0222 - Using 911 Efficiently

/
When we pick up the phone to dial 911 we most likely need help and we probably need it 3 minutes ago. The last thing we want to do is have the response to take any longer than it already is going to. In some situations due to mechanical difficulties or a lack of preparation, the call never gets through. Much of that is in our control.

0218 - 9-11 Series: How Can We Prevent Future Terror Attacks

/
No one wants to find themselves in the middle of some type of terrorist action. Once we are in the middle, we have lost some or all of the control that we have over ourselves and I have to tell you control is never something I want to surrender. So, it would make sense that just like any other safety issue we should turn our thoughts and efforts to awareness and prevention to help us avoid getting into a situation that we don't want to be in. In the past ten years our country has invested billions of dollars into the prevention of terrorism. Some of that money is well spent, but in general, I think the price tag could have been a lot lower if everyone was willing to put in the sweat equity to stop terrorism.

0217 - 9-11 Series: What Has Changed in 10 Years?

/
There are countless things that have changed since the attacks on September 11. Some good, some bad and some could go either way. Remember that we are the tools that enact change in our country. What we do matters. It is our duty to look seriously at the events of 9-11 and learn from them. If we fail to do that we fail to honor those that have fallen for our great nation!

0216 - 9-11 Series: Where Were You?

/
As diverse as our audience is, so will be the experiences and lessons that we learned from 9/11. My goal today wasn't to share some kind of amazing story. Not possible. I don't have one. Nothing that has happened to me today or since can come close to having the impact that the events did on those that were actually involved in the events of the day. None the less, there are lessons to be learned. from our stories. Share yours.

0191 - When to Call the Police

/
One very common and yet very difficult question that people ask me is when to call the police. It is so tough to answer because the circumstances are so different in virtually every encounter that you might wonder when to dial 911. So, today I throw some considerations at you to help you determine when is the right time to call for help.

0155 - FF What Ever You Do, Don't MYOB!

/
Yesterday we talked about awareness and how difficult it can be to stay out of it when you know (or think you know) what is going on around you. I made it pretty clear that for me, in most situations, I simply stay out of it. Your mileage may vary, based on your duties, your values, and a host of other factors. But there are some times when I just can't swallow that advice I gave yesterday.
