)-- Delta Situational Awareness Training, popularly known as DeSAT, has introduced the SAFER training programs for effectively implementing Workplace Violence, Violent Intruder and Active Shooter preparedness. These programs are designed to offer corporate, school, government, healthcare and other organizations a complete training program.
Christopher Pessinis, CEO of DeSAT, said, “After the reprehensible act in Orlando last week, it is more clear than ever that these types of scenarios will not be going away soon. With the SAFER programs, we introduced an easy to remember and easy to implement training regimen to organizations of all sizes. SAFER’s acronym incorporate the essential principles of understanding what to do if such an event unfolds:
“Be Situationally Aware of your surroundings, take Flight if it is safe to do so, Evade your attacker if you cannot leave, and Rush your attacker- if you are left with no choice. You’re SAFER with DeSAT.
“DeSAT is very pleased to offer this dynamic yet easy-to-remember program to our clients. In utilizing best-practices, and we are in lock-step with current, national standards. What’s more, SAFER is designed in such a way that it covers all aspects of our training- and provides the concerned individual with the ability to quickly make sound survival decisions in a very compressed timeframe.”
In keeping the nomenclature easy to remember, DeSAT is offering two modular courses to address organizational training: SAFER-1 and SAFER-2.
SAFER-1 is a multi-faceted program for an organization’s employees. This course encompasses the essential tenets of workplace violence and active shooter preparedness. The information in this course is invaluable, and transferable – no matter where you are: at work, school, or a public gathering place. SAFER-1 provides you with the tools, information, and mindset to be prepared in the event of workplace violence, violent intruder, or an active shooter event.
SAFER-2 shifts the focus to Management implementation of the infrastructure that organizations utilize to implement SAFER-1 in the workplace: preparedness, communications, incident plan (actions to take during an incident), training, post-incident recovery, employees and operations. In offering the new SAFER programs, DeSAT provides an easy-to-associate platform for individuals to effectively manage the situation, provide immediate steps to increase the odds of survival, and teach employees and management crucial techniques and strategies for when such a crisis arises.
Mr. Pessinis went on to say, “The critical advantage of DeSAT’s SAFER program is that it can be utilized as an adjunct to an existing workplace violence program, or implemented as a stand-alone within an institution. The staff at DeSAT is very proud of the fact that we have devised a smart, adaptable training regimen that many organizations can seamlessly incorporate into their workplace.”
