K-12 Administrators did not sign up to be Security Directors, Safety Supervisors or Emergency Managers

We help you create exceptionally Safe and Prepared Schools without the stress, complexity and hassle 


Altaris has been very helpful in taking our safety and security planning to a new level. I have been impressed with their level of knowledge regarding safety and security. They work well with all stakeholder groups. They are accessible 24-7 and understand the realities of how schools function. Dr. Brendan Lyons

Superintendent, Arlington Central School District

Develop confident and capable staff, rock solid emergency plans and dramatically safer schools with a done-for-you K-12 Emergency Management Program by Altaris.

Let’s face it, when you signed up to be an educator the responsibility of being a safety supervisor, emergency manager or director of security was not part of the equation. But, as with all educators, the safety of the school population is your number one priority.

Virtually every district suffers from the same challenges that keep administrators up a night including:

  • feeling insecure that their buildings were truly safe
  • not knowing if they were doing enough and were truly capable of managing a serious critical incident
  • how to appropriately train and prepare your staff to respond in the event of an emergency

There is a wealth of information available on the internet or from local cooperatives and some of it is quite good. But as a K-12 administrator, you face tremendous time and workload challenges and simply don’t have the time and expertise to continually manage an effective Safety, Security & Emergency Management Program in your schools.

But how can you make this happen?

You don’t. We do.

Emergency Management Program

Because the majority of active shooter incidents is generally over prior to the arrival of emergency responders, it is important that school staff and students understand their roles and responsibilities in emergency situations. Even in cases where a police officer is on site during an emergency, school staff must understand that they may be in a position to make life or death decisions for themselves and/or others. School staff must have proper training regarding their school’s emergency plan. They must also be aware of the Incident Command System and their roles and responsibilities. Most importantly, they must be provided with a variety of options for survival.
