Pictured (standing, far right) is Scott Davis, retired United States Air Force and Sweetwater citizen, who taught â€śVerbal Judoâ€ť to members of the Big Country Medical Reserve Corps.
In a natural or man-made disaster where many citizens, especially children are involved, â€śVerbal Judoâ€ť is the means for calming a potentially volatile situation before it can manifest into physical violence. This kind of â€śconflict managementâ€ť involves using posture, body language, tone of voice, choice of words and many more examples were given by Mr. Davis.
BCMRC meets the second Monday of each month at Rolling Plains Hospital classroom and invites all citizens to come and learn and be ready to help in a disaster. Call 235-5463 and ask for Ray if interested.
