Developing a Personal & Home Protection Plan

image21

For small or large groups at your location!

1-hour class, appropriate for all ages.


We cannot plan when, or where violence and crime might occur.

However, we can and should plan how to avoid and mitigate violent encounters.

Developing a personal and home protection plan is a key component of avoiding or escaping potential threats.


An affordable, single rate will be arranged for your entire group.
