As your Region 5 Director, we have completed another educational event for region 5. EVE4EMS/Fire, which is a self-defense class for emergency workers. I had 12 people Participate in the class with a capacity of 24. I really wish I could have had more participation. The 12 who took the class learned a skill that none can take away from them and while I hope they never have a need for the skill, it will save them bodily injury if ever needed. I would like to thank all the people who attended for their hard work and dedication. Click here to view comments about the class from Pine Bluff’s Fire & Emergency Services.

Please keep in mind that I have another educational event for Region 5 coming July 18,19, and 20. The class is; Child Passenger Safety and at the end of class you will be a car seat technician able to assist family, friends and anyone else in your community to instill car seats properly. The class is free with lunch provided each day plus 24 hours CEU’s. Where else can you receive 24 hours CEU’s and lunch free? For information contact; Ronald Russell @ 870-692-1927 or email to
