Preparedness Planning: Next Class – Saturday, August 13th – FREE!

One day class approximately 5/6 hours long depending on discussion time. Cost is FREE but MUST register to attend.

This is NOT the traditional food and water discussion that most think of. Preparedness involves over 15 different topics of information and is far more complex than most understand it to be. This class establishes the goal setting and planning process for emergency situations. From the basic situation to the extreme, we discuss levels of preparedness that would be needed for survival situations short term and long term. There are many categories of planning involved and each is broken down into real life information. This is an interactive class that discusses the many situations requiring pre-planning and everyday lifestyle changes to remain ready for any emergency. This is a MUST class for anyone that wants to be be prepared for nearly any emergency large or small. Be prepared to discuss your concerns and plan to take lots of notes. Your preparedness level will be greatly increased by attending this class.

Urban/Wilderness Survival: Scheduled for a Fall Date. Will be announced.
Two-day class with optional overnight camping. Cost is $189

This is a “Hands On” class and is for the more serious survival person that is interested in the techniques of sustaining life in an emergency situation. This class is not overly challenging but aimed at the information of surviving the elements. The wide range of basic survival requirements are discussed, demonstrated and applied so that each student understands the many challenges associated with urban and wilderness experiences.
Overnight (camping) is available to those wishing to participate. While not required, it is highly recommended. It will require your own camping equipment – tent, sleeping bag, etc.
Fresh water is provided, but water sourcing and purification techniques will be covered.
Food is required for the student to bring. Those camping will participate in a campfire meal provided.
Students will finish this class with a very different perspective of what survival actually entails and the many challenges faced.
Much more information will be available to those planning to take this class including a list of suggested items to bring.

Land Navigation: Don’t Ever Get Lost! Will be scheduled in the fall of 2022.
One day class from 9am to 5pm. Cost is $99

There are many different types of maps. Confusing as they might be, we explain the uses and remove the unknown. Map reading is essential and knowing where you are and where you are going is a must skill.
While electronic devices are covered (GPS, etc), this class concentrates on the more primitive use of directional skills, and especially compass skills. Classroom time is essential to provide instructive techniques, and the added practical exercises will back up your class training.
Field exercises will be challenging and provide the confidence needed to NOT GET LOST and/or FIND YOUR WAY BACK.
All equipment will be provided but students are encouraged to bring any navigational device to the class.
