    Male or female, adult or child - KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. Pay attention to your surroundings and know what to look for as for warning signs. If something seems off - even if you don't know why - walk away. Come back with someone else - better to feel stupid than to get hurt.

    Oh, and if you see a LOT of matchboxes and paint thinner cans, leave and call the cops. Okay, that one was more something I had to know as a DIS than you will need in a parking lot - but don't approach a home with a lot of weird trash.

    Depending on exactly what method they use, it will blow UP the house. Or it might gas everyone in it.

    And the tweekers are likely to be full on nut cases.

    Like I said - leave, call the cops.


    One of our FBI trainers told a story about going to raid a trailer out by a marsh. Guy runs out the back and starts trying to swim for the opposite shore - minus the being able to swim part. The FBI agents just stood there as he hollered for help - they were kind enough to yell back for him to stand up. The water was only knee deep.

    Yes, I assumed that was the point he was making.

    So, besides situational awareness, any other tips too avoid being a damsel in distress? Ooh! If a bad guy tries to force you into a car, do everything in your power to not go in there. Things won't end well!
