'Redmond Ready Day 3' and Women's Safety Class to Take Place in January

The Office of Emergency Management is hosting “Redmond Ready Day 3” on Jan. 19. Redmond police will present a free Women's Personal Safety class on Jan. 24.

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is hosting “Redmond Ready Day 3” from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Road NE). The City’s “Redmond Ready”campaign encourages citizens to be trained in three areas: 

1)    First Aid

2)    CPR

3)    Personal preparedness 

Redmond Ready Day provides training in all three areas with the only cost being a discounted rate of $14 for first aid and CPR training (usually costs much more). The two-hour personal preparedness class is free. Seats are limited so register ASAP at www.redmondready.org. If you have questions, call Janeen at 425-556-2251.

 

The Redmond Police Department (RPD) will present a free Women's Personal Safety class on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the RPD Training Room (8701 160th Avenue NE…usually about 90-ish minutes). 

Please note this is not a self-defense class, this is a proactive approach to safety rather than "reactive" and is suitable for ages 15 and older. To RSVP, please email mdowd@redmond.gov and feel free to forward to others.  

Some of the topics covered include:

  • How to prevent becoming the victim of assault or robbery.
  • Potentially dangerous situations and how to avoid them.
  • How to handle "road rage" and prevent accidents.
  • The pros and cons of weapons for personal security.
  • How to make a safety plan.
