But what I’m gonna do here folks, I actually went ahead and I there’s another show

00:00:52.920 –> 00:00:58.560
I did a while back on for a friend of mine over tongue. He’s in you were he’s a ham radio and Aries races

00:00:58.560 –> 00:01:04.320

What I’m gonna do folks, I’m gonna play that for you here today and it’s all about situation awareness and all that and

00:01:10.800 –> 00:01:13.580
You know the whole podcast is on that. So

00:01:13.580 –> 00:01:19.040
what I’m gonna do is I’m just gonna play this bit from his show that we did and

00:01:20.320 –> 00:01:24.720
You know, that’s gonna be it for the show today. So it’s gonna be again. This whole show is gonna be about situational awareness

00:01:24.720 –> 00:01:29.600
I actually did quite a good piece put a letter got a lot of good information on situational awareness

00:01:29.600 –> 00:01:32.920
so like I said, I’m just gonna go ahead and play that out now and

00:01:32.920 –> 00:01:37.960
Like I said, I want to thank everybody for listening and like I said enjoy this

00:01:37.960 –> 00:01:43.280
Information on the situational awareness and we will talk to you, you know on the next edition. Thank you very much

00:01:44.720 –> 00:01:52.480
But this show is all about being prepared and your situational awareness and I’m telling you folks situational awareness is something that a lot

00:01:52.480 –> 00:01:58.220
Of people don’t know a lot about they don’t even think about it. They are just completely oblivious to what goes on around them

00:01:58.220 –> 00:02:03.700
You know my home, you know, I treat them the way, you know my house a little differently, you know

00:02:03.700 –> 00:02:05.600
I have you know driveway sensors

00:02:05.600 –> 00:02:10.440
So, you know when the driveway sensor goes off we can pull up our cameras because I actually do have cameras in my house

00:02:10.440 –> 00:02:16.120
And we can see who’s going on not because I’m afraid something’s gonna break into my house or somebody’s gonna kill us

00:02:16.120 –> 00:02:22.880
You want to know what’s going on actually before it happens to you are prepared for it? Okay, and I’m gonna tell you I like it

00:02:22.880 –> 00:02:26.320
I’m not afraid of somebody breaking into my home or anything like that. That’s not what I’m afraid of

00:02:26.320 –> 00:02:30.280
Okay, so he breaks in my house is deal something. I’m insured. Okay, that’s not what I’m worried about

00:02:30.280 –> 00:02:37.460
I’m worried about the safety of my family. Okay, and I’ll give you a prime example. Not even just that. Okay, give you example

00:02:37.460 –> 00:02:40.000
Okay, my wife is home. Okay, she works from home

00:02:40.480 –> 00:02:41.680

00:02:41.680 –> 00:02:48.580
There are days when the buzzer will go off and she’ll look at the camera on her phone and say oh the UPS guy is here

00:02:48.580 –> 00:02:50.840
Okay, she gets up

00:02:50.840 –> 00:02:56.920
You know gets you know code on whatever it’s cold outside and she meets the guy outside of the door. She was

00:02:56.920 –> 00:03:01.280
Situationally prepared not for not to be killed or anything like that

00:03:01.280 –> 00:03:06.400
But just to be you know prepared for the guy so she doesn’t have to waste time. Okay, and the other thing too

00:03:06.400 –> 00:03:12.560
Okay, it’s you know, and I’m not gonna lie. Okay, I have been in situations at my own home where the buzzer goes off

00:03:12.560 –> 00:03:16.600
You know for the alarm, you know, that’s let me know somebody’s coming the driveway

00:03:16.600 –> 00:03:20.260
I’ll look at the camera and I don’t know this guy now he’s coming up now much the camera

00:03:20.260 –> 00:03:23.200
He’s coming to my front door. So what I’ll do I’ll go out the side door

00:03:23.200 –> 00:03:30.140
Why not that I don’t think this guy’s gonna hurt me. Just I don’t know him. I’d rather be you know 100 feet away

00:03:30.140 –> 00:03:33.840
So if I have to either run back to my home running back in the house locked door

00:03:34.440 –> 00:03:38.980
You know say I’m not right on top of this guy. So sweet. I gives me some space to be

00:03:38.980 –> 00:03:43.040
Prepared for if something would happen. I’m not paranoid

00:03:43.040 –> 00:03:45.680
Hey, if I was paranoid, I would okay. I

00:03:45.680 –> 00:03:49.460
wouldn’t be telling you this but you know, it’s

00:03:49.460 –> 00:03:54.180
You want to be a little bit prepared for what could happen?

