C3 Pathways is a unique emergency response training, exercise, and consulting organization with deep roots in public safety and technology. C3 Pathways blends real-world live action and the Imagineering of computer simulation to all levels of training for today’s law enforcement, fire, and EMS first responders -- integrated with 911, communications, hospitals, emergency management, and all public safety professionals.
Originally founded in 2004 as FutureFD, the Orlando-based company was expanded in 2012 and became C3 Pathways to bring a new scope of offerings to clients. Himself a retired fire chief and paramedic, CEO Bill Godfrey explains:
“We are preparing responders from all walks of life whose emergency response risks require planning, training, and exercises to be ready for whatever they may face. In addition to public safety and emergency management, our clients include transit and transportation providers, utilities, industry, health care, and academic institutions.”
“The only way to master major incident response is to practice. Sometimes live practice isn’t an option because of things like service disruption, publicity concerns, manpower, cost, operational security, or it’s just too dangerous. We can address all those challenges while still providing realistic, high-fidelity, repeatable practice.”
C3 Pathways customizes its solutions to align with its client’s mission, objectives, and budget. Traditional classroom training, hands-on courses, simulation, and live-action blended with simulation are all available. Special solutions and consulting can focus on any aspect of public safety preparedness.
C3 Pathways makes responders better. Major emergency incidents require aptitudes, skills, planning, resources, collaboration, and practice.
