On July 26th 2018 we held a community training that was focused on the lessons learned during three school shootings that occurred over the past 10 years in different parts of the United States. The goal was to bring a cross section of our community together to focus on prevention and safety. We had over 220 people in attendance from various professions; EMS, Police, Fire, Social Workers, Politicians, Attorneys, Moms & Dads.
Their mission is to support school crisis prevention, response, and recovery, and to protect every school and every student, every day. The organisation was founded by Alissa Parker and Michelle Gay. Alissa and Michelle both had children that died in the Sandy Hook Tragedy.
Safe and Sound Schools offers a wide range of free programs and resources to help you improve the school safety in your community.
