2018 Press Release - Operation Safe Schools
OPERATION SAFE SCHOOLSOn Scene Training Associates, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of Operation Safe Schools, a program designed to secure our schools and keep children safe. Most current programs only address one element, such as active shooter training or security assessment. The distinct advantage of this comprehensive program is that it will cover multiple facets including safeguarding response, interim field medical care, innovative security measures and procedures, along with risk management. Training will be offered to teachers, school staff, law enforcement agencies, and fire and EMS departments.
Scott Trethaway, II will serve as the Project Lead and National Program Development Coordinator. Mr. Trethaway’s impressive career as a law enforcement officer and as a firefighter/paramedic spans over 25 years. His knowledge and experience is critical in providing insight into risk assessment, patient care, and training. Additional professionals are being added to our project team and will be announced shortly as well.
The mission of On Scene Training Associates is to provide emergency responders of all levels with the most up-to-date and cutting edge training courses and consulting services available. This is accomplished through interactive classroom presentations as well as realistic hands-on training opportunities. The OSTA staff is also experienced in performing SOP and Emergency Plan reviews. Through this established training and assessment platform, the Operations Safe Schools program has the potential to serve as a national model for dealing with school violence, active shooters, and terrorist related incidents.
