Hostile Environment Awareness Training - 6 travel safety tips

SSC offers a unique course that has been developed exclusively for travelers into hostile environments.  A course that teaches you the skills and knowledge to protect yourself and your loved ones.

There are two prevailing attitudes regarding personal safety and security: Be prepared; or, “It will not happen to me”.  What is your view (enter online survey)?

After attending a course, I have now developed and practice my own personal safety and security routine when traveling.  Let me share them with you.

6 steps for traveling safely:

  1. Be prepared. Ask yourself the night before you travel: “What have I forgotten”?
  2. Have a plan. If you are forced to evacuate or face a life-threatening situation, what will you do?
  3. Be familiar with your Everyday Carry (EDC) kit. Know how to navigate, call for help, survive unlawful captivity or walk away from a crash.
  4. Maintain excellent situational awareness. More than anything, this will help you survive in any hostile environment.
  5. Just breathe. Do not panic. You will learn an effective and easy technique that will prevent you from panicking.
  6. Stay hydrated. We do not drink enough when travelling, yet we must stay hydrated. You will learn how to get clean drinking water from anywhere and stay hydrated.
