(EVENT: MARCH-APRIL 2019) Always be aware of who is approaching your “personal space”. Society spends an unnecessary amount of time with heads in the downward position reading their electronic devices. Complaisant actions from organizations and individuals have increased a would-be attackers’ chances of success by our own mistakes and apathy towards situational awareness.

Situational awareness is a skill to be practiced every day. It’s not the” art of paranoia” but the skillful use of your eyes, ears, and intuition. The world is your “practice field” for developing these skills and increasing the likelihood of avoiding a crisis. Learn the skills of situational awareness, develop them through continuous practice, and use what you’ve learned to stay safe. Training = Survival.
