Situational Awareness Training in Clearwater January 28
First, what is Situational Awareness and why does it matter?
Situational Awareness training had it’s roots in the military. From the breadth of the various definitions, it should be clear that situation awareness, as viewed by many working in the area, is a considerably broader concept than that conventionally held by the military community who concentrated on spacial tactical relationships (red team vs blue team).
With all the active shooter events that have occurred over the past couple years, there has been many discussions about related issues ranging from prevention to response. For details on our discussion with the Florida D.O.E., see our Situational Awareness Guide.
The ESS Global Corp Situational Awareness Training in Clearwater/ St Petersburg / Tampa helps individuals and understand human factors, reduce the impact of situational awareness barriers, and improve decision making under stress.
See Something – Say Something
For years, the federal government has been pushing their awareness program, “If you see something, say something.” It’s a great strategy to identify troubling people and situations. But in order for it to work, we need to practice situational awareness, and the reality is we don’t.
How is this happening?
From Colorado to California to Paris, to right here in Florida, there have been mass attacks, not to mention the everyday personal assaults, carjacking and robberies.
Most people have no idea about situational awareness.
It is an unfortunate fact that most people stumble through life, blissfully unaware of the world around them. They remain preoccupied in their own thoughts of work, personal problems or other mundane issues, with no thought given to their immediate environment. But, by not paying attention to their surroundings, they place themselves in needless jeopardy.
To fully understand this phenomena, go take a seat in the nearest hospital emergency room waiting area one evening. Observe the unfortunate people who come in for treatment and you will begin to understand this point.
You will see that roughly 20% of the individuals are actually sick, so you can ignore them. Some others are overdoses so you can ignore them as well.
The remaining majority are there because they did not pay attention to their environment. These will be the folks who walked off the edge of the loading dock, stepped off roofs, backed into running machinery, touched a red hot stove burner, stepped into the path of a vehicle, or allowed a thug to walk right up to them unnoticed and hit them in the head with a brick, brandished a knife, or worse, pulled out a gun and shot them.
You can be inattentive, and oblivious in your environment day-in and day-out and be lucky, until one day the odds catch up with you and you are injured.
The same exact principle applies to the street; individuals, businesses, colleges, churches and more. You can be inattentive and oblivious and get away with it until your path crosses the path of a criminal or intersects with violent situation. The vast majority of criminals are opportunists, who only strike when presented with a viable, easy opportunity.
An “easy mark”.
Remove the opportunity and you remove the risk to yourself.
And That is Why Situation Awareness Training Matters!
Developing awareness is a skill and the ESS Global Situational Awareness Training will give you the skill sets that last a lifetime. At first it will seem very awkward and self-conscious, but with practice, it will become seamless and subconscious. You will start to pick up on more and more subtle rings of disturbance and more complex stimuli from the world around you. Eventually, some people may even think you are psychic as they begin to notice how you seem to sense events before they unfold.
This Situational Awareness Training in Tampa is a 3-4 hour class depending on class size and focus. You will be out in time for lunch, and you’ll be much more aware as well.
