It is not intended to frighten, but to empower and strengthen a person’s ability to survive.”

The presentation will be led by Vestal Police Captain Christopher Streno, a Susquehanna Valley graduate and Binghamton Youth Commissioner.

Due to the seriousness of the content, you must be 18 years of age to attend.
