TRAVEL SAFETY TIPS & TRICKS
Stay Safe in Planes, Taxis & Hotels
From burglaries to accidents and scams, listen to the Big Blend Radio interview with security specialist Jason Hanson who shares his tips on how to stay safe in airplanes, taxis and hotel rooms.
When Jason Hanson joined the CIA in 2003, he never imagined that the same tactics he used as a CIA officer for counterintelligence, surveillance, and protecting agency personnel would prove to be essential in every day civilian life. In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary. He has also honed his “positive awareness” – a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior – on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation.
With the skill of a trained operative and the reliability of a suburban dad, Jason Hanson brings his top-level training to everyday Americans in his New York Times best-seller “Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life: A Former CIA Officer Reveals Safety and Survival Techniques to Keep You and Your Family Protected”. A successful contestant of ABC’s reality show Shark Tank, Jason teaches everyday citizens to defend themselves at his Spy Escape and Evasion school.
