Let's Be Safe Out There
Husson University 340 County Road Westbrook

Situational awareness may be the new "it" term, but many do not understand what it means or how we need to use it.

This seminar, presented by Randee McDonald, will discuss how to use the most powerful weapon available - our brain - to avoid defensive situations. We will also touch on the use of pepper spray, personal alarms, and flashlights when the need arises.
