Grid Down Crash Course

Cyber attacks, civil unrest, massive wildfires, and oh yeah - and a PANDEMIC. 2020 has been a crazy year. While we all hope that things get better, a smart person will take the opportunity to learn from these events - 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 Grid Down 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 an edible "insurance policy"
• Use household items for a myriad of useful, but unintended purposes
• EDC (Every Day Carry)
• Build Get Home Bag
• Urban Escape and Evasion
• As a special bonus for this class, we'll also include some Basic Self Defense Skills

You'll also receive your own copy of our training manual on disaster preparedness.

This course will run on Saturday October 10th, 2020 from 9 am to 5 pm.
