Our Mission


Risk and Response Education

Preparedness Without Paranoia® is not simply a training program about when bad things happen to good people, nor is it only confined to the threat of active shooters in our schools, workplaces or places of worship and healing.  It is a way of thinking about what to do, and how to do it if an ordinary day turns extraordinary. It means understanding what threat looks like and what to do when you see it.  

It means having a culture of engagement not just of reporting-because most people do not want to report because they think they may be wrong or it is not their business.  We find ourselves at the intersection of fear and fact and what that means is developing the way to have informed and thoughtful conversations that extend from the classroom to the boardroom. Community based, common sense approaches to preparedness will make a difference.

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.
