Self Defense Tactics for Emergency Services

Stettler District Ambulance employees participated in a voluntary course addressing self defense tactics for emergency services in the fall early winter of 2016-2017.  The purpose of the course was to provide our practitioners with the tools and knowledge to safely handle and mitigate situations in which the potential for loss of life or injury presents itself in high risk situations.

The course addressed:

1.  Situational awareness - "Your mind is your first line of self defense". 

2.  Tactical positioning

3.  Analyzing situations

4.  Assessing solutions

5.  Reacting accordingly
