THE SAFEPLANS’ STORY
SafePlans began as S.A.F.E. Consulting in 1993 as a part-time security consulting business while Brad Spicer was a Trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. In 1999, based on his experience with the Patrol’s Tactical Response Team, Mr. Spicer began exploring ways to link facility floor plans with digital images to help SWAT personnel respond faster and safer to critical incidents.
In 2000, while assigned to the Missouri Governor’s Security Detail, the newly elected Governor’s two school-aged children introduced Mr. Spicer to school emergency preparedness challenges that are not addressed solely by law enforcement response. Working hand in hand with schools, he developed strategies with the goals of prevention, mitigation, and reduction of response time. These strategies took into consideration that there are two separate responses; the response of the site that is affected by the incident and the response of public safety officials. These concepts are the foundation of what is now the ERIP solution.
In 2003, while a sergeant with 11 years of service, Mr. Spicer resigned from a promising career with the Highway Patrol to focus on improving school readiness. Under his leadership SafePlans has grown into a national firm with clients including fortune 500 companies and two of the five largest schools systems in the U.S. SafePlans is an Advanced Level IBM Partner and ERIP is designated by U.S. Homeland Security as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology.

Brad’s background includes Army Military Intelligence with deployment to Operations Desert Shield & Storm. Following his military service, Brad spent 11 years with the Missouri State Patrol, with assignments on SWAT and the Governor’s Protection Detail where he coordinated security operations during Presidential visits and other high-profile events.
In 2001, he developed the Emergency Response Information Portal (ERIP™), an emergency preparedness software application and founded SafePlans. Nearly 20 years research of active shooter incidents led him to create the AlerT™ (Assess, lockdown, evade, resist, Tell) active shooter defense training system.
SafePlans has grown is a national firm with clients including fortune 500 companies and work with many of the largest school systems in the U.S. AlerT is a leading active shooter defense training program and ERIP has been designated by U.S. Homeland Security as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology.
