Inspired by tragedy in our home state, we set out to create a comprehensive training to address mass casualty loss, as well as the loss of everyday accident. We partner with school boards and school districts across the country to deliver the first-of-its-kind safety training designed specifically addressing the threats to and vulnerabilities of schools. This state-of-the-art program is built with the educator in mind, focused on the areas of concern when it comes to keeping your students, your employees, and our schools safe.

From the everyday accidental injury to the unthinkable tragedy, you will be equipped to understand the threats, the scale of what they’re costing us, and most importantly, how to prevent them.

With some of the brightest and most dedicated professionals in threat safety, risk management and behavior health professionals, including Defend System’s founder, Brink Fidler, we have created a relevant, insightful, actionable and truly effective online Learning Management System.

Online Safety Training

Our training is unique because we use dramatic, real-world scenarios and firsthand accounts of actual events to impact behavior from within, not just an instructor sharing information that only affects knowledge. Our approach is proven to affect behavior and organizational culture.

Our training works best when followed according to the sequence below:
