Due to the recent active shooter misfortunes, we at EPIC Services & Consulting LLC believe awareness and a plan of action can make the difference between life & death. Since January 2018, EPIC has been conducting Active Shooter training all across the US. We believe these trainings are important that in the event of an active shooter, all individuals involved are ready to handle the situation as it unfolds.
Why AWARENESS training and emergency plans can be effective:
EPIC prepares not only the business & staff but also their community:
If you have not considered Active Shooter training for your business, make that a 2018 goal. These methods are so important for your employees and community. Communicating the importance of active shooter and providing such training will prepare your staff, leaving them confident in the solution while protecting your community at large.
EPIC Services & Consulting strives to form partnerships in our local community, being involved with organizations that are making a difference. Our most recent engagements included supporting Lincolnton Middle School with an adaptive playground, creating a safe playground for special needs individuals. We worked alongside local members of the Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce LEADS group, Jason Beckley of OmniStar Financial Group, Erika Thompson - Senior Sales Director of Mary Kay, and Suzanne Strength of HouseMaster of Lake Norman and Timken.
In May 2018, we were invited to attend GiGi’s Playhouse Raleigh I Have a Voice Gala to support the Down syndrome community. GiGi’s Playhouse Raleigh is a Down syndrome achievement center that offers FREE therapeutic programming to individuals of all ages. The Raleigh location is the 31st playhouse to open, the first in NC and one of the 37 playhouses nationwide.
Through these opportunities our company has been exposed to the growing needs in our community.
LINCOLNTON, N.C. - On Friday , March 2 Lincolnton Middle School hosted a fundraiser banquet for their Adaptive Playground funding.
“The event was a MONUMENTAL success!” said Dr. DANA Ayers, Principal of Lincolnton Middle School.
She said that as of now their numbers, of course, are not finalized but she wanted everyone to know that they exceeded their initial goal of $10,000. Preliminary numbers show that LMS raised more than $14,000 in a single evening. This is phenomenal!
This was made possible by the dedicated staff at LMS, community members and local businesses who donated auction items, and four local business people who birthed this idea. These business people are members of the Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce LEADS group. They are Curt Moore of EPIC Services and Consulting, Jason Beckley of OmniStar Financial Group, Erika Thompson - Senior Sales Director of Mary Kay, and Suzanne Strength of HouseMaster of Lake Norman. Their willingness to partner with LMS and desire to promote this project and event with the Chamber of Commerce has taken them much closer to their fundraising goal and plans to build the adaptive playground in the coming months!
Dr. Ayers extended her thanks to the community for coming out to support the Build, Bargain & Banquet Spaghetti Dinner and Auctions. “This was truly an amazing turnout for a wonderful cause! Thanks again to everyone who made this such a great success!”

Crossville-Cumberland County Crime Stoppers Press Release
The Crossville Police Department, working under the supervision of 13th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, and in conjunction with Cumberland County, Putnam County, Fentress County, Wilson County Sheriff’s Offices and Lebanon Police Department, have recovered nearly $1,000,000.00 dollars’ worth of illegal and counterfeit items.
On December 2, 2016 Crossville Detectives Danny Harris and Jason Wilson acted on a tip, that was provided by Agent Curt Moore of “EPIC” Services and Consulting, that a fairly substantial quantity of counterfeit designer clothing and articles were being sold at the Cumberland County Community Complex, in Crossville, TN. The detectives’ investigation located the merchandise and the items were confirmed as being counterfeit. During the following week, leads were developed in all the listed jurisdictions and, working in conjunction with the multiple other business owners who were volunteering their assistance, various additional counterfeit items, which bore the names of North Face, Louis Vitton, Polo, Yeti, Coach, Nike, as well as many others, were recovered.
Local impacts on economy and on the many citizens who thought that they were buying legitimate, name-brand items were not the only concerns for the involved agencies. Counterfeiting and piracy cost the U.S. economy between $200 billion and $250 billion per year, are responsible for the loss of 750,000 American jobs, and pose a threat to health and safety. The Crossville Police Department encourages shoppers to be very cautious when purchasing name-brand items from unknown sources and to examine all items carefully, to avoid being taken advantage of.