00:03:54.180 –> 00:03:58.640
Okay, I’m not saying anything is going to happen to you

00:03:58.640 –> 00:04:03.800
I’m not saying that you know, you need to be paranoid 24 hours a day 365

00:04:03.800 –> 00:04:05.880
What I’m telling you is you just need to be

00:04:05.880 –> 00:04:10.360
Prepared for what could happen

00:04:10.360 –> 00:04:14.320
Okay, you know when my wife is walking to her car

00:04:14.320 –> 00:04:20.320
She makes sure that she has her keys in her hand. Okay, and I’m gonna tell you why okay

00:04:20.320 –> 00:04:25.120
Case somebody tries to do something to her she can hit the alarm and make a distraction make some noise

00:04:25.120 –> 00:04:30.380
So somebody will look and see what’s going on. Okay, another thing to you ladies out there

00:04:30.380 –> 00:04:32.380
I know we have a lot of female listeners by the way

00:04:33.560 –> 00:04:37.400
When you’re when you got the beach anything share have you I don’t wish anything on anybody but

00:04:37.400 –> 00:04:42.160
God forbid a guy should ever pull you to the ground and try to do something to you. Do not yell rape

00:04:42.160 –> 00:04:47.080
Okay, make sure you yell fire or something like that because

00:04:47.080 –> 00:04:50.800
People tend to respond quicker better to that than they do rape

00:04:50.800 –> 00:04:56.000
I’m just telling you that’s just something I found over the years and self-defense classes and stuff like that. Okay, and

00:04:56.000 –> 00:04:58.600
Just just so you know, okay

00:04:58.600 –> 00:05:02.420
But if you’re walking to your car and say it is a person that even if you set your alarm off

00:05:02.420 –> 00:05:04.420
It’s not gonna make a lot of noise

00:05:04.420 –> 00:05:09.040
Keep a keep a can of pepper spray in your hand have it right don’t have any your purse because let me pulls you down

00:05:09.040 –> 00:05:12.900
Your purse get thrown away. You’re not gonna have anything to defend yourself having your hand when you get in the car

00:05:12.900 –> 00:05:14.360
Put it in your glove box

00:05:14.360 –> 00:05:14.880

00:05:14.880 –> 00:05:19.700
I know that you ladies when you open your car door if even your car is locked open it up look in the backseat

00:05:19.700 –> 00:05:21.720
Make sure your overhead lights work

00:05:21.720 –> 00:05:26.380
Look in the backseat look in the passenger seat before you get in because once you close that door

00:05:26.380 –> 00:05:28.920
Now you’re in a now you’re in a tight situation

00:05:30.200 –> 00:05:37.400
Okay, tell my wife this all the time. Okay, very very important. Okay, and I’m gonna tell you it’s not even just that

00:05:37.400 –> 00:05:43.720
Okay, let me give you a present. Okay, my daughter gets off the bus. She has to cross two lanes. Okay

00:05:43.720 –> 00:05:46.980
Now the traffic is supposed to stop

00:05:46.980 –> 00:05:53.780
Okay, they’re supposed to stop they have to stop. Okay, they’re supposed to anyway, okay, I tell my daughter look both ways

00:05:53.780 –> 00:05:59.800
She’s like but daddy the traffic has to stop for the bus. No, let’s correct this

00:06:00.080 –> 00:06:03.820
They don’t have to stop they are supposed to stop

00:06:03.820 –> 00:06:05.840
But they don’t have to stop

00:06:05.840 –> 00:06:11.340
Take that second and look both ways be aware of your surroundings because looking to the left looking to the right could save your life

00:06:11.340 –> 00:06:15.700
Okay, that’s just the way it is. Okay

00:06:15.700 –> 00:06:17.920
Again, I’m not trying to freak anybody out

00:06:17.920 –> 00:06:22.240
I’m not trying to tell people how you should live and that you should not trust anybody because that’s not the case at all

00:06:22.240 –> 00:06:24.240
But I’m telling you

00:06:24.240 –> 00:06:28.220
These are the situational awareness things that you should be prepared for

00:06:29.160 –> 00:06:33.260
Okay, I’m gonna tell you something else right now. Okay. I have a scanner running in my house

