What is more important and more valuable than a student’s life?  What is more important than an employee’s life? What is more important than any human life? Cameras to record the violence? A PC for every student? A football game? Coffee for Faculty/Staff? Hundreds of other lower priority purchases?  None of these are more important or more valuable than a human life, yet Education Leaders continue to fund hundreds of projects BEFORE funding is invested in proven strategies and tools for saving the lives and saving futures of students and others. How many more lives must be lost and futures ruined before Education Leaders adaptRead More →

The definition of safety is: state of being safe; freedom from the occurrence or risk of injury, danger, loss… which means preventing the occurrence of risk or threat…not reacting to or hiding from the riskRead More →

As you know, I am passionate about Preventing incidents and tragedies in schools, colleges, organizations, governments, and communities. My passion and Awareity’s extensive research into hundreds and hundreds of previous incidents and tragedies led to Awareity developing the world’s leading Collecting, Assessing, and Connecting the Dots Platform which is equipping hundreds of early adopter and industry leading organizations to eliminate gaps, silos, and dangerous disconnects.
