As first responders, you are often the one chance for the safety and survival of those who find themselves in harm’s way. Your world is fast-moving and extremely error-intolerant. When the environment turns chaotic and events are changing by the minute, the one element you can—and must—control is yourself.

That is why our services to first responders focus on the knowledge, skills, and responsibilities of risk and error reduction, in order to empower effective mission accomplishment within an acceptable margin of safety. We offer far more than traditional safety or team training. Instead, we help you identify personal error patterns and develop a set of specific countermeasures. We teach individuals and teams to recognize and respond not only to the requirements of the mission, but also to the risks posed to the mission by multiple internal and external factors.

Emergency Medical Service (EMS)

The recent spike in EMS accidents has resulted in a barrage of regulatory and media attention. Many see technology, proceduralization, and more regulation as the only solutions—we respectfully disagree. Through our work in high-demand, error-intolerant environments such as combat aviation and search and rescue operations, we’ve proven that personal responsibility and individual commitment to continuous self improvement is a far more effective long-term solution.

Our personal accountability and team training approach is effective in reducing human error, providing EMS professionals the opportunity to enhance their safety culture immediately, with the resources at hand.

Wildland and Structural Firefighting

According to research in the International Fire Service Journal of Leadership & Management, nearly half of all line-of-duty deaths are attributable to factors under the direct control of the individual. Our human factors courses aim to arm firefighters with the tools to fight fire aggressively while simultaneously taking greater control of their own risk factors.
