FASTER stands for Faculty & Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response.
Created by concerned parents, law enforcement, and nationally-recognized safety and medical experts, FASTER is a groundbreaking, nonprofit program that gives educators practical violence response training.
Funded by donations, classes are provided at NO COST to your school district or church!
The program offers a carefully-structured curriculum offering over 26 hours of hands-on training over a 3-day class that exceeds the requirements of the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy.
The purpose is not to replace police and EMT, but to allow teachers, administrators, and other personnel on-site to stop school/church violence rapidly and render medical aid immediately.
When violence strikes and students’ lives are on the line, every second matters. Faster response is better response.
FASTER saves lives!
