Faculty/Administrator Safety Training & Emergency Response (FASTER), the group that provided the training, was organized in response to the mass murder of elementary school children in Newtown, Conn. The pro-Second Amendment organization Coloradans for Civil Liberties funded scholarships allowing the school employees to attend.
