Keeping your babies safe, even when you’re not there

Well it’s that time of year again. The time of year when parents get excited about seeing their beautiful, amazingly well mannered, and extremely tidy children head back to school!

Of course you don’t do that “jump for joy” thing…

Cover & Concealment: It’s not just for the military anymore!

It’s a sad commentary on the state of the world that so many terms and issues that originally belonged to the military (like “cover & concealment”) have not only become common in the world of law enforcement, they have now become common in everyday civilians’ lives. I was just going over the FBI’s 2014 report on Active Shooter Study (covering 2000-2013). Surely enough, there is a continuous rise in the number and frequency of these shootings. If you’d like to…

Cranford Blackmon

In high school he volunteered on a rural fire department and…

Are you willing to be a hero?

Being a “hero.”  That’s sounds like a real stretch for most people. When you think of the term “hero,” what picture comes to mind?  A policeman?  A fireman?  A rescue worker? A soldier? They can all certainly be heroes.  But the term “hero” doesn’t just belong to those men and women in high-risk careers.  It belongs to that person who stopped to help a stranger, who helped to feed the hungry, and so many more. “Hero” isn’t a term we…

The Violence Conundrum

My life purpose seems to be a conundrum. I believe in non-violence.  I believe in peace.  I don’t like to hear about people hurting other people or animals.  And yet I was drawn to “fighting” from a very young age.  All my childhood games and playing revolved around being a soldier, a special agent, a police officer.  Surprisingly, I have now been all of those things and more.  I have been trained how to do very violent things in order…

Plants as Part of your Home Security Plan

By Cranford Blackmon One of the things we like to focus on in all of our programs is that safety and security doesn’t have to be complex or difficult. There are so many things you can do to make your home less of a target for bad guys.  We like to teach that the best way to make yourself and your home a “bad” target is by using layers of simple security. Using plants can add a few more layers…
