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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
