Listener Adam Heuslein sent in a video from February 2013 in Anchorage, Alaska and asked what we thought about area familiarization. Oh dear Lord is this hard to listen to. The officer that found a stolen truck on the road isn’t entirely sure where they are or which direction they are going. Why are we sharing it?

  • Know your area, where you are and how to get to where you need to go.
  • Be aware of road conditions and hazards. This is Alaska in February. It’s icy and cold and slippery.
  • Don’t put yourself in more harm than you need to be in. Be aware of creating your own exigency.
  • How can you describe where you are if you don’t know where you are?