00:06:33.260 –> 00:06:38.600
Okay, it’s getting all the local police frequencies. Now. I’m not somebody goes out and chases ambulance. I don’t

00:06:38.600 –> 00:06:44.180
Okay, I just don’t know what’s going on. You know, it’s not even just for oh

00:06:44.180 –> 00:06:50.260
My god, there’s a guy on the loose, you know, I got a you know load up my gun. It’s not that law yesterday

00:06:50.260 –> 00:06:53.440
I was had a leave for work and here on the scanner just as I’m walking on the door that

00:06:53.440 –> 00:06:56.120
Highway I take to go to work is stopped on both directions

00:06:56.840 –> 00:07:01.200
So, you know what I did I took a different route to work. I took the back road. I was there on time

00:07:01.200 –> 00:07:04.320
Actually, I was there a little early surprisingly enough, but okay

00:07:04.320 –> 00:07:08.220
And nothing to do with being you know

00:07:08.220 –> 00:07:11.880
You know nothing to do with being you know

00:07:11.880 –> 00:07:17.620
A paranoid about something it was just just oh, okay roads blocked off. Perhaps. I should probably take another way

00:07:17.620 –> 00:07:19.360
There’s a phone there’s an app on your phone for that

00:07:19.360 –> 00:07:24.840
They want to give a scanner running throw an app on your phone traffic app or they have a scanner app for your phone

00:07:25.720 –> 00:07:29.040
Okay that you can listen to the local scanners once in a while, okay

00:07:29.040 –> 00:07:36.720
And I’ll tell you I had a my business actually we had a fire and if it wasn’t for having that that scanner on and

00:07:36.720 –> 00:07:39.840
A friend of mine would have called me and I’m saying I had the skin wrong

00:07:39.840 –> 00:07:42.880
But I did that particular night. I just didn’t hear it. I ever gonna call me

00:07:42.880 –> 00:07:45.540
Hey, I just run on the scan that your business is on fire. Maybe you should go down there

00:07:45.540 –> 00:07:51.200
I don’t went down there and it was okay, very important to be situated, you know, just situationally aware

00:07:51.200 –> 00:07:54.760
I’m not saying you have to be paranoid. I’m saying just be

00:07:55.400 –> 00:07:57.120

00:07:57.120 –> 00:08:03.120
Okay, again, you know you ham radio operators to local nets if you’re a ham radio operator, you know

00:08:03.120 –> 00:08:06.780
The local nets are great. The guys from ham radios always passing traffic along

00:08:06.780 –> 00:08:09.360
And tell you the truth. I personally

00:08:09.360 –> 00:08:13.960
Love okay the nets. I’m gonna tell you what, you know if I don’t say anything

00:08:13.960 –> 00:08:18.400
I listen because you know what you always get good information weather updates, you know traffic up

00:08:18.400 –> 00:08:21.960
The ham radio operators are some of the best connected people in the world believe it or not

00:08:23.920 –> 00:08:25.920
And they’re very tight-knit group as well

00:08:25.920 –> 00:08:28.620
Okay, some other things. Okay as well

00:08:28.620 –> 00:08:32.000
You know every day when you get up just go to you know

00:08:32.000 –> 00:08:36.400
The news go to CNN calm Fox news calm just glance over the news see what’s going on

00:08:36.400 –> 00:08:41.680
Just be be be educated on what’s going on because you may need to you may need to know that later on

00:08:41.680 –> 00:08:45.120
Okay, read your local paper. You don’t have to read the net

00:08:45.120 –> 00:08:49.220
None of the national is me a little flat that I’m not gonna lie depending on what news media you watch

00:08:49.220 –> 00:08:51.220
But just pick up a local newspaper

00:08:51.920 –> 00:08:54.640
And see what’s going on. Okay, see what’s going on

00:08:54.640 –> 00:08:57.760
See if there’s any any events going on that maybe you can take your family to

00:08:57.760 –> 00:09:03.520
Okay, you know, it’s it’s just being situationally aware. What’s going on. I’ll give you a prime example

00:09:03.520 –> 00:09:06.580
you pick up the local paper it says oh, well, there’s gonna be a

00:09:06.580 –> 00:09:12.460
You know a you know a fair or a or a parade going through Main Street

00:09:12.460 –> 00:09:17.920
Crap, maybe you know if we have to be at uncle uncle June’s by you know

00:09:19.100 –> 00:09:21.860
– maybe we should take a different route

00:09:21.860 –> 00:09:25.380
Again, nothing to do with life for desperate just being prepared

