Heroes of Tomorrow is a “safety first or no-go” organization.

As a non-profit organization, we dedicate ourselves to and strive for a safe workplace – wherever our workplace might be.

We are under NO time schedule for completion of ANY evolution, so the participants need to understand that time is of no essence whenever safety is a concern.

Safety is our number one concern.

All participants and attendees will be provided with a list of required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) below which will be inventoried prior to commencement of training evolutions.
