Meet Frank Ceballos of Respond Effectively Against Credible Threats (R.E.A.C.T)

Today we’d like to introduce you to Frank Ceballos.

Frank, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I had the great honor to serve the Great State of Arizona as a State Trooper for approximately eight years. During my time in Law enforcement, I was placed in charge of teaching civilian Active Shooter training at the State Capitol in Phoenix, Arizona. From 2013-2016, I taught approximately 5,000 state employees throughout Arizona. The purpose of this training is to help people increase their chances of surviving an Active Shooter incident.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. The biggest struggle is finding a way to share our message with people. Showing businesses that there is a need for workplace violence prevention is tough because most people don’t want to think about or plan for bad things that could potentially happen.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Respond Effectively Against Credible Threats (R.E.A.C.T) – what should we know?
We teach behavior and situational awareness; we help people recognize behaviors of concern that they see at work, schools and in churches.

By recognizing these behaviors people have the ability to prevent violence from occurring in the workplace and in schools. We teach people how to be mindful, not fearful of their surroundings!

What have been some of the most important lessons you’ve learned over the course of your career?
I don’t think I would do anything differently if I had to start over.
