FASTER stands for Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response.
FASTER training enables teachers, administrators and other school employees to stop school violence quickly and administer medical aid immediately. FASTER is not intended as a replacement for Police and EMTs. Instead, it enables on-site personnel to save lives through prompt action.
When teachers and other school staff are armed, they no longer have only the option of shielding their students with their bodies to protect them from deranged killers, they can protect their students and live.
