Safe Kids H.E.R.O. Program

Experts in education, law enforcement, and child psychology designed the H.E.R.O. Program curriculum to be the first age-appropriate and trauma-informed way to teach students, as young as preschool, how to prevent and survive violence. The teacher-led curriculum provides interactive narratives, lesson plans, exercises, and school-wide resources to make everyone on campus feel safe and be safe.

More Than Just a Training or Drill for Teachers and Staff

The H.E.R.O. program creates a lifelong skill for all members of the school community to effectively prevent or react to a violent situation, whether on or off-campus. Unlike other training programs, the H.E.R.O. program does not use a hyper-realistic methodology in any of its instruction.

When your district or school purchases any Raptor software solution, you receive the H.E.R.O. Program for one school year at no cost and additional years at preferred pricing


How the H.E.R.O Program is Different

Experts recommend schools and districts avoid traumatizing, hyper-realistic active shooter training and drills. This leaves most school administrators struggling to complete mandatory training for teachers and lockdown drills for students, while still making them meaningful for everyone involved.

The H.E.R.O. Program uses a measured approach for preschool through 12th grade students that is uniquely based upon the age of the student, in addition to training designed specifically for educators. Through professional development, lesson plans, interactive empowering exercises, and trauma-informed drills, teachers and students practice learned skills in a safe and contextual environment.
