Experts agree that the single most important step toward ensuring your personal safety is making the decision to refuse to be a victim. That means that you must have an overall personal safety strategy in place before you need it. Through a four-hour seminar (shorter presentations are available) called Refuse To Be A Victim®, you can learn the personal safety tips and techniques you need to avoid dangerous situations and avoid becoming a victim. This is an NRA workshop given by an NRA-trained and certified instructor.  This workshop fee is $40 for the four-hour intensive course.

This class is for preppers and non-preppers alike. A power outage can happen to any of us at any time. Hopefully it will just be a few hours due to a storm, but if it is the BIG one, a national grid failure, do you know how to manage for months, maybe more, without electricity?  This one class could save your life someday, but we GUARANTEE it will make your life much easier and more comfortable than it would have been had you not taken it, and you experience a power outage. It’s a fun class, and is loaded with things you really HAVE to know and will be glad you learn.