00:09:25.380 –> 00:09:28.680
Being aware of what’s going on around you

00:09:28.680 –> 00:09:34.560
Okay, watching the weather every day, you know, and now I know and now I’m like I said, I’m gonna say this. Okay, I

00:09:34.560 –> 00:09:39.740
Don’t I don’t anybody that’s listening to this show. I’m gonna guess probably doesn’t watch the local weather forecast

00:09:39.740 –> 00:09:42.900
No problem with that. I don’t either. Okay, if I wanna read the weather I go to either

00:09:42.900 –> 00:09:46.460
I go to the National Weather Service or I go to the Weather Channel now

00:09:47.120 –> 00:09:49.580
Just to make you a little aware of that the National Weather Service

00:09:49.580 –> 00:09:54.760
Is more up-to-date than the weather channel your local news because they are the ones that deliver the weather to those people

00:09:54.760 –> 00:09:56.760
A lot of people don’t know that by the way

00:09:56.760 –> 00:10:02.580
Okay, just know what’s going on. This is what you know. Okay, I’ll give you a prime example. Okay, we I have

00:10:02.580 –> 00:10:07.120
I have a pickup truck that’s full-wheel drive and I have my company car which is rear-wheel drive. Okay

00:10:07.120 –> 00:10:12.000
I watch the news every day in the morning. I’ll turn on the weather just to see what’s going on. Okay, I

00:10:12.000 –> 00:10:14.300
Look at it on my phone

00:10:14.300 –> 00:10:16.300
Nothing to do with a life or death situation

00:10:16.880 –> 00:10:21.800
Just to know okay. There’s a possibility there could be some hail today. Okay

00:10:21.800 –> 00:10:25.020
Maybe I should probably take my truck

00:10:25.020 –> 00:10:29.280
Just in case I get into a situation where it’s icy

00:10:29.280 –> 00:10:35.740
I’ll have to worry about sliding off around the road my car and getting into an accident again. Just being situationally aware folks

00:10:35.740 –> 00:10:40.240
Not life or death. Okay. Nothing is to fix having a plan

00:10:40.240 –> 00:10:46.640
Okay, if you know, okay, I get I get calls tonight from my we live really out in the rural area

00:10:47.080 –> 00:10:49.080
Out here. Okay in

00:10:49.080 –> 00:10:52.840
Pennsylvania and I do like it like a lot of you see you live in the middle of nowhere

00:10:52.840 –> 00:10:54.940
I’m like, yes I do, but I like it. Okay

00:10:54.940 –> 00:10:59.240
There’s a good possibility there’s gonna be a snow a big back snowstorm

00:10:59.240 –> 00:11:03.120
There’s a good possibility my wife and daughter and I are gonna be trapped in this house for two days not trapped

00:11:03.120 –> 00:11:08.200
But maybe just not gonna be able to probably get around too far. Okay, the odds are chance

00:11:08.200 –> 00:11:13.520
I probably should fill my car up get out the inverter for my car. So he’s gonna lose power. I can have electric and

00:11:14.840 –> 00:11:18.440
Probably should have my snowblower and my four-wheeler. Okay

00:11:18.440 –> 00:11:23.380
Filled up slick and plow again just being situationally aware

00:11:23.380 –> 00:11:28.780
Okay, some other things well folks is like I said planning have a plan

00:11:28.780 –> 00:11:31.920
Be aware of your surroundings, you know and not just not just

00:11:31.920 –> 00:11:34.440

00:11:34.440 –> 00:11:39.060
Be aware at work be aware how your company’s doing at work because it’s a good possibility

00:11:39.060 –> 00:11:43.400
You may have to deal with maybe losing your job

00:11:44.080 –> 00:11:49.320
Maybe deal with okay, you know, honey, I’m noticing the company’s, you know, it’s like your wife’s like hey, you know, honey

00:11:49.320 –> 00:11:51.320
I noticed the company’s a little bit of a downturn

00:11:51.320 –> 00:11:57.960
Maybe we just are putting away some of our income into a savings account case. I lose my job and I’m not old before unemployment

00:11:57.960 –> 00:11:59.880

00:11:59.880 –> 00:12:04.080
Just be situationally aware and have a plan for that

00:12:04.080 –> 00:12:11.880
Okay, I’m not like I said, I’m not telling you you need to you know to live with a shotgun underneath, you know your pillow

