City of Redmond hosts two safety classes in January

Two great opportunities below—don’t miss out!
The Redmond Police Department will be presenting a free Women's Personal Safety class on Thursday, January 24th at6:30 p.m. at the RPD Training Room (8701 160th Avenue NE…usually about 90-ish minutes). Please note this isnot a self-defense class, this is a proactive approach to safety rather than "reactive" and is suitable for ages 15 and older. To RSVP,please email and feel free to forward to others.
Some of the topics covered include:
  • How to prevent becoming the victim of assault or robbery.
  • Potentially dangerous situations and how to avoid them.
  • How to handle "road rage" and prevent accidents.
  • The pros and cons of weapons for personal security.
  • How to make a safety plan.
Also, the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is hosting “Redmond Ready Day 3” on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Road NE) from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. The City’s “Redmond Ready” campaign encourages citizens to be trained in three areas:
1) First Aid
2) CPR
3) Personal preparedness
Redmond Ready Day provides training in all three areas with the only cost being a discounted rate of $14 for first aid and CPR training (usually costs much more). The two-hour personal preparedness class is free. Seats are limited so register today at If you have questions, call Janeen at 425-556-2251.
Be safe,
