Refuse to be a Victim Workshop set for Nov. 12

The Patrick County Extension Office has scheduled a Refuse to be a Victim workshop to be held on Saturday, November 12 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Patrick Henry Community College’s Stuart campus.
This award-winning crime prevention program was created by the NRA and is designed to help ordinary citizens of any age navigate through daily life with the mental tools required to stay safe in every situation. The four-hour program provides personal safety tips and techniques to help men and women avoid dangerous situations and avoid becoming a victim. This is not a self-defense course.
Refuse to be a Victim is a personal safety program that teaches strategies you can use to avoid situations where self-defense is required. Criminals prefer easy targets. By making yourself more difficult to prey upon, you lessen your risk of criminal attack. Most of what you will learn will be things that you will recognize as good, common sense solutions; you’ll just wonder why they never occurred to you before. Session topics include mental preparedness, home and physical security, automobile, cyber and travel security, and much more. This is a “listen-and-take-notes” seminar, and questions are always encouraged. The fee for the program is $15 and includes instructor fees, program handbook and certificate of completion. Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook and a pencil to jot down ideas to remember. Advance registration is required due to limited seating. Call Terri Alt, Family and Consumer Science Extension agent, at 694-3341 for additional information and to register for this workshop.
