Public, private, and university-level schools

Today's schools face real risks. Prepare your staff with data-driven insights, hands-on training, and confidence that can make a difference when it counts.

Active killer events are often the situations people think of when it comes to school safety and security. They are low-probability, high-consequence scenarios that warrant specific training. Schools and universities also face much more common problems, such as managing large-scale public events, medical emergencies, and mail-born threats. You need be prepared for both.

No matter the risks you face, we can help.  Risk Strategy Group uses a data-driven approach to create training based on real-world information. Your school is empowered by focusing on what matters: identifying your risks and mitigating them through preparedness.
