administration personnel, maintenance/facility staff. Course is valid for instructors.
For several years we have addressed how to prevent and respond to a crisis or mass casualty incident in our schools, churches, or other public setting where many people assemble. This course will give you and your staff the skills and tactics you can use to save life and dramatically change the outcome for a critically injured person in less than 60 seconds. When the crisis event occurs medical first responders are trained NOT to be present in the danger area until the crisis scene is safe and secure. This could be up to an hour or more. When a medical emergency occurs, SUCCESS or FAILURE will be up to the person(s) on scene not professional first responders. In other words, YOU are the first responder! 911 personnel are the second responders!
The presentation and information are invaluable! The real world scenarios are educational and nerve wracking, which is exactly what we teachers and staff need to be exposed to and taught to handle!! Thank you for all you do to open eyes and minds to this very serious issue!!! August 6, 2012
I totally dreaded going to Friday’s professional development for Sedalia #200 Public School. I was very nervous about how the topic would be presented and I did NOT want to participate in the simulated intruder scenarios. HOWEVER, today I am REALLY GLAD that I attended. I left feeling empowered and grateful about what I learned. It was one of the best professional development trainings that I have ever attended.
This was amazing! I think every teacher should take this class. It prepares you much better than any college class I ever took!
Brilliant!!! The best hands on training and most useful I have ever had!! October 19, 2012
Excellent course! The presentation was informative, interesting and eye opening!! The afternoon session was so beneficial. Hands on practice made me feel more empowered and safe!! Instructor was very knowledgeable, prepared and entertaining! I am so glad I attended the course!! I highly recommend it! August 6, 2012
Great information!! Instructor did a great job of keeping it interesting. Loved the “hands on” part. I feel this should be required for all classroom teachers. February 25, 2012
Information was very well presented!! The role playing scenario brought home to me how long three minutes actually is when you are scared!!! So empowering to be able to protect your room more than by just turning off the lights and locking the door! Excellent!! January 2, 2013
My background in teaching in a correctional facility and Division of Youth Services facility has not prepared me for an intruder in a public school setting. This course has done that. I now feel more confident in working with my colleagues in keeping my students safe and secure. February 2, 2013
I did not take this course seriously when I signed up for it. I had an eye opener after being involved. I had been so naïve, possibly at the expense of other’s lives. These men did an awesome job waking me up!
Instructor did an excellent job with this inservice. This was by far the best inservice I have attended in over 14 years. Great Job!! I would recommend this to any school district. February 6, 2012
This is not a basic first aid course! The concepts presented are based upon the most current and innovative techniques currently in use by the United States Military as dictated by the Tactical Combat Casualty Care model as well as civilian EMS trauma guidelines as used by our current emergency response systems. No previous medical training is necessary to participate.

Regarding our Training Philosophy and Practices:
Our training staff is composed of professional and experienced coaches and we are students ourselves.
We believe in treating everyone respectfully and as adult learners. Our coaches participate in the learning process and we use a building block approach to solidify skills before moving toward more advanced concepts.
We do not believe in “check the box” training nor do we believe in “lowest common denominator” training. Individual assistance is always available.
Those who are not safe and conscientious with their equipment, those who are not willing to be open-minded, receive new information and try new concepts, and those who are not capable of keeping their ego in check should not enroll in our trainings.
