On May 10th at 9 a.m., Firestorm founders and executive team will host a roundtable discussion on best-practices and solutions for averting school violence at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

The panel is expected to include experts in behavioral risk management, crisis management, and technology, and educators and victim families. Topics to be covered include identifying those on a path to violence and strategies for intervention to prevent guns or other weapons from ever making it into a school.

In conjunction with the roundtable event and in an effort to change future outcomes, Firestorm will release to schools at no cost its best practices formula First Look/Last Stand™ – a nine-step process that every school in America can use to prevent violence. First Look/Last Stand is designed by the crisis management team that led support after the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings, and can leverage artificial intelligence combined with a rapid school coordination team to identify and screen concerning behaviors in real time.
