East Coast Tactical of Franklin, Mass., a critical incident management firm serving public schools, colleges and businesses across the U.S., has recently been re-branded as Synergy Law Enforcement Solutions.
Operating under the same ownership and management, Synergy Law Enforcement Solutions will continue to provide the nation’s public schools, colleges, hospitals and businesses with customized, comprehensive programs for crisis incident management. The firm has already developed programs for more than 40 high schools, several colleges and businesses across the U.S.
Essential Protocol for Safety and Security
Synergy’s I.M.P.A.C.T. (Incident Management Protocols and Critical Tasks) program is a multi-faceted “All Hazards” program which compiles relevant site data, allowing schools, private industries, hospitals, colleges and universities to have one centralized database which is designed to assist with critical incident management. Synergy effectively sets up protocols for campus/building safety and security in the event of an incident. Their program includes a manual, interactive CD-Rom, personal size floor plans, and step by step field guide which assists in the rapid deployment of public safety personnel and alerts emergency services, faculty, staff and the media. Among the data compiled for each customized program are virtual images, tactical tips, floor plans, utilities, contact information and maps for logistical areas.
“Our Critical incident management programs are crucial to the protection of lives during a crisis, such as that of Columbine High School, which was the nation’s deadliest school shooting,” explained Sgt. Jason Brennan, who is also a member of the Medway Police Department, who heads the company along with Detective Christopher Baker, a member of the Franklin Police Department.
He continued, “It’s imperative to have a step by step plan already in place to ensure the successful resolution of complex and dynamic incidents such as a natural disaster or violent workplace/school situations. The number of campus related violent incidences has increased throughout the world. Campus safety has become a huge recruitment issue for many schools because parents want to know there is a plan is in place to protect their children if something happens. That’s where we come in.”
Among Massachusetts colleges that have incorporated a Synergy’s critical incident management program are Dean College in Franklin and Babson College in Wellesley.
