We're on a mission to save lives

As a retired police commander with over 20 years experience, I've responded to far too many active threat events in my career, including the Ft Lauderdale Airport Attack in 2017 and the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. It affected me deeply. We can do better. We must do better. We have a moral obligation to do better. I know first-hand how obsolete technology and response plans cause tragic consequences. CERA will change that.
