Street Smarts

Unfortunately, we are reminded too often how disaster can strike at any time from a variety of reasons outside our control. What if it happened to you?  Would you know what to do if someone was bleeding or stuck under rubble and needed your help? This 8 part Learn It! Challenge will take less than 30 minutes of your time, and will help you be more confident should you ever find yourself in a situation that requires you to be the first responder. This is a FREE challenge, but you will need to be logged in to earn your Street Smarts BASICS badge and 240 LEARN It! Points.

The world can prove to be a dangerous place…from natural disasters; domestic and international terrorism; rising mental health crisis with violence; and even war.  

These “disasters” can happen anywhere…in a school, a movie theatre, while at home, or vacationing in a distant land.

The bottom-line…you should be prepared to know the Resiliency and Rescue BASICS because sometimes,  you will need to become the first responder. 

Here are 8 tips to sharpen your readiness skills, provided by Dr. Robert Gillio, a veteran of 911, Hurricane Katrina, Boston Marathon bombing, and School Shooting response, recovery, and lessons learned reports.

Other Experts will be contributing as demand for their subject matter expertise is needed.

Please join us at our Street SMARTS BASICS group here…as always, My Healthy BASICS Academy and Community are FREE to join.
