With crime on the top of everyone’s minds, especially as we listen to the daily or nightly news, it can put our minds at ease that there are professionals in the field who are committed to helping school children and teachers, their families, houses of worship, and community members to plan, be prepared, and safe.
Mike Johnson, the co-founder and CEO of Clearpath EPM, does not want thinking about our daily safety to be scary. Instead of operating from a place of fear, he wants us to approach this from a place of power.
“It is important to understand that a system can be built for any place because it starts with situational awareness, such as entering a building and observing where the exits are. It is about responding as opposed to reacting,” Johnson explains.
“You do not want to be sitting frozen in an outdoor café with bullets flying,” he says. “If something happens know where you are going and what you are going to do. You won’t be a victim because you will have a plan already in place.”
