Crisis Isn’t A Choice.
Response Is.

In partnership with The “I Love U Guys” Foundation

The “I Love U Guys” Foundation’s programs for crisis response and post-crisis reunification are used in more than 30,000 schools, districts, agencies and organizations around the world. We partner with The "I Love U Guys" Foundation to combine their research-based best practices — created by school administrators, psychologists, public space safety experts and families — with our decades of first-hand experience as first responders. Together, with their team, we’ve created a life-saving curriculum to provide a hands-on training approach to School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management, better known as the SSAVEIM Program.

I Love U Guys Foundation


of public schools reported they had a plan for procedures to be performed in the event of an incident. But many of these schools have never practiced the plan, had it reviewed by local authorities and haven't consulted with local fire, EMS and police.

Time is your biggest enemy
when it comes to saving lives.

Every minute wasted potentially means more loss of children’s lives, more bloodshed, more rounds fired and more chaos. Is your school prepared with a safety and violent event incident management plan?

In the event of a school crisis or emergency, the most important response is a reliable reunification of students with their parent/guardian. A successful plan and implementation will also require partnerships with all responding agencies participating in an emergency response.


An active attack can happen at any time, and when that happens at school, everyone should be prepared with a violent event incident management plan to handle them safely and effectively. It’s important that all personnel including administrators, staff, and especially teachers are aware of the Standard Response Protocol® and Standard Reunification Method®


Violent event incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly — that’s why it's important to have a safe and sound plan on paper to be prepared. The more prepared you are, the better chance you have of minimizing impact and saving lives. A key element to practicing a safe and sound plan is to ensure it is reviewed by local law enforcement who can help your personnel stay ready for real scenarios.

Protect Our Children, Protect Our Schools.

We provide hands-on training for schools and public safety responders to help them prepare for school safety and violent event incident management — and in return, they can then prepare others. Our unique SSAVEIM Program utilizes educational materials from The “I Love U Guys Foundation” and our direct techniques to teach instructors via a Train-the-Trainer model. Ultimately, this prepares instructor trainees to train others for response to an active attack in order to secure students, identify the threat, provide medical intervention and reunify students with parents.

Train side-by-side with YOUR local
emergency responders

We show school personnel, police, fire, and EMS how to work as one team and save every life that can be saved.

In our program, school personnel will train side-by-side with their local fire, EMS and law enforcement. This validated and integrated management process reduces emergency responders’ time to neutralize the threat, medically intervene to promote survivability, conduct emotional appropriate searches and interviews and assist with parent reunifications.

As a first responder who has been on the scene at multiple active violence events, I cannot stress enough how important it is to not only have a plan and to be prepared, but to work with your local first responders. At C3, the first responders train side-by-side with personnel. I know from experience that when we all work together, we work faster and more efficiently, giving us the best opportunity to save as many lives as possible. -Robert, First Responder at the Douglas County STEM Incident
