Firestorm® is the Nation’s Leading Expert in School Safety and Preparedness

Firestorm is currently engaged to help keep hundreds of schools and tens of thousands of students safer. Firestorm® principals and Expert Council members have the strongest credentials in the school safety industry. We have responded to some of the nation’s greatest school tragedies—including Virginia Tech, Columbine, and Platte Canyon. Firestorm’s crisis response experience extends beyond school shootings and includes incidents of: sex abuse, suicide, bullying, hazing, employee/student/domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, drowning, child pornography allegations.

The main take away from all of these tragic events is that there is no single solution to prevention or mitigation. Only through the implementation of a preparedness program, that incorporates assessment, planning, training, and testing, along with the use of equipment, technology and most importantly, human resources, is there the greatest potential to make a difference in the outcome.
