0246 - Dealing with Christmas Trash Safely

/
When it comes to security and safety, many times, many people are feeling a bit too warm and fuzzy to give it much consideration. Any time own safety and security isn't at the forefront is a time when we need to be particularly concerned. It is these time that we can be caught off guard by simple things. It doesn't take a complex situation to make life unpleasant, unsafe, or deadly. Make sure you keep that in mind when you dispose of your Christmas trash.

0238 - Using your Smart Phone to Lead a Safer Life

/
Three years ago I would not have been able to imagine a world without cell phones. More than any other thing invented in recent times they have made our lives more efficient. The ability to communicate on a whim with virtually anyone allows our lives to be more flexible and spontaneous. This past holiday I chuckled when my dad busted out his circa 2004 flip phone. The reason I laughed is because it isn't about the phone any more. They are all in one do it all gadgets that have become essential in our lives. Yes, we could survive without smartphones, but for now we don't need to, so why not use them to help us when the chips are down!

0163 - Enter ICE In Your Phone

/
In an emergency situation communication is key. There are however situations where we may depend on others to do the communicating for us. One of those times is if we are injured or incapacitated in some way and are unable to communicate ourselves. In that situation many people would love to help out, if they only knew how. That is where ICE comes in!

0122 - Carry Weapon Condition

/
One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the opportunities it provides to be reminded of my humble beginnings. In the past 12 years or so that I have become increasingly interested in self-defense and concealed weapons I have had the opportunity to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge. Working with students who are where I once was is an excellent reminder of where it is that I came from. That being said, I don't ever remember being in a place where I didn't carry a gun with a round in the chamber. I am always surprised as to how often I read on the www how people are unsure as to whether they should carry their gun with a round in the tube.

0104 - Using Bogus Emails to Improve our Security

/
I get a deluge of emails from my listeners that are related to crime prevention. I read them all and I would guess that I use something from just about every email. I got this one yesterday and I wanted to share with you the tips that I took from the email. I have to say that I was glad that someone took the time to check the email out on Snopes.com to get the real story.

0097 - Preparing for Civil Unrest

/
As far as the threats we face in society one of the most dangerous and chaotic that I see is the threat of civil unrest. The events taking place in Egypt may seem like they are half a world away, but the reality is much more close to home.
