The largest obstacle to personal safety is you. Many people think "It can't happen to me" or "what's going to happen, is going to happen".
An attack against you or your family, a fire in your home or office, a potential fatal auto incident, or some other disaster can take place at any time. But you have the power to be IN CHARGE of what happens to you and your family by taking active responsibility for your own security.
