Close Calls™ got started by an eclectic group of individuals, many with backgrounds in law enforcement and personal safety, but some that have experienced violence themselves. We came together to offer real solutions to the average woman, something that can be used anywhere and without much training.
We now have 27 Close Calls, our book for adult women that uses our newly developed science, Safety-from-Violence™, to quickly and easily show women how to be up to 99% safer immediately. We are currently working on a Close Calls book for college women.
Women can also take our live 27 Close Calls Basics™ class based on the book from Certified Close Call Academy Instructors™. This 6-hour class is taught online currently via a live meeting. Once the class is completed, participants will be able to navigate their daily lives much more safely immediately. We are currently seeking new instructors.
Close Calls is part of a group of organizations that promotes Safety-from-Violence™ and Predator-Denial-Methods™ including Strider Safety™ and Strider Lab, Inc. While Close Calls™ is devoted to women, our fellow organizations are able to branch out into other demographics and many different projects to keep people safe.