00:12:12.040 –> 00:12:16.660
Okay, I’m telling you to be situationally aware of what’s going on and okay

00:12:16.660 –> 00:12:19.480
Another thing okay

00:12:19.480 –> 00:12:25.660
You know, not only just just having a plan for you know, your weather plan for your job plus all that

00:12:25.660 –> 00:12:32.400
Okay, just just be just be be a little bit, you know change your routine once in a while, you know people that are very

00:12:32.400 –> 00:12:35.520
Set in their ways

00:12:35.520 –> 00:12:38.440
Okay, people notice that if somebody notices. Hey, you know

00:12:38.440 –> 00:12:41.160
You leave your house every day

00:12:41.840 –> 00:12:46.160
You know and you know come back around one or two we could probably hit his house and probably steal something

00:12:46.160 –> 00:12:49.160

00:12:49.160 –> 00:12:51.160
Sometimes leave out the back door

00:12:51.160 –> 00:12:53.400
Especially people don’t see you leaving at the front

00:12:53.400 –> 00:12:57.360
You know I’m saying just mix it up a little bit. Okay, cuz routines are you know?

00:12:57.360 –> 00:13:00.220
You know, I’m gonna tell you something else. Okay, just something

00:13:00.220 –> 00:13:04.540
Situation where it’s knowing how it’s going around you. I’ll give you a prime example drives me nuts

00:13:04.540 –> 00:13:08.980
Not supposed to be around here because we live in a very rural area and right here. You really have to worry about

00:13:10.600 –> 00:13:12.600
Especially the the

00:13:12.600 –> 00:13:16.160
The dark because you know, we don’t have any street lights. I mean within right here. I’m driving this

00:13:16.160 –> 00:13:18.160
I drive my house all time and say I

00:13:18.160 –> 00:13:22.100
Said no lights on I’m watching husband and wife and their little kids get out of the car

00:13:22.100 –> 00:13:24.160
No lights have no idea what’s going on around

00:13:24.160 –> 00:13:24.560

00:13:24.560 –> 00:13:29.720
My house all my lights are in a timer and they’re all hooked up to my cell phone so I can turn them all off

00:13:29.720 –> 00:13:32.000
Why because I get out of the car. I want to I want light

00:13:32.000 –> 00:13:34.000
I want to see what’s going on when I walk out of my front door

00:13:34.000 –> 00:13:39.320
You know, I’m trying to say folks just just be situationally aware, you know in our area

00:13:40.320 –> 00:13:43.160
You know, I know especially situation awareness a lot

00:13:43.160 –> 00:13:47.540
over the last couple months because of the whole thing with Eric Frain, you know, he was

00:13:47.540 –> 00:13:52.520
Unfortunately, it’s kind of scary where he actually where everything will happen with the state police

00:13:52.520 –> 00:13:55.200
Only a couple miles from my wife and I live and you know

00:13:55.200 –> 00:13:58.320
And I’m just I’m only bringing this up because you know, I’ve heard from people tons

00:13:58.320 –> 00:14:01.560
I’ve you know, oh we live in the middle of nowhere, you know, nothing ever happens here

00:14:01.560 –> 00:14:06.800
But let me tell you folks that opened up a lot of eyes in my local area that things like this can happen

00:14:06.800 –> 00:14:08.800

00:14:08.800 –> 00:14:14.360
So just be you know aware of what’s going on around you. Okay?

00:14:14.360 –> 00:14:19.160
You know one of the things too, you know, I tell people all the time is

00:14:19.160 –> 00:14:26.200
You know, you always know what’s what’s going on around you? Okay, because it is so important. Okay

00:14:26.200 –> 00:14:32.040
You know one of the things you do get the you know, focus on you know your attention on your environment

00:14:32.040 –> 00:14:35.480
Okay, looking out for odd or threatening behavior

00:14:35.680 –> 00:14:41.460
You know, if you see a guy sitting next to you on the bus or on the you know on a train

00:14:41.460 –> 00:14:45.720
Okay, he’s playing around this pocket knife. I think would you probably get up and move?

