Tip of the week: Home Defense Planning

As I begin to prepare to take the NRA’s Personal Protection Outside of the Home course in October, I have been thinking about my home defense plan.  Regardless of the type of emergency, it is advised to take some time and talk with your family, spouse, or roommate what should be done in the event of an emergency.  Speaking generically about an emergency plan, a natural disaster plan is useful in the event of a fire or earthquake.  Expanding the topic for home burglaries or invasion, it is equally as useful if not more so.  Take the next 10 minutes and watch the video at the link below and review the steps to an effective home defense plan with your family. 

Rob Pincus of the Personal Defense Network discusses the Five Fundamentals of Home Defense tactics: Evade, Barricade, Arm, Communicate, and Respond. Thinking ahead of time about these five steps will empower you to respond more efficiently if you ever do have a threat inside your home, or trying to get into your home. Rob goes over each concept and gives examples of how you can employ them during an imminent home invasion scenario.
