ULTIMATE URBAN SURVIVAL
The city you once called home collapses and you suddenly find yourself in a hostile concrete jungle. What do you do? How do you survive and thrive for an extended period of time? This course provides the necessary skills and training to survival for an extended period in an urban or even suburban setting.
 
Topics covered include sheltering in place vs. evacuation strategies, food and equipment storage, home heating, water storage and purification, grid-down repairs, off-grid medical care, long-term survival supply acquisition (urban foraging), urban trapping (to acquire protein), and home defense.  Kevin was featured as a subject matter expert on the History Channel's After Armageddon, which deals with urban survival. 

 


OFF GRID MEDICAL CARE

This class, taught by an emergency room Physician, and will focus on medical care when structured care is no longer available. The focus will be on trauma care care of gunshot and knife wounds, broken bones, amputations, and other types of injuries that may be encountered following the collapse of medical care. The class will also include suturing, administering IVs, and setting bones. It will also include administration of medicine, and other longer-term treatments.
 
This class does NOT certify you for any type of recognized medical care, and is designed only for preparation against a time where medical care is not available.

BUGGING OUT - EVACUATION

This course is designed for anyone who has come to the realization that there may come a time to evacuate home and travel to a safer place. You will learn the art of bugging out, leaving your home with your dependents and loved ones. Whether it be a natural disaster, a terrorist attack, the breakdown of social order, a chemical spill, or just severe weather, you will be prepared to leave quickly and travel safely to your destination.
 
You will learn when to evacuate, how to properly plan a bug out, what supplies you will need and how to have them where they are needed. You will be taught the order of priorities for survival and travel during a social breakdown that will accompany almost any disaster. There will be detailed discussions on gear, what is truly necessary and what is fantasy. Shelter, water, fire, food, packs, protection and security, emergency signaling and communication, medical, trading and bartering, land navigation and more will be discussed.  
 
You will learn how to stay low profile, not attracting unwanted attention while moving and camping. The final exercise will be great fun, as you go outdoors and test your skills and equipment in a series of skill stations practicing your priority skill sets while on the move. This will give you a realistic view of your skill level, how your equipment really performs, and what you need to work on. 



EXITING THE GRID - PROTECTING PRIVACY in an AGE OF SURVEILLANCE

There are over 30 million surveillance cameras in the United States. The average citizen appears on these cameras many times each day. Every credit card and debit card transaction is tracked and buying behavior categorized and sold. Social networking pages track your online behavior. Your cell phone can pinpoint your location, and it is rumored that the NSA tracks every conversation, listening for key words. The discount card you use at the grocery store tracks your buying preferences. Bottom line is that our lives are constantly being monitored. A grid of surveillance.
 
Exiting the Grid is for anyone desiring to reclaim their privacy. We will look at the myriad ways your privacy is compromised by seemingly innocent methods and sometimes by devious design. We will learn specific methods that you can use to avoid giving away information and how to counter electronic surveillance. You will learn how to hide your electronic trail. You will learn how to remove yourself from the Grid.

Kevin hosted the History Channel's, OFF THE GRID: Million dollar Manhunt. which deals with many of the issues addressed in this class.
 


URBAN ESCAPE & EVASION
While on an international business trip, you are kidnapped and held for ransom. Or, a terrorist attack closes the business district of your city and you find yourself in a dangerous, chaotic fix. How do you stay alive? How do you get to safety on your own?
 
This class provides leading-edge skills to civilians who live or work in challenging urban environments or who may find themselves in a destabilizing urban area during a crisis. Topics covered include
covert movement (day vs. night), the judicious use of caches, understanding urban baseline movement and urban awareness training, the use of disguises, lock picking, escaping from unlawful custody, obtaining and driving local transportation, the use of "specialized" urban gear, and instruction on how to develop urban escape and evasion go-bags.
A one day urban escape scenario is held the final day of class.

Final Thought

Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy.
