Prepare To Act: The Most extensive lifesaving training available.

Prepare To Act offers the most extensive lifesaving training available to the public. It began and was built by and on the fundamentals and training of Law Enforcement, Fire and Emergency Medical Service professionals with a goal of making our communities and our families safer. Prepare To Act was founded on one simple concept which is to provide educational programs and effective training that will help you protect what we all hold so precious: LIFE.

We offer time tested trainings and certifications like our NRA Firearm Pistol Certification Courses, Basic EMT Certification Courses and our CPR and First Aid Programs. We have also built and continue to build original programs like our Project Kids Campaign, which includes Anti-Bullying Programs, Kid Confidence Building, Child Safety and Awareness Training as well as providing Free Child Identification Kits. Another original program is our School Safety Program which includes Risk Assessments, the institution of Emergency Operations Plans, on-going Educator Training Programs and so much more.

We believe that one type of program or a cookie cutter safety class will not cover the needs of your business, your family or your neighborhood. That is why our safety and security classes are built specifically for the needs of the customer. Our programs range from our Don’t Be A Victim and Emergency Situation Trainings to our Home and Corporate Risk Safety Assessments.


Prepare To Act is a proponent of our Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. However, we believe in responsible gun ownership. We are now in the process of building a Level II Firearm Safety Class which will be a review of our Connecticut laws, the Castle Doctrine, hands on training and more. Email or call us for additional information. In the meantime, check our online warehouse at for a huge selection of firearms, optics, ammunition, tactical gear, flashlights and so much more.

Explore our website and come back often as we add to it daily with updated courses, current events and crime trends, safety tips and so much more.
