While a five person team of school security experts has been working diligently to conduct research for and to edit the new book Staying Alive – How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters, the award winning Safe Havens International video crew has been filming and editing a series of powerful and informative school security training videos that outline research based concepts such as mental simulation, pattern matching and recognition, and the window of life.
As part of our non-profit mission Safe Havens is making the results of this $250,000 video project available to schools at no cost via the Safe Havens International website. Just click on the book cover on the home page and you will be taken to the Staying Alive – How to Act Fast and Survive Deadly Encounters companion video page. With run times between three and ten minutes each, these captivating videos will make an excellent staff development tool. The videos that have been posted are still being edited to correct some technical issues such as sound quality and transitions, and additional videos will be posted soon.
Please take a few minutes to watch one or two of these videos and we believe you will decide to view most of them. We would also appreciate your assistance in helping to spread the word about these awesome videos so more people can learn to stay alive and survive deadly encounters.
