Situational Awareness

Knowing what is going on around you

Situational Awareness is being aware of what is happening around you in terms of where you are, where you are supposed to be, and whether anyone or anything around you is a threat to your health and safety.

Situational Awareness

  • What are you willing to die for?
  • Living life with a “when this happens” attitude not “If this happens”.
