Our Mission


Risk and Response Education

Preparedness Without Paranoia® is not simply active shooter training, we understand that Active Threat is not confined to active shooters; it includes insider threat, terrorism, and workplace violence. We believe that the best defense to any active threat is a prepared and engaged citizenry who operate in a soft target environment with a hard target mindset.

Awareness is the ability to recognize potential threats before they happen and to recognize risk factors that may lead individuals to commit a violent attack.   We address topics that include types of common threats, types of weapons used in attacks, locations and types of attacks, motivation of attacks, and increasing one’s situational awareness.

Developing a preparedness mindset.

Enable action without hesitation.


Active Threat Readiness

Awareness:  The ability to recognize potential threats before they happen, and see risk factors that may lead to a dangerous incident or violent attack.

Preparedness:  Comprehensive planning and rehearsal for threats posed by fire, natural disasters, active shooters, or other instances of violence.

Response:  A series of actions taken by organizations and individuals in response to an ongoing active threat with the intent of saving lives and ending the threat.

Recovery:  A range of actions post event including medical care, work environment changes, change in response planning, temporary relocation during restoration, and organizational and community support in the process of healing.

Helping Prepare

PWP has assembled an extraordinary team of training, security, and preparedness experts and offer a Preparedness Review approach to assist schools, hospitals, businesses, and organizations in navigating the myriad of security, emergency, and safety plans, regulations, compliance, and audit requirements.

The approach is not bound by a template or checklist, but rather by a tailored examination of existing conditions and potential vulnerabilities which could be disrupted.
