- By Kristal Kuykendall
School safety provider Raptor Technologies and The “I Love U Guys” Foundation will integrate the nonprofit’s practical methodologies with Raptor’s software to offer a joint training program to teach schools how to standardize safety procedures and reunifications following emergencies, according to a news release.
The partnership will combine The “I Love U Guys” Foundation’s widely acclaimed methods for school emergencies, the so-called Standard Response Protocol and the Standard Reunification Method, with Raptor’s Emergency Management software, the organizations said.
The resulting “fully integrated training program” will be offered to K–12 schools “to help standardize school safety procedures, enabling schools to learn and practice in a unified manner,” according to the announcement.
“We are forging new ground by bringing together this combination of non-profit, for-profit, and education sectors for the greater good,” said John-Michael Keyes, executive director of The “I Love U Guys” Foundation. “Raptor understands this balance, and their software is closely aligned with our methodologies, and we are thrilled to bring this level of training to our schools.”
Raptor’s Emergency Management software is used by over 5,000 schools nationwide to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies, the company said.
“Learning the methodologies and applying them with the technology through functional exercises creates a lasting imprint on participants that will serve them well throughout the response and recovery of an emergency,” Raptor CEO Gray Hall said of the new collaboration.
The two-day training program is created specifically for school district administrators, safety staff, first responders, and local emergency agencies, according to the news release.
