Best Safety Practices

Most of us are looking forward to spring and a change for the warmer in our weather.  But one important part of our lives has no season—and that’s the desire to be safer. That’s why Gold Coast Neighbors is bringing together experts to share their professional knowledge of what you should know to keep yourself and those around you safer.  Knowing the best ways to be safe won’t make you warmer, but it will make you feel more secure and happier.

Our March 27 program, “Best Safety Practices,” will feature two presenters who are back to meet with us by popular demand. GCNA-audience-favorites Sergeant Chris Schenk, Community Policing Office, CAPS—18th District, Chicago Police Department, and Albert Medina, Paramedic in Charge and Director of Simulation, Chicago Fire Department, will share new safety initiatives with us.

Both presenters will describe the current, and best, procedures and techniques to use in life-threatening emergencies. Sergeant Schenk will discuss safety in our streets, our cars, and in our residences. He will also share the strategic initiatives being used to address crime in our district and how this benefits our Gold Coast community.
Albert Medina will explain the life-saving techniques that he is sharing with the community in his new Simulation Training position. He will also give the details of what we need to know about saving lives in a high-rise emergency.

Our presentation on safety is one of a series of community outreach, involvement activities, and programs for GCNA members and others who live in and around our community. These presentations are geared to the special issues we all face under the umbrella of life and safety issues.
