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 ALICE or other training programs, the H.E.R.O. Program does not use scary videos, physical harm, force training, negative reinforcement, or anxiety-inducing 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.

The H.E.R.O. Program includes:

  • Professional development with digital, live virtual, or in-person training options for teachers and staff, with the ability to earn credits through Brandman University

  • Dedicated access to safety experts and year-round program support

  • Drill and Scenario Guide that includes 4 trauma-informed scenarios

  • Student Accessibility Guide for adoption and modifications for special needs students

  • 5 interactive lesson plans that meet English Language Arts standards, allowing program instruction without adding additional hours

  • Community and family resources, including parent information sessions and a Parent Companion Guide to follow along with their students at home

  • H.E.R.O. designation for your schools

  • Administrator and teacher resources including rubrics and training records
