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.
