The Basic Principles Of Training


Further Unlimited No-Fault Auto Insurance Savings Forthcoming Further Unlimited No-Fault Auto Insurance Savings Forthcoming More savings on auto insurance to many policy holders are coming in 2021. For years, Michigan drivers have been burdened with the highest, or among the highest, automobile insurance rates in the country. Bi-partisan reform signed into law in 2019 has helped alleviate some of pain with reductions in personal injury protection (PIP) rates and Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) fees. Beginning last July 2nd, MCCA fees dropped from $220 per vehicle to $100. This past week, the MCCA announced that fee will be cut again, now to $86 per vehicle, effective July 1st, 2021. This applies to policyholders that choose to keep unlimited automobile no-fault insurance. State Senator Lana Theis of Brighton Township said in a release, that while this reduction is welcome and overdue, she is encouraging motorists to call their agent or even shop around to make sure they are getting the best policy and price they can, especially if they have qualifying health insurance coverage. Governor Gretchen Whitmer also issued a release following the announcement of the reduction, stating that she is pleased that reforms are continuing to result in greater savings than required by law, and that in these difficult times, it is more important than ever that Michiganders see rate relief.


CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — A Chicago police officer said he put his training to good use when he was off-duty and came upon a fire earlier this week in the Old Town neighborhood. Officer John Hanlon, who works in the 19th District on the North Side, was running errands when he saw thick black smoke coming from an apartment building on the 500 block of West North Avenue. He saw a man punching out a small window with smoke billowing around him. The man "took a nose dive to the ground," Hanlon told WBBM, and the officer knew he needed help. The man's arm was bleeding badly and it was clearly broken. Hanlon, it turned out, had a first-aid kit in his personal car. He grabbed it and went to work, putting a tourniquet on the man's arm and applying a pressure bandage to slow the bleeding while awaiting an ambulance. He's used the medical training he receives each year on numerous occasions, "buying time," he said for people who have been shot, stabbed or had other traumatic injuries. Hanlon has been a CPD officer for six years.
