FASTER - Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response

Everyone agrees that safety training is important for our schools, but in an active killer situation, the emergency response must happen fast to save lives.

This is why Buckeye Firearms Foundation has launched a program called FASTER to provide violence response training to teachers and administrators. FASTER stands for Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response.

Buckeye Firearms Foundation's FASTER Saves Lives program featured on CBS Evening News

On Tuesday, September 19, CBS Evening News'  Nikki Battiste reported on Buckeye Firearms Foundation's FASTER Saves Lives program.

The report marks the first time a national news service has done in person coverage of the FASTER Saves Lives training. We have seen print coverage from FOX News, CNN and others in the past, but the Level 2 class this past July was the first time a national news program has sent someone to report in person on this important training program.
