Firestorm Launches Sharetheformula.com Website and Campaign to Prevent School and Workplace Violence
On May 10, 2018, an experienced and prestigious group of experts gathered together at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. to discuss the plague of deadly weapons violence in our schools. Since that time, an initiative to the spread the message of prevention has been launched.
Firestorm has invested more than 10 years of research to develop the formula for school and workplace violence prevention.
The Virginia Tech, Parkland, and other school shootings were preventable. There is a clear call to action, and there is a readily available solution.
Discussions must focus on a true solution to school violence.
The key to change is implementing a process for identifying those on a path to violence and intervention before the gun comes to school.
The school violence solution is behavior, not guns. The solution can be found in understanding behavior, not adding modalities to limit casualties. When asked, every school states, “we have something.” Something is not enough. Looking at banning certain types of ﬁrearms, arming teachers, or active shooter training is something — if properly implemented, that may reduce the number of deaths —but is not a total solution.
Without a total solution, the frequency of these events will continue to increase. We must shift our focus away from guns. Any focus on ﬁrearms, or other Last Stand™ eﬀorts, distracts the discussion from a solution to treat the real cause, the disease.
We must respond when behavioral warning signs ﬁrst arise before the violent act occurs. Without this change, we will continue to see more school violence and loss of life in our nation’s schools. No one wants to call a family and share that their child is not coming home from school today.
