I have moved from fear because of what happened at Newtown to knowing I can increase safety layers. Now I have tools to help me & I feel like I can talk to someone if I have a problem.

I have never had a presenter who was so knowledgable on the topic. I learned more from this 2-day course than my 16 years in my law enforcement and teaching career.

The Newtown tragedy has been haunting me every day. We are so much like that school. Today helped me understand how I can make my building more secure. I'm going to do a school vulnerability assessment & also offer to do one for other buildings in our district. Hard to explain but your personal investment in this Don is so clear. Keep sharing & educating.
