The 5 Stages of Situational Awareness - Critical Mas EP 72

Situational awareness is often underestimated, but it's crucial for our well-being. The concept dates back to the teachings of Pierce Brooks, a LAPD officer who emphasized the importance of knowing where you are when you need to seek help. Colonel Jeff Cooper, a World War II combat Marine, introduced a four-color set of awareness codes. Some instructors prefer a five-color code, which adds Condition Black for a lethal assault in progress. Knowing the difference between when to capture a threat and when to use deadly force is essential, given the legal implications. Follow the "three stupids" rule: don't go to stupid places with stupid people and do stupid things. Pull your head out of your app. Colonel Cooper believed a well-adjusted person should maintain Condition Yellow throughout their daily life, without any adverse effects. Becoming a people watcher can be an unexpected benefit of heightened awareness, allowing you to appreciate the world around you in new ways. Practicing common sense and planning ahead are essential for personal safety, ensuring that you can preserve your quality of life when facing danger. Incorporate situational awareness into your life, even for those who don't carry firearms, as it enhances the overall quality of life and helps us recognize danger in time to escape it.

How can I prevent an overdose?

In 2020, fentanyl was involved in most overdose deaths in NYC. Across the US, fentanyl continues to drive overdose deaths along with other synthetic opioids. Fentanyl test strips are a tool that can identify the presence of fentanyl within unregulated substances; this knowledge can prevent an overdose when used with other risk reduction practices. This video was developed as part of the NYC Communities for Health (NYCC4H) Overdose FREE project to raise awareness of fentanyl, fentanyl test strips, and naloxone. Led by Directors Drs. Jennifer Manuel and Lance Keene and Program Manager R. Yamir Gomez Carrasco, NYCC4H works to address substance use and HIV prevention and treatment priorities at the individual, family, and community level. โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ” Additional Information โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€ ๏ปฟhttps://nycc4h.org/ โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ” Social Media โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€ https://twitter.com/NYCC4H https://www.instagram.com/nycc4h/ โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ” Science Animated โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€ http://www.sciani.com/ https://twitter.com/Sci_Ani https://www.facebook.com/scianimation/ โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ” #fentanyl #overdose #riskreduction โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”โ”
