Remember that"We don't rise to the level of our expectations; we fall to the level of our training", (Archilochos, Greek warrior/poet).  Training is critical for a successful emergency response.

Standing Stone  announces that in June 2015  Intermediate Unit 8  selected us as a preferred vendor for school security and emergency planning.  Information regarding our services will be available soon on the IU's web site or you can contact us directly.

Ian Thompson presented to the Multi - INT Tradecraft Community of Practice (MINT-T CoP) Symposium on June 24, 2015 in Washington DC.  The Symposium focused on how the Intelligence Community to can prevent and respond to disasters threatening our country.

Standing Stone's Ian Thompson and Jeff Donaldson presented at the 2015 South Central Mountains Regional Local Emergency Planning Committee's (LEPC) Summit on July 31 . 

Summer 2015, Standing Stone is offering Emergency Operations Plan reviews and reorganizationand follow on support to school districts in Pennsylvania.  Standing Stone will review and reorganize your current EOP so that it meets State (PEMA) and Federal (FEMA) safe schools planning requirements. Our consultants will identify items from the existing plan for inclusion in the updated EOP, recommend areas that need improvement and then review withe Plan with the District.

Standing Stone consultant Michael Biking has developed Active Shooter training for Small Rural Schools.  This training was developed specifically for active shooter incidents where only one or two officers will be initially responding.

Are you building or renovating a school? Standing Stone can work with the District and the Design Team to insure the security for the school meets current "best" practices. Unfortunately many new and renovated schools continue to "design in" security and safety problems. This often leads to costly retrofits after the school is built. Our security experts can make sure this doesn't happen in you school.

Call us today to learn more about these programs and how we can help protect you, your property and your valuable reputation!