00:14:45.720 –> 00:14:52.360
Okay, not saying he’s going to do anything to you, but put your little space between you and him. Okay, you know

00:14:52.360 –> 00:14:55.240
You know nothing – okay

00:14:55.240 –> 00:14:57.680
Say you’re going to a baseball game

00:14:57.680 –> 00:15:00.920
When you’re walking in know the locations of where the security

00:15:01.080 –> 00:15:05.900
Offices with security personnels because you may need to contact them something gets rowdier in a hand. Somebody has too many drinks

00:15:05.900 –> 00:15:10.140
You may need to call security to either have him removed or to ask him to calm down

00:15:10.140 –> 00:15:18.240
Okay, nothing folks when you’re going to a place you go into a movie theater look around make sure you can identify where the exit

00:15:18.240 –> 00:15:21.320
signs are just just little things like this can make the difference between

00:15:21.320 –> 00:15:27.080
Surviving and getting hurt or or making life just that much easier if there’s a situation

00:15:27.160 –> 00:15:31.200
Okay, they’re not even just saying something’s gonna go nuts. What if you have a fire in the movie theater?

00:15:31.200 –> 00:15:33.200
And you got to get out at least you know what your exits are

00:15:33.200 –> 00:15:38.800
Nothing to locating the stairwell. Okay, you’re you’re working. So you’re working in the same office building

00:15:38.800 –> 00:15:41.680
You know, you take the elevator up now. They’re no with the stairs are coffee

00:15:41.680 –> 00:15:45.240
There’s a fire so, you know where this is, you know walking around trying to look for him in a in a smut

00:15:45.240 –> 00:15:51.160
What if the place is covered in smoke? You don’t know whether the you got a look we can look for signs for the stairs

00:15:51.160 –> 00:15:53.000
You know what I mean?

00:15:53.000 –> 00:15:57.280
Okay, the other thing too if you if you’re like me and you do do traveling for your business

00:15:57.280 –> 00:15:59.280
Which I travel quite a bit for the business actually

00:15:59.280 –> 00:16:02.400

00:16:02.400 –> 00:16:08.440
Take note of any luggage on a ten package that are sitting there not saying be paranoid, but just take notice

00:16:08.440 –> 00:16:13.960
Notice me somebody drop that off walked away. Okay?

00:16:13.960 –> 00:16:21.280
Okay, nothing to if you’re a teacher at a school or even a kid we got a lot of younger people that listen to us

00:16:21.520 –> 00:16:26.080
They get no one’s a fire alarm pull this in your school compared to your classroom

00:16:26.080 –> 00:16:28.680
Cough a bit you need to pull it

00:16:28.680 –> 00:16:31.780
You know, I’m trying to copy me there’s me everybody evacuate the bill

00:16:31.780 –> 00:16:35.840
No, what that pull is know how to open I know how to pull it. That’s enough

00:16:35.840 –> 00:16:38.040
I’m doing kids and people know if I see phone I don’t how to do it

00:16:38.040 –> 00:16:43.800
They believe enough. I’ve actually had people tell me that just just little things like that when you’re walking through the airport

00:16:43.800 –> 00:16:48.420
Look around and just notice the people around you

00:16:49.300 –> 00:16:54.880
Notice what you know notice their rates their race ethnicity their attitude the look in their eyes

00:16:54.880 –> 00:16:59.580
Just notice these I’m not saying anything’s gonna happen to you. Just be prepared

00:16:59.580 –> 00:17:02.120
Know what’s going on around you?

00:17:02.120 –> 00:17:07.420
So you can you know protect yourself cough a bit if need be okay?

00:17:07.420 –> 00:17:10.720
You know, you know, like I said you just take

00:17:10.720 –> 00:17:16.760
Take precautions. Okay, you know, I think a pop another popular thing

00:17:16.760 –> 00:17:21.580
I tell people all the time if you’re walking in a bad neighborhood or if you’re walking through an area

00:17:21.580 –> 00:17:25.600
I’m just using New York because I’ve been to New York credit for my business, but if you’re walking through, New York

00:17:25.600 –> 00:17:31.840
You might want to have your you’re not saying it just if you’re walking through an alley or an area look around you

00:17:31.840 –> 00:17:33.260
It doesn’t look too good

00:17:33.260 –> 00:17:37.420
Maybe you might want to have your wife to go for engagement and put her in a pocket doesn’t mean she doesn’t love you

00:17:37.420 –> 00:17:41.560
It just don’t this way nobody gets away being a so, you know, don’t worry about your wife

00:17:41.560 –> 00:17:44.220
You know being assaulted or hurt for that ring

00:17:44.580 –> 00:17:49.020
Okay, because nine and ten times you have you know, somebody could cut her finger off trying to get the ring

