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.

Arming Teachers, a Countermeasure to Active Killers

by Ron Borsch

As a retired law enforcement officer, in my second career of training police officers, one of my proprietary courses was Tactical 1st Responder©, the responses to Rapid Mass Murder©, which was eventually attended officers from ten states.

Having researched Rapid Mass Murder© by the random acts of active killers back to 1975, I discovered that the primary target of this type of homicide was educational facilities. For example, three schools out of 10 locations in 2016 so far, (with 4 planned but aborted).

FASTER Saves Lives receives state funding

Now in our fifth year of training school staff, the FASTER Saves Lives program is changing the way schools fulfill their obligation for the safety and security of their staff and students. The class is designed by John Benner of Tactical Defense Institute (TDI), who I believe to be our nation’s top expert on active killers, especially in school environments. It is taught by TDI and Chris Cerino of Cerino Training Group.

1st Time Ever - FASTER Saves Lives class opens to the public

The FASTER Saves Lives program is opening a very limited number of spots in our July 20-22 class to the public.  Churches, businesses, colleges and other public areas are experiencing the same violence we have seen in our K-12 schools.  This 3 1/2 day FASTER Level 1 class will prepare you and your family to survive these most horrific events.

Created by concerned parents, law enforcement, and nationally-recognized safety and medical experts, FASTER is a groundbreaking, nonprofit program that gives you practical violence response training.

Buckeye Firearms Foundation's FASTER Saves Lives program poised to set new records

by Jim Irvine

I always intend to do updates through the summer as we do FASTER Saves Lives classes. There are so many great stories to tell, but I never find the time to write it down.

FASTER is an acronym for Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response. It’s a program started after the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown Connecticut that helps schools be prepared to stop armed killers.
