Jim Satterfield

Firestorm® is America’s CRISIS COACH®. Learn from the best. Attendees will develop a WPV Behavioral Risk Threat Assessment Program. Every crisis is a human crisis. While Firestorm® uses this phrase to focus the impacts of disasters, crises, and violence on people, it also applies to understanding the likelihood and immediacy of events. Whether violence or cyber-bullying, there are warning signs and indicators. Missing recognition of behaviors of concern or failing to listen to what is being said empowers escalation to violence. Knowing before the gun comes to work is a critical intelligence planning responsibility for every company. The earlier a problem is detected, the less impact it will have.

It should be the aim of every company to create a culture where safety from violence is a common goal of both employees and leadership. To achieve such a culture, warning signs must be recognized and understood; everyone must know how to report behaviors of concern; there must be procedures in place to investigate when there are concerns; and trained school employees must know when to conduct a behavioral risk assessment and have the necessary resources in place to do so.

Attendees of this session will:

  • Receive a one year license for the Firestorm Behavioral Risk and Threat Assessment Program (BERTHA™) at no cost.
  • Learn behavioral risk and threat assessment program components
  • Review case study analysis of violence behaviors
  • Develop a predictive intelligence network
