About Stapleton Group Training

Our organization actively engages and conducts training for First Responders throughout our nation. We continually monitor the needs of the First Responder community and formulate those needs into specific training and instructional method delivery. We aid in the support services of our governmental officials in Washington, D.C. in regard to all aspects of the needs, wants, and threats faced by the First Responder community. We do this in order to be the most updated training entity in the United States of America.

Our location in the heart of New York City places us in a unique position to see the effects of training on the First Responder Community. We evaluate training needs and make recommendations to change policy and procedures. We understand there is an ever changing threat to our nation. The emerging world of science and technology will bring new tools to the First Responder community. However, this will also give new tools to the ever changing terrorist entities.

To meet the ever increasing challenges of the First Responder community, Stapleton Group has constructed a learning environment where both students and faculty have the unparalleled opportunity to become more aware of the "what ifs" that keep us awake at night. Together we explore the latest "best practices" along with samples of historical tactics, strategies, and operational plans that saved lives and property. This concept applies to all subject material and courses presented.

Stapleton Group is in a unique position to select instructional professionals from seasoned leaders and practitioners in the First Responder community. Every student is invited to take part in the interchanges that shape our lesson plans. We fully acknowledge "adult learning" concepts and will never overuse the "PowerPoint" presentation format. Stapleton Group requires engagement and feedback from our students. Therefore an ever emerging Stapleton Group training program will better ensure prevention, response, and mitigation of ever changing threats to our communities.

Our History

The Stapleton Group has a unique staff of instructional professionals from various agencies such as the New York City Police and Fire Department, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Maritime College, Columbia University, Center for Domestic Preparedness, United Nations, Department of Army and other renowned agencies. Stapleton Group has always acknowledged the connection between safety/security and proper training. Our vision is that of a training partner. We are dedication to educating and preparing leaders in the First Responder community. Stapleton Group will host training in New York City or in any venue of your choice. We have the ability to train in any environment under any condition, since First Responders will work in any environment under any condition.

Stapleton Training Courses

"I've heard comments made in other disasters that the first thing they did was throw the plan away because the plan was worthless. A plan should not be some requirement. It should truly reflect what your real needs are, and what your real resources are."
- Craig Fugate
Administrator of FEMA

"Meet success like a gentleman and disaster like a man."
- Frederick Edwin Smith
20th Century British author

"Good luck happens when preparedness meets opportunity."

"Knowledge is going to make you stronger. Knowledge is going to let you control your life. Knowledge is going to give you the wisdom to teach their children. Knowledge is the thing that makes you smile in the face of disaster."

American actor

"Our top focus - protecting our Nation - must go beyond homeland preparedness; America will only be secure if we deal with threats before they happen, not just after they happen."

U.S. Senator
