The School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM) course is a 8-hour performance level direct delivery course designed to improve incident management and response integration of school personnel and emergency responders (law enforcement, fire, EMS) to violent events in schools. The course provides a validated framework for use by school personnel, law enforcement, fire, and EMS to manage violent event response to improve time to threat neutralization, medical intervention, survivability of victims, and reunification of students with parents.
If you are affiliated with an emergency responder organization such as a fire, police, EMS, or EMA agency, it is mandatory to enroll in BOTH the Active Shooter Incident Management (ASIM) and the School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM) courses. Attending both courses will ensure comprehensive training for your profession.
If a school system employs you, please enroll in the School Safety and Violent Event Incident Management (SSAVEIM) course ONLY. This course is specifically tailored to equip school personnel with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage violent events in schools and reunify children with the appropriate guardians. The ASIM program is not suitable for your specific profession. However, the SSAVEIM program will provide you with a brief introduction to the relevant concepts.
This course emphasizes incident management principles, including command, coordination, communication, collaboration, and resource management, essential for effectively managing violent events such as active shooter incidents in schools.
To ensure a balanced representation of first responder disciplines, we do not publicly list classes on our website. Instead, class scheduling and registration are closely coordinated with the local jurisdiction that requests the training.
