No Victims’ author talks about children and gun safety on Atlanta AM1160 on the Ready Radio Show

Doug and Amy

Many thanks to AM1160 Ready Radio Show hosts Doug and Amy for allowing No Victims to hijack today’s show to talk about the critical topic of children and gun safety! The hour just flew by, but we were able to cover some important safety messages and resources for parents (whether or not they own guns) with children in three age groups: Pre-K to third grade, fourth to sixth grades, and seventh grades and above. If you missed the broadcast, you can listen to a Podcast or download an mp3 of the show.

Thanks also to TruPrep, who sponsor the Ready Radio Show!

Finally, if you would like to bring either of the free children’s gun safety lectures mentioned on the show to your own community, please:

  • If you are within driving distance of Metro Atlanta, please contact No Victims via the Contact page on this site to schedule free a presentation at your school, house of worship, youth group, or community center.
  • If you are elsewhere in the country and would feel comfortable presenting this content yourself, please please contact No Victims via the Contact page on this site to request free presentation packs that include the PowerPoint presentations, speaker’s notes, flyer templates and parent resource sheets.

Notebooks.com: Use Google Voice to enhance your family’s safety

Google VoiceIn a new article on Notebooks.com, No Victims’ author shares a way to use a free Google Voice account as an “emergency alert” system for your family:

“CREATE A FAMILY “EMERGENCY ALERT” Set up a Google Voice number that is set to ring every adult family members home, office and mobile phone simultaneously, and that is known to every member of the family (including elderly or infirm family members and children old enough to understand when to use it). In the event of a bonafide emergency (medical emergency, car accident, criminal encounter, etc.) and *after* calling 911 if appropriate, a family member can dial the Emergency Alert number and communicate the details of the emergency to the first adult family member to pick up. This maximizes the possibility that an adult family member will get the call and answer it because it is coming from the family Emergency Alert number and gets another adult family member involved in dealing with the emergency as quickly as possible.”

Oconee County Sheriff’s Office to teach Refuse To Be A Victim(R)

The Athens Banner-Herald reported earlier this week that the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office will shortly begin offering Refuse To Be A Victim(R) seminars to residents of the county directly, and through community groups who wish to organize seminars.  No Victims’ founder recently had the opportunity to meet Chief Deputy Weems and Corporal Lowe, who recently completed the requirements to become certified to lead the seminars.  Oconee County is lucky to have two such experts willing to dedicate their time and effort to this worthy cause.

For those who do not live in Oconee County or have equally concerned and committed Police Departments or Sheriff’s Offices, please consider reaching out to your local law enforcement agency and asking them to follow the example set by the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office.

For those in and around Atlanta who wish to organize a seminar for their community, house of worship or neighborhood association, please visit the Crime Prevention tab at the top of this page to find out how to do so for no cost other than the required student materials.
