CARE Overview

Each day we encounter situations beyond our control.  Our health and safety, and that of our families, friends and co-workers, are put at risk -- by events ranging from extreme weather conditions to widespread power outages to civil unrest or active hostile shooter situations.  The CARE curriculum provides the tools necessary to keep you, your loved ones and your co-workers safe and secure. 

What is community resilience?

It is the ability always to know the risks inherent in your daily life, know how to mitigate those risks and be trained in the actions and counter-measures that can save your life and that of others.  The CARE curriculum will not only teach you the principles needed to survive but make your response second nature.  You will not have time to think about what has happened and what you need to do.  Valkyries will teach you how to know intuitively what needs to be done and how to do it.

Baby Sitter Preparedness Certification

All of us have engaged babysitters who were friends of the family or neighbors or friends of friends – without knowing how they would handle a life-threatening or other hostile incident.  Don’t take that risk or subject your loved ones to it.  Insist that any baby sitter you engage is fully trained and certified with a standardized American Safety and Health Institute Certification.  And make persons you know who perform baby sitter functions are aware of this certification. Learn More Here


Aware and Prepared Personal Resilience Series

Each of us needs to be trained in how to be “Aware and Prepared” for whatever we may encounter in a given day of our lives.  We may be on a train that suffers a derailment.  We may be in a building in which someone has planted a bomb.  We may be in a grocery store that is held up by heavily armed perpetrators.  What do we do?  What do we NOT do?  This course will teach you. Learn More Here.
