Managing your level of risk can greatly reduce your chance of becoming a victim. The purpose of the MRIR Message is to focus on one area each month that can put you and your loved ones at risk. This month’s topic is Recognizing Risk Levels and our guest experts are Greg Cooper, retired law enforcement, FBI and Homeland Security expert and a member of the KinderVision Law Enforcement Advisory Board, Ed Smart, member of the KinderVision Board of Directors, and Douglas Sebastian, Founder of KinderVision.

Read the information below and review the selected safety tips for the next 30 days. Make managing risk a way of life. Know what puts you and your family at risk and how to respond responsibly - and practice until that response is instinctive. That's what MRIR is all about.
