About Us

We are a multifaceted company that provides resources and training to first responders, military and their communities while fostering a positive platform that stimulates conversation, solves problems, and connects public safety and communities.

Who We Are

Safety Corps is a virtual hub that links people, technology and ideas to further our shared values in support of our mission. The founding nexus of Safety Corps joined the enthusiasm and ideas of Brian Standow, a business expert and professional, and Chief Ken Evans (retired), a career public safety professional, to conceive and forge the values, vision and mission of this company. With the intention of establishing a grounded source of knowledge and experience for affecting change, they are building a team of professionals and an unparalleled network of public and private sector advisors.

Most importantly, who we are, includes you. We believe you want to live in safe and thriving communities that collaborate with public safety agencies to solve problems; we believe that you, as public safety professionals, should be able to serve and to protect your communities safely and with support; and you as community members are the stakeholders we serve, to which we are accountable, and we believe we can have meaningful dialog with each other about problems in your communities, and work together to solve those problems.

WE are YOU, and YOU are US.
Let’s make a difference!
