During our HEFAT training course, when we weren’t trying to stay warm in the cold mountain air (come on Mexico, its June!) we were given the tools to help keep us safe, make good decisions under duress and to hopefully save lives, esp our own!
The training was not only informative but it was empowering to be learn how to stay safe in scenarios from minor self defense issues to being under fire. We were given the knowledge (and a few gadgets) to turn difficult situations to our favor which will hopefully keep us alive during real life situations.
This is the place to learn and make mistakes. Whether its during the first aid scenarios to live shooters to getting kidnapped, we learned the what will help keep us alive and what will put us in more danger. But most of all, teamwork and support from colleagues was the most vital lesson.
