In this video, Tim Schmidt and Michael Martin explain exactly what a personal protection plan is, and how to integrate it into your own life. Topics include an explanation of situational awareness, the "color codes of awareness," and how to observe your environment to not only avoid areas that might be attractive to criminals, but to also look for things that can work to your advantage such as cover, concealment, and escape routes.
