Foley Security Solutions newest training course is the S.A.F.E. training module. This course empowers individuals to spot violence BEFORE it Happens.

 

Do you have the right mindset? We believe the right mindset is the left mindset. What does that mean? The left mindset is what S.A.F.E. training is trying to gain and maintain in the people we train.

Everyone’s mindset is unique to them, but how we process danger and threats to our personal safety can be best demonstrated using what we call a Left of Bang mindset....

 

The left mindset is what S.A.F.E. training is trying to gain and maintain in the people we train.

Everyone’s mindset is unique to them, but how we process danger and threats to our personal safety can be best demonstrated using what we call a Left of Bang mindset.

 

 

 

How do you gain and maintain a Left of Bang mindset. Basically, the Left of Bang mindset is if you look at our incident timeline above, you have bang right there in the middle. Bang is your bad event, bang is your shooting, your mugging, your threatening situation that you don’t really want to deal with and would rather avoid.

 

Those brackets to the right of bang are all the actions that we take after the fact, after bang is has happened. Things like call 911, evacuate people, treat people who are hurt, so on and so forth and you must know how to react to certain situations, especially if you work in the security realm.

 

However, there is another side of the coin that we can address or look for and those are all those pre-event indicators left to bang. S.A.F.E. training is not a silver bullet to stop bad things from happening but a way to proactively scan and be aware of threats, and not waiting for the bad to happen. Being proactive versus reactive is the goal. The 70% solution right now is better than the 100% solution to late. You won’t be right every time, but by using researched based behaviors, you’ll be right more often than you’re wrong.

 

Our instructors will discuss and give examples of key principals of the Left of Bang mindset, dynamics of the brain Biometrics (physical cues and indicators), and Kinesics (non-verbal cues and indicators).

 

Using the tools taught in this course, by the time you are ready to make a decision, you should have already established (generally) what your actions will be and make critical decisions in times of stress and threat.
