"When seconds count, police are only minutes away." This old saying relays the sentiment that In the critical moment of a potentially life-threatening situation like a home invasion, carjacking or public shooting, the odds are good that there won't be a "lifeguard" there to save you. 

In an increasingly dangerous world, you're on your own to ensure you and your loved ones have the knowledge and skills to recognize and avoid (if possible) a life-threatening situation, or to survive and prevail. 

FreeState will be rolling out a series of courses, starting with this Situational Awareness and Response Training seminar, that teach simple, practical and immediately employable skills to avoid, recognize and respond to potentially deadly situations.
