Symptoms are important warning signs that must be recognized and acted on before things get worse. Symptoms reveal whether you have a cold, flu, covid, or other viruses and what actions to take next. Symptoms reveal what type of cancer you might have, and which immediate actions need to be taken.
Symptoms also reveal why record levels of violence, suicides, overdoses, shootings, and other incidents are occurring in schools, colleges, workplaces, and communities. Symptoms reveal why organizations and communities are overwhelmed and why they are facing more and more costly responses, long-term recoveries, liabilities, lawsuits, and numerous other unwanted consequences. Symptoms reveal things are getting worse in organizations and communities because they are missing an organized, trained, and connected First Preventers effort to complement their First Responders efforts.
Some of the “symptoms” related to pre-incident prevention failures include:
- Soaring numbers of at-risk individuals that are overwhelming resources and teams in schools, colleges, workplaces, and communities.
- Finding out after incidents, tragedies, and near misses there were more than enough warning signs the at-risk individuals exhibited and sources in your community observed and/or reported, but they were missed or scattered.
- Finding out after incidents that known at-risk individuals fell through the cracks due to numerous silos with collecting, funneling, sharing, assessing, and connecting all the dots (at-risk individuals, warning signs, internal sources, community sources, internal resources, external resources, etc.) resulting in failed intervention efforts.
- Fears are increasing for students, employees, and others due to shootings, violence, hate crimes, fights, bullying, suicides, and other incidents that result in serious challenges for learning, teaching, and working environments.
- Well-being concerns for children and adults due to increasing depression, isolation, suicidal ideation, and mental health involving students, employees, and community members.
- Distrust concerns with administration/management, security, human resources, law enforcement, and others because appropriate and timely actions are not being taken to help at-risk individuals and to ensure everyone is safe.
- After incidents and tragedies, even more at-risk individuals need help due to trauma, fear, guilt, depression, mental health, regret, and many other problems and consequences that can go on for years to come.
These and many other symptoms must be addressed immediately by experts who understand what actions are needed to address the symptoms and improve your First Preventers and Pre-Incident Prevention results.
While most organizations and communities have invested significant time, resources, and money in security solutions and First Responders, these investments do not address the symptoms listed above or numerous other symptoms.