00:17:49.020 –> 00:17:56.540
I mean it people sick. Okay, you know just just have have you know know what’s going on? Okay, I

00:17:56.540 –> 00:18:01.240
Don’t think you folks. Okay, I’ll give you another premise able you’re walking through day

00:18:01.240 –> 00:18:04.340
No, I’m not glad my wife and I went to Philly a couple years ago. Okay, just for a

00:18:04.340 –> 00:18:07.080
family event that we went to and

00:18:07.080 –> 00:18:10.260
Yeah, I know I started getting a little dark

00:18:10.620 –> 00:18:16.060
Since my wife is you know, we’re in downtown Philly. Why don’t we spend this one if I doesn’t get a cab?

00:18:16.060 –> 00:18:20.300
Let’s take us the 11 blocks to get back to our car and my wife says to me. Yeah, come on. It’s gonna be expensive

00:18:20.300 –> 00:18:21.480
You know what?

00:18:21.480 –> 00:18:24.580
Let’s just do it $20 is worth the safety of the three of us

00:18:24.580 –> 00:18:25.380

00:18:25.380 –> 00:18:27.860
And let me tell you when you’re traveling with a small child

00:18:27.860 –> 00:18:33.580
and you’re always gonna be a target because you have a little one and they can use that that child as

00:18:33.580 –> 00:18:36.180

00:18:36.180 –> 00:18:39.980
Bargaining chip to you know where they can threaten to hurt the child if you don’t do this you don’t do that

00:18:39.980 –> 00:18:42.100
So sometimes when you just need to think about

00:18:42.100 –> 00:18:48.300
Little things like that again. I’m not gonna try to make anybody scared to get up in the morning because that’s not my goal

00:18:48.300 –> 00:18:50.300
I’m just telling you guys

00:18:50.300 –> 00:18:53.720
being prepared preparedness is a very

00:18:53.720 –> 00:18:56.260
Real thing and really needs to be

00:18:56.260 –> 00:18:59.660
You know addressed. Okay, I’ll give you a prime example

00:18:59.660 –> 00:19:05.640
Okay in situational awareness training, which I have actually sat there because like I said, my company does deal a lot with security

00:19:05.640 –> 00:19:09.020
Okay, there’s actually have different conditions of social awareness

00:19:09.020 –> 00:19:16.500
Okay, certain people walk around with a condition of white meaning they have no idea what’s going on. Nothing at all. No idea

00:19:16.500 –> 00:19:23.460
Okay, then you have conditioned yellow, which means that you are aware of your surroundings, but you’re relatively relaxed

00:19:23.460 –> 00:19:27.660
They’re not expecting anything to happen. You’re still situationally aware, but you don’t see a threat at the time

00:19:27.660 –> 00:19:30.640
They have situational orange, which means that there is something

00:19:30.640 –> 00:19:35.060
call it your attention perhaps and that you should be

00:19:35.700 –> 00:19:40.700
You know, there’s a noise yelling suspicious behavior something has set you off and you’re not in danger yet

00:19:40.700 –> 00:19:43.820
You’re not but you something is is setting you off

00:19:43.820 –> 00:19:49.000
Okay, you know something’s not right then they have condition red in condition red

00:19:49.000 –> 00:19:51.780
this is where someone has

00:19:51.780 –> 00:19:57.860
Confronted you or something. Someone’s near you and you are starting to take action. You’re in the moving away. You’re grabbing your child

00:19:57.860 –> 00:19:58.780
You’re walking away

00:19:58.780 –> 00:19:59.260

00:19:59.260 –> 00:20:00.780
Then you have condition black

00:20:00.780 –> 00:20:05.780
Which is where someone near you is being attacked or you’re being attacked yourself and you have to take action

00:20:05.780 –> 00:20:10.260
The first thing you should do, you know, there’s always a list of what to do

00:20:10.260 –> 00:20:13.260
I’m not do the first thing you should do is go, you know

00:20:13.260 –> 00:20:17.180
Go over what you what do what you don’t want to do in your mind. Okay

00:20:17.180 –> 00:20:20.380
You know keep your safety

00:20:20.380 –> 00:20:24.020
Your personal safety is the number so not the person next to you

00:20:24.020 –> 00:20:28.940
Well, if it’s your child obviously, but there’s a person next to person next to you. Their safety is not your concern

00:20:30.180 –> 00:20:34.700
Your safety is your main objective in a situation like that is to

