I participated in the Active Shooter exercise put on by IDARE Inc. The professionalism shown in preparation and execution of the program was TOP Notch. Even though there was an idea of what was to occur, the actual drill still paralleled what a person would expect to see, hear, and feel during a REAL WORLD Incident. Nothing can truly prepare an individual for what will take place, but the realism of the organizations' presentation can go a long way to get you thinking about all the various aspects of what might occur and what actions You as an innocent victim must decide to take. Any organization looking to train its members with a live action, participatory experience, should talk with these folks. They can assist you in developing a plan to survive and help others to survive the unthinkable.
I attended one of the disaster preparedness workshop in Los Angeles, I was impressed very educational and informative. Ms. Nicky Dare, the founder was the speaker and knowledgeable in all materials. I hope this organization will always continue their great work and such worthy cause. Thank you iDARE!
iDARE presented one of the most insightful training active shooter preparedness. The speaker was extremely helpful and professional explaining the most important aspect in our daily lives: situational awareness. She was professional and thorough of her explanation to why this is very important to our daily habit. We have to be more situationally aware to our environment with things and situations can be avoided. I learned a lot and want to see more events like this. I checked iDARE works and they really do great jobs in the community.
I thought the presentation was very good and I did learn a few things, which is what I expected. Even though the scenario was planned, there was a certain amount of reality to it that made me very emotional. Even though no presentation can prepare you fully for an active shooter situation, being exposed to presentations like this can only help.
Fair. Attended a class I think the presentation was okay. Could not really see a lot of the presentation from the back. Key presenter was not good with the microphone (on her) . She was to loud for the mic and it came across distorted. Key speaker had some issues with one on one interaction.I asked a question after the class ended - facilitator was dismissive and it was like she did not care. I would have asked during the class but was not recognized and the class ended early and started late.
I participated at an Active shooter event that was very helpful in bringing awareness and information to the general public. This event was free to be able to reach a large segment of the population so I really believe iDare is making a difference.
Vital information in this day and age we live in, but I felt the video presentation portion was lacking. The speaker wasn't the best, they should have done a tech check prior to the presentation as both the AV was lacking. Projector was not powerful enough and the screen was dim because the room could not be darkened. I got the most out of the Q and A portion of the day.
Hi, my MoM is a supporter of this great organization. We were blessed by the commitment of the NPO and receive a lot of great advice and concern during 2017 Hurricane Harvey flooding and rescue efforts in South Texas ravaged the coastline.
Many offers for assistance and support poured out to our community from the executive director/Idare.inc to send necessary items to the needy and displaced. They really have a dedication to recovery when disaster strikes.
Idare.inc and the dedication to educating the community was a beacon to me and my family in the first few years of living in a new part of the country. Learning disaster preparedness lessened our stress but enabled us to share our experience with others to partner with Idare.inc to stay safe and prepared.
"Attending the drill and participating in real life scenarios keeps me and my pack ready to grab our go backs when disaster strikes!

Disasters are all over the world and not so far away from our community and the place we live and work. Well prepared and action taken are very important to all of us nowadays. iDare gives very detailed guidance and training to let us think and know how important the preparedness is not only to save our lives, but survive in all kinds of uncertainty and disaster approaching.
Well trained people know what to do and what they can help not only for their family but the people around them and the community they live. All are beneficial.
Thank you iDare!
IDARE@ Inc. is a great organization to volunteer. I have volunteer as a Web Application Specialist. The CEO of the company is knowledgeable, great to work with, and have a vision on where she want the organization to achieve.
iDare is a great organisation that goes to great lengths to educate people prior to an emergency such as a natural disaster. Whem there is a natural disaster they are there giving hope love and support to those effected. In the wake of tragedies and terror attacks they consult with and broadcast talks with industry experts via talk radio about ways to prevent, reduce, avoid, and/or react to these often terrifying situations.
I had helped volunteer this organization at few local events held in the community. I was impressed how well organized. I look forward to volunteering this holiday season again.
