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

by Joe Eaton

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.

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.

Cedarville University trustees vote to allow faculty and staff to carry concealed on campus

Cedarville University trustees have approved a plan that makes theirs the first college in Ohio to allow concealed carry on campus.

From Cedars, the campus newspaper:

The policy, a first among Ohio colleges, “authorizes the President to grant permission to faculty, staff, and trustees with concealed carry licenses to carry a concealed handgun on campus under approved terms and/or conditions consistent with state law.”
