About the event

PRIVATE RESIDENCE. Smyrna, TN Address sent after registration.

This class combines our two most popular stand alone courses: Refuse To Be A Victim -and- Using Pepper Spray. These are your best first steps in preparing for your own personal safety.

9:00am-12:00pm: Refuse To Be A Victim

We never think a crime will happen to us, until it actually does. While sometimes unfortunate things do happen unexpectedly, it is important to be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed for personal safety and crime prevention. Having a personal safety strategy in place and knowing the techniques and tactics you can use to avoid becoming a potential victim can help you live smarter and be safer.

“Crimes of Opportunity” are crimes committed without planning or forethought. When criminals realize they have a chance to commit a crime, they seize the opportunity. Don’t be an easy target. We can all pinpoint times where we’ve made ourselves an easy target – whether it was keeping our heads buried in our phones, parking in a dimly lit area at night, or leaving our houses or cars unlocked. But there are many more, less obvious situations that make us vulnerable as well.

This program (created by the NRA) will cover:

  • Psychology of Criminal Predators: Understand what makes a criminal a predator.
  • Mental Preparedness: Prepare yourself for any situation that may arise.
  • Physical Security: Don't ignore your instincts. If something feels wrong, it probably is!
  • Automobile Security: Equip yourself with the necessities for any type of situation.
  • Personal Protection Devices: Tools that you can use for personal protection.

Each participant will receive:

  • RFTBAV student handbook
  • RTBAV certificate of completion

***12-12:30 LUNCH***
