Disaster Crash Course

Crazy weather, unprecedented fires, chemical spills, financial resets... you can't flip on the TV without hearing about some kind of disaster - small or large scale. While we all hope that the world gets safer as we go along, a smart person will take the opportunity to "shore up their defenses" - and be better prepared for the next sucker punch.

If a crisis struck your area, and your family looked to you for protection and provisions, would you truly be ready to take care of them (and yourself)? Do you have the skills to extricate you and/or your family from life threatening scenarios? We all know that attitude, equipment and skills play a critical role in survival; but common sense will also tell you that there is a lot more to it than that. So how do you REALLY get prepared?

Our Disaster Crash Course removes the guesswork from emergency preparedness, and provides you with realistic, hands-on survival techniques.

In this class, you will gain the skills to survive in urban and suburban settings by learning how to:

• "Bug In" at home, at work, or even in a car during disasters and mayhem
• Find and disinfect safe drinking water when times get tough
• Turn your own home into a more efficient and secure shelter
• Provide your own food security with a surprisingly simple (and affordable) food storage plan 
• Use household items for a myriad of useful (but unintended) purposes
• Identify EDC (Every Day Carry) gear and items for a "Get Home Bag"

Plus so much more!


You'll even receive a take-home copy of our training manual on disaster preparedness.

This course will run on Saturday, September 7th, 2024 from 9 am to 5 pm.

Required Equipment: Bag lunch and drinks for yourself, appropriate clothing and wet weather gear for the expected weather, a pocket knife (any kind), and a pen to take notes.