00:20:34.700 –> 00:20:39.500
Protect yourself and your children and your husband in your life. That’s your job

00:20:39.500 –> 00:20:44.040
And your number one priority is protecting yourself. Let everybody else worry about themselves

00:20:44.040 –> 00:20:49.940
And I’m not it’s not being rude. I’m just telling you that is what you’re taught when you go to these security classes

00:20:49.940 –> 00:20:52.940
Okay, one thing you should never be is in condition white

00:20:52.940 –> 00:20:58.080
Never because those are people that are oblivious to what’s going on. No, I think too

00:20:58.780 –> 00:21:01.260
If you’re in a situation orange red or black

00:21:01.260 –> 00:21:05.540
Number one rule number one thing with a do not panic

00:21:05.540 –> 00:21:07.840

00:21:07.840 –> 00:21:09.840
Okay, the other thing is to

00:21:09.840 –> 00:21:15.180
I’m not saying you can’t be rude to anybody. I’m telling you when you’re in a situation with people that you don’t know

00:21:15.180 –> 00:21:19.560
Make sure your you have

00:21:19.560 –> 00:21:24.380
Not a strong demeanor, but just make sure you’re not too nice be a little bit

00:21:25.020 –> 00:21:30.920
You know hold your shoulders up and show people stand your ground a little bit now the worst thing you could do in a situation

00:21:30.920 –> 00:21:33.820
Is if you see somebody across that it looks a little strange

00:21:33.820 –> 00:21:36.740
They go to reach for a gun or go over to them and push them

00:21:36.740 –> 00:21:42.260
What do you do do not try to intimidate people because nine ten times it will blow they will blow up more and

00:21:42.260 –> 00:21:44.700
That’s what you don’t want you want to get away

00:21:44.700 –> 00:21:47.600

00:21:47.600 –> 00:21:52.780
Okay, the other thing too is like I said be aware of being when you’re being condition yellow all the time

00:21:53.420 –> 00:21:57.800
Not you’re in no danger, but you’re just keeping your surroundings off and that’s what you need to do

00:21:57.800 –> 00:22:06.500
The other thing too is trust your gut instinct. Okay trust you’re gonna if you see something off doesn’t look right trust your gut instinct

00:22:06.500 –> 00:22:09.260
Hey, if you’re seeing something that’s

00:22:09.260 –> 00:22:15.100
Doesn’t look right and it just something just telling you. Okay, especially you women because you have women’s intuition

00:22:15.100 –> 00:22:19.560
We don’t have those guys were idiots. Okay, so now you you know

00:22:20.380 –> 00:22:23.540
Take your daughter and say hey, maybe let’s not get ice cream here

00:22:23.540 –> 00:22:28.300
Let’s walk a little bit further down the fair and get ice cream there because mommy just doesn’t want to get ice cream from here

00:22:28.300 –> 00:22:30.180
That’s another thing

00:22:30.180 –> 00:22:36.100
Don’t don’t try that if you have little children try not to freak them out because if they get freaked out everybody else around

00:22:36.100 –> 00:22:38.100
I’m gonna get freaked out nothing to folks

00:22:38.100 –> 00:22:44.420
You know, don’t be mr. Especially for you guys. Don’t be mr. Macho. Okay. Know the law

00:22:44.420 –> 00:22:47.860
Don’t say I’m gonna walk up to him and knock his teeth out because he’s scared of my kid

00:22:47.860 –> 00:22:51.300
No, that’s not what you want to do because you’re gonna get in trouble

00:22:51.300 –> 00:22:54.860
He didn’t do anything to you. You hit him first you could you fuse it like a ball

00:22:54.860 –> 00:23:00.420
He looks like he was gonna start a fight. So you started one with him. You know what I mean? Know the law, okay

00:23:00.420 –> 00:23:06.120
Again be alert at all time. Keep a low profile if you can at events

00:23:06.120 –> 00:23:09.660
Concerts movie just keep a low profile sit

00:23:09.660 –> 00:23:13.500
Let me tell you when you go to a movie theater sit in the back not sit in the front

00:23:13.500 –> 00:23:18.700
You know why if you’re sitting to the front watching the movie your back is to the rest of the crowd if you’re in the back

00:23:18.700 –> 00:23:23.700
You are looking at everybody else while you’re watching the movie somebody does something

00:23:23.700 –> 00:23:27.460
You can see them some of the people that are front of them can’t cuz the back of the head
