Well-known instructors Jim Cobb and Curt La Haise offer you four fundamental courses, all in one day and for a grand total of $70! Whether you’re a long-time prepper, a newcomer, or just interested in learning life-saving skills, this full day seminar is designed just for you!
Realistic Bug Out Planning – One of the most common topics in the prepper/survival world is bugging out. The subject is rife with myths, half-truths, and tons of truly ridiculous information. In this class, we’ll take a practical look at emergency evacuation–what it means and how to prepare for it.
Bug Out Bags 101 — Learn what should be in your bug out bags, get home bags, and other emergency kits. We’ll review every component in detail and talk about different options for all budget levels, including a few items you can make at home. We’ll also talk about common mistakes and items that are often forgotten.
Personal Safety Planning — When you can’t avoid danger, it’s critical to know how to defend yourself. In this class, we’ll discuss the survival mindset, physical defense skills, less-than-lethal and lethal protection tools.
Stop the Bleed — Twenty percent of people who die from traumatic injuries could survive with the aid of quick bleeding control. We’ll review simple tactics — pressure, dressings, and tourniquets — that you can use to stop blood loss before professional help arrives.
You must register and pay in advance for this full day training event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 608-225-8287. Registration deadline is Friday, April 13th.
