    Survival: Beyond the Bug out Bag. Year 4 Opener

    Survival: Beyond the Bug out Bag. Year 4 Opener

    Produced on the Anniversary of the Alameda/ Obenchain fires that struck Ashland, Talent, Phoenix and Medford, with ash falling on the hoods of the cars from  the recent fires, this  episode marks a new direction. This is also  National Preparedness Month, and well worth a look at the linked website.

    I'm going to begin by doing a quick review of that is the same and what is different, with suggestions of new directions to take.  An example? Water. While the common wisdom was  to stock up on bottled water, (and it is STILL a good idea) there is a finite amount of space and weight a person can handle.  Looking at  Hurricanes and fire disasters, supplies may interrupted or unusable. So what are the alternatives in your own area? Can you filter undrinkable water easily and safely?

    The next episodes will focus on these specific  topics in more depth, with links to resources and references, I'll  also be posing question for our to apply to your own situation like the one above.

    IN other news the website has a new look and new simpler class registration. I have also highlighted a few of the  more popular  past Podcasts, and provide a link to all of the past years work.

    Beyond the Bug Out Bag: A Report Card

    Beyond the Bug Out Bag: A Report Card

    Three years ago I began sharing information on Bug out Bags and Preparedness with you, our listeners. It's ironic that it was  September 8th, while preparing a podcast, the Alameda fire began and all of those ideas and plans were tested. 
    Hello everyone I’m Bill Bateman, part of the team here at refuse to be victim personal protection training. This is a very special episode of Survival beyond the Bug out Bag-Preparing for disaster.
    Instead of reviewing products and general information, I want to look at what worked when I had to evacuate and share real-time product information. I live in Talent, one of the cities that suffered significant damage,  and was one of the lucky ones. The flames came with two blocks of my house.
    There were many who were not so lucky  My heart goes out to those who lost it all. Just this morning I passed the all too familiar scene of a person standing in the debris of what was their home and just looking. Some are standing on the sidewalk looking, as if not ready to make those first steps on the property to accept what is in front of them. I know that feeling.  I  stood with my parents as they shifted through the ashes of our family home following the Panorama fire in Nov of 81. I feel your pain.
    A giant thank you to the firefighters and all of the first responders. Also a big thank you to the communities involved who came together so quickly to open evacuation centers- and then support them with donations. Thank you.
    So let's look at what worked, what didn't, and how to reset for the next time.
