Rick Shaw

Rick Shaw, a Prevention Specialist, author, and trusted advisor to organizations and communities worldwide, founded Awareity in 2004 and First Preventers in 2019. Since 1999, Rick has been researching post-incident reports to identify the profile of thousands of failed prevention efforts exposing a profile of dangerous gaps, silos, and disconnects that conventional status quo practices have created. Using the unique research, Rick identified the 6 Stages of Preventing as well as the first of its kind First Preventers Program and Community-wide Prevention Platform tools to eliminate these dangerous gaps.
