What is the Survival Mindset We All Need?

  2. 2. If disaster struck, whom would you want at your side, helping you? A doctor? Lawyer? Policeman? Teacher? While they all have special skills, I submit that the overwhelming choice would be a Special Forces Green Beret. Are you Prepared?
  3. 3. S U R V I V A L S - Size up the situation, your surroundings, yourself, and your equipment. U - Use All Your Senses; Undue Haste Makes Waste R - Remember Where You Are V - Vanquish Fear and Panic I - Improvise V - Value Living A - Act Like the Natives L - Live by Your Wits, But for Now, Learn Basic Skills In Special Forces we’re taught that the word SURVIVAL provides you with the first letters of the keys you need
  4. 4. The Three Stages of Disaster Mild Disaster: Do you know what to do if you were snowed in for a few days? Or the power was out? Moderate Disaster: Can you survive being stranded in your car for a few days? Extreme Disaster: Are you ready for a large Catastrophe?
  5. 5. Simple rules of: 1. You can go 3 minutes without air. 2. You can go 3 hours without regulated body temperate. 3. You can go 3 days without water. 4. You can go 3 weeks without food. PRIORITIZE ACCORDINGLY
  6. 6. Do you have a plan in place And the Equipment ready to Deal with disaster? Clothing Footwear Grab & Go Bag Survival Gear
  7. 7. Can you make an A-Team? In a Catastrophe who can you count on? I am not a fan of picking strangers for your survival team (Rick learned this!). The level of trust needed, especially in an extreme emergency, is very, very high. One way to figure out your team: Ask yourself: do I trust this person, these people, with my life?
  8. 8. One of many Things You’ll Need Grab & Go Bag • Know how much you can carry • Plan your gear based on situation and environment • Have several bags • Car, Home, Place of Work • Pre-Pack •Food, Water, Tools, Tent, Sleeping bag, Fire, Flashlight, Ziplock bags, Gloves, I.D., Weapons • Make sure its water-repellant if not waterproof
  9. 9. No matter how hard it gets, Never quit! A survivor must have: Above all a determination to survive. All else is secondary. Fear serves a purpose, but too much fear can paralyze.
  10. 10. Okay. Let’s Take a Break! • Overwhelmed? • We all are. • That’s why I’ve written my survival manuals • Step by step, common sense, guides to everything that just overwhelmed you. • So you can become prepared via one, easily accomplished, checklist at a time. • We can do it!

  12. 12. The book on the left is how you prepare NOW. The book on the right, is your guide to surviving an emergency or catastrophe given you’ve prepared. The handbook in the center is a discounted, distilled version of both books with the most important basics - click on cover for any. Print Book
  13. 13. I highly recommend getting at least one print copy of the survival manual. During an emergency you can’t count on an eBook. It’s pocket-sized— shown next to my trusty, old Ranger Handbook. I keep one in the glove compartment of each car, in every Grab-n-Go bag and also give them as gifts— the gift of life. Click on image for print version Print Book
