Strategic Preparedness – Episode 7

The Deadly Twin Sisters of Misery: Disease & Death

In reality everything we do in trying to live providently will always come back to developing “community”. Episode 7 starts where we left off last week, and if you missed last weeks program, for best effect we recommend that you listen to Episode 6 before number 7.

Episode 7 finishes a most important program, The Deadly Twin Sisters of Misery: Disease and Death — Following a disasters there are two overlapping and sinister challenges that will cause more trouble than anything else.

When “things” happen, there are areas we can work through on our own (food, shelter, clothing, stored water, first aid, etc.). However, there are a few things that are very public in nature, and absolutely require unified participation from those around us. At the top of this list is the full spectrum of proper SANITATION practices.

It is important to recognize that if you are doing everything right, but others around you are not, your ability to stay well is drastically diminished, and can be almost totally negated.

Two major issues go hand in hand with most disasters of significant magnitude and duration — failed sanitation, and limited access to sanitary (potable) water. This deadly combo will kill people far more quickly than starvation or most other issues. Be prepared to overcome them, before they overcome you and your household.

We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion.

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.”
