As the year 2020 draws to a close, we are still struggling to make sense of this pandemic.
Wether you live in Horry County, Georgetown County, South Carolina or somewhere else in the USA, we just know your life has been affected!
Kids are learning virtually, seniors are homebound due to the danger of being exposed to COVID-19, millions are still out of work and others are working from home, and we are seeing yet another spike of new cases.
Personal safety is important to us. We want our customers and friends to be safe as well.
It’s safe to say things will be different.
Each family will need to decide for themselves how to navigate the unknown of a pandemic holiday season.
We are glad however to have discovered some great resources for those who need ideas and suggestions.
As many people in the United States begin to plan for fall and winter holiday celebrations, CDC offers the following considerations to help protect individuals and their families, friends, and communities from COVID-19. These considerations are meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which holiday gatherings must comply. When planning to host a holiday celebration, you should assess current COVID-19 levels in your community to determine whether to postpone, cancel, or limit the number of attendees.
For parents who are concerned about potential COVID-19 exposure a ‘traditional Trick or Treat‘ activity might pose, here are some lower risk Halloween activity ideas.
While it’s tempting, the CDC urges all of us to do our part and avoid large gatherings and close contact with people outside our safe zone.
Here are their recommendations of activities to avoid:
While we all want to be able to be with family during the holidays, it might be wise to adjust your plans now to only get together with family members who are local to you. Avoid unnecessary travel, including airplanes.
Instead, use technology to connect virtually and make alternative plans.
Be safe. Stay healthy.
Unfortunately, many of us don’t know ‘how we will react’ until we are attacked.
You can never really completely prepare for the unexpected – but you can practice!
Personal safety is a huge concern and should be on top of your list of things to ‘prepare for”.
This list should also include
So how will you react when attacked?
Heather of Strand Security was held at gunpoint during a store robbery.
What she did was…FIGHT!
Her message to all of us is very clear.
NEVER GIVE UP
There is always something you can do, there is always a way to fight.
She learned this in high school during a self-defense class; she credits this class, and the knowledge she received, with saving her life during the armed robbery!
You know what else she’s doing?
Just last week, Strand Security announced their next Self Defense Class!
On Dec. 3, you need to be there with us, so can be prepared should you ever be attacked.
Listen to, and watch, this video; both Heather and Dorien talk about why this self-defense class is so important and they each give you ONE THING they learned from the last class they took!
Don’t YOU want to know what to do when attacked, and practice those moves in a safe environment?
Join us on Saturday December 3 for the next self defense class.
If you don’t want to go alone, we get that, too!
Grab a friend and sign up for our next class and if you don’t know whom to ask, check out this AWESOME list of people in your life who need self-defense!

We can’t wait to see you on Saturday December 3 in Murrells Inlet!
