Emergency Readiness and Family Defense Through the Eyes of a Professional Peace Officer

Instructor: Jim Phillips (view profile)
Guest: Matthew Stein

We’ll discuss the realities of First Responder’s abilities to deal with major and multiple disasters, and what are the individual’s responsibilities in dealing with disasters.

Chief Phillips brings his perspective on the misperceptions that many people have from the multiple classes he’s given to private and organizational groups on topics of individual rights, personal safety, defense and emergency readiness.  It is important to understand your true rights and responsibilities and how to not make things worse during an already tough situation.

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.”
