Parents Association Parent Forum:  School Safety

Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019, 6:30 p.m.

McCormick Auditorium


Join us for an evening with Mike Hurley, a Pennsylvania Registered School Business Official (PRSBO). He has served as the director of safety and security for the Carlisle Area School District since 1985. He works with schools to develop and implement best practices in school safety:


  • Preparing school staff for active assailant incidents
  • Establishing a parent's role in creating a safe school climate
  • Communicating lessons learned from school incidents


Mike also holds the position of school services officer for the Cumberland County Department of Public Safety and as operations chief for the Emergency Operations Center. Mike has over 30 years of experience in emergency management planning, and is founder of the Cumberland County Safe Schools Association. The Association brings together over 30 school districts, law enforcement departments, and first responder agencies with the goal of coordinating responses to school emergencies. Mike served as president of the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) in 2006-07, and currently chairs the association’s School Safety Committee.  Read more about Mike on the MG Tactical website.


MG Tactical is an organization that assists schools with crisis management and planning. The idea of MG Tactical Advantage was born when two friends and fellow law enforcement officers Mike Guido and Ron Millward decided they could provide training that was more relevant and more interesting than what was being offered at the time. Mike and Ron taught their first class together in 1991. Since then, the business has grown and changed to fill various needs and voids, not only in the law enforcement and military fields, but also in the areas of healthcare and education as well as civilian training and informative lectures. In 2007, Mike made MG Tactical Advantage an LLC. MG Tactical Advantage now offers services other than training to include expert witness opinion and testimony, force response review and opinion, policy and procedure development and review, risk assessment and management as well as lectures and safety talks.
