Along with firearm safety, our students are trained in personal safety strategies to use at home and away.  Our courses teach students to maintain situational awareness and have a mental toolkit of options ready in case the unexpected happens.  What if I hear banging on the door in the middle of the night?  What if the people standing by my parked car are planning a purse snatching?  What if weather turns bad during our hike?   Safety is the first priority for i-e-c.
