The Essentials of Survival introduces you to the Make Ready to Survive instructional series. Forget any preconceived notions or ideas you may have on prepping or survival skills. Instructors Paul Howe, Dave Canterbury, Jim Cobb, Kyle Harth, and N.E. MacDougald walk you through the essentials of preparing for an emergency. They review survival mindset, event based planning, basic survival necessities, the survival budget, water sourcing and purifying, food choices and options, temporary shelters, making a fire, bug out bags and essential gear, prepping, every day carry items, and much more. Everyone should be prepared for natural disasters, the hazards of terrorist acts, power outages, and localized emergencies ranging from short term to long term events. You cannot rely on someone else to help you when an emergency strikes. Now you can be ready.
“…these videos introduce prepping as common sense and reasonable, and they focus on scenarios of a few days to a few months in duration. All of the instructors come across as sane and reliable. These videos would be great to show non-preppers, as they demonstrate how to deal with situations most of us could easily encounter in a normal lifetime. I found very useful nuggets of information in every one of them, despite being a somewhat jaded student of the subject since the late 1970’s.” –Scot Frank Erie, SurvivalBlog Field Gear Editor
