This program was specifically developed for Fire Fighters and Paramedics. We listened to your stories, gathered your input and applied your feedback. We have created a program that will enable you to feel safer in the workplace thus allowing you to focus your energy and concentration on the task at hand; saving lives.
First responders are often targeted for no other reason than the uniform they wear. First responders sign up and commit to the people they serve. In order to fulfill that commitment they have to maintain their personal safety to be able to guarantee that of the public.
Although the public is a priority, you are “Number 1”. The reality is if you go down, you are no better than the person you are responding to. Let’s keep you up and in the game! We bet that you play harder off duty than you do on. Let’s keep you fit, healthy, and uninjured to be able to enjoy the things you love in life!
The objective of this program is to educate participants on how to avoid a hands on physical encounter, to minimize the opportunities of being the victim of a spontaneous assault, and how to de-escalate a situation using nothing more than communication.
Police, Fire, and Ambulance work collaboratively to protect the public. Let’s get on the same page to ensure EVERYONE goes home safe tonight.
