Situation Awareness Class at ICC North

The Peoria County Sheriff's Office will present "Situation Awareness – A Life Safety Skill," on February 20 at 6 pm on Illinois Central College’s North Campus. This free workshop is offered through ICC's Adult Community Programs. Registration is required.

Simply stated, situation awareness is being more aware of your surrounding and having the ability to make assessments based on what you notice. Often we go about our day – shopping, doctor’s office, school, work – without paying much attention to things around us. Situation awareness is a developed skill that can make you more attune to your environment, such as the people you are passing, the infrastructure you’re near, and the objects around you. This allows a person to help recognize when something is “off” or a threat.

Join Captain Doug Gaa of the Peoria County Sheriff’s Office as he walks through situation awareness as it applies to home, public places, suspicious behaviors, suspicious items, awareness of points of entry and exit, and available options when facing an issue of concern.

The class is free but registration is required. Register online at www.icc.edu/acp or call ICC at (309) 690-6900 for more information.
