Strategic Preparedness – Episode 4

We’re in this Together

When something happens, something really big, we’ll be where we are and doing what we are doing — then suddenly everything changes.

Depending on the magnitude of the event, the recovery may be rapid or it might drag on for a very long time.

In such a time as this we are all in the same fix: trying to figure it out, and probably doing things that we’ve never done before. One of the biggest challenges you’ll encounter will be working with the people around you, particularly if you don’t have an established relationship with them.

Ultimately in order to recover from a major event it will take a “community” working together. It is far better to develop your working relationships as a part of your community before you are thrown into a world of chaos. Strangers and chaos make for a very volatile situation.

In this episode, and several to follow, we’ll be discussing the necessity and process of developing your community in advance — it works out much better that way.

Instructor: Jim Phillips
Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”
