Course Description: 

        Street Smart is a self defense system for firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics that was developed by a veteran Frie Chief/Paramedic to teach firefighters, EMTs, and health care workers easy to use and easy to remember “soft” techniques from the nationally acclaimed CDT® Personal Protection Program and “hard” techniques from the internationally recognized Commando Krav Maga (CKM) and Krav Maga Force (KMF) programs.


Course Objective:

        This program is NOT to have firefighters or EMTs going toe to toe with a violent  person.
