That is why we partnered with SEC, a company owned and operated by former US Secret Service Agents, to help us take our safety and security to the highest level possible. The SEC team specializes in analyzing facilities, developing Emergency Preparedness Plans, and preparing faculty and staff to appropriately confront emergencies of all kinds.
