FASTER stands for Faculty / Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response.

FASTER is a groundbreaking, non-profit program that gives educators practical and effective violence response training.

Funded by donations, training is provided at NO COST to teachers and administrators with concealed firearms permits.


FASTER saves lives!

The program offers a carefully-structured curriculum offering hands-on training over 3 days. Those who graduate will pass a Law Enforcement Qualification Shoot.

The purpose is not to replace police and EMT's, but to allow teachers and administrators to stop school violence rapidly and render medical aid immediately.

When violence strikes and students' lives are on the line, every second matters. Even though police are only minutes away, already there is faster than a response.​

Our mission is to train Embedded School Protectors. We give scholarships for Advanced Handgun and Trauma First Aid training to faculty, administrators, and school staff in K - 12 schools who have concealed carry permits.

FASTER Utah is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
