The Greenfield Police Department presents FAST or Female Awareness and Survival Training, conceived and designed exclusively for women by instructors with many years of law enforcement and self defense training experience.
Every year, thousands of women are victimized nationwide. In many cases, women are targeted simply because the attacker believes women present an easy target and won't fight back. In the United States:
- 1 sexual assault occurs every 2 minutes
- 1 violent crime occurs every 5 seconds
- 172 Women are physically or sexually assaulted every hour
Personal safety is about learning how to limit your risks and knowing what to do if you are attacked. FAST teaches techniques to avoid dangerous situations and practical techniques and survival concepts to be used in the event of an attack.
