If you’re just stockpiling food and water sadly this is not going to be enough in a survival situation. This clever technology could also help the large number of Latinos who serve in the military who may know Spanish, but not Arabic. According to the National Council of La Raza, "Latinos have served with distinction in the U.S. Alelo (a Hawaiian reference to the word, tongue" or "tip of a paddle") is made up of about 40 employees, including: linguists, anthropologists, game designers, videographers, researchers and 3-D animators. Based in Los Angeles, Calif., a city considered to be "one of the most diverse cities on the planet," the company benefits from its mult-cultural dynamic.
Now before deploying to Afghanistan, "soldiers can don headsets and practice their Pashto while conversing with 3-D virtual natives, who respond instantly and become increasingly hostile to foreigners at higher difficulty levels. In the past, educating "soldiers in languages of strategic importance," the military relied heavily on the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center in Monterey, Calif. Since its inception in 2003, Alelo has expanded its focus beyond Iraq and Afghanistan to teach languages such as sub-Saharan French and Indonesian, each of which has a course that's the equivalent of three college semesters. In addition, Alelo's eight Virtual Cultural Awareness Trainers (VCATs), which cover regions such as the Horn of Africa and Central America, take about four hours and include only basic phrases in the native language, focusing instead on politics, religion and customs, including advice about how to avoid insulting your Afghani hosts (always accept tea when it's offered and never show the soles of your shoes), LA Weekly reports. A Department of Health and Human Services study found 22,798 unaccompanied children were housed with parents, aunts, uncles, or other close relatives between September 2015 and February 2016, nearly equaling the total of the previous 12-month period. The Copa Libertadores comes to an end on Wednesday when Atletico Nacional hosts Independiente del Valle in the second leg of the tournament's grand finale. You spend all your time, money and effort working out a plan, a plan where you and your loved ones will have a safe haven, a retreat stocked with survival food, water, medical supplies, fuel, weapons and ammunition for self-defense and foraging and anything else you could ever need to ensure the survival of you and yours after the poop hits the fan. After all one of my constant ramblings in the pages of this blog, is to never ever become a refugee. Who knows you could very well lose your retreat and supplies to government thugs, remember Waco Texas and Ruby Ridge Idaho? Sure you can put up a fight, you might even take some of the mongrels with you, but in the end they will kill you and take what you have. And not only the federal government backed jackbooted thugs, but local law enforcement also. What about that candle you left burning as you fell off to sleep while reading that old back issue of penthouse magazine. And what about the raiding parties that are sure to form after a long-term collapse for the sole purpose of robbing, raping and killing?
And don’t forget the importance of caching life saving supplies around your area, this way you have something to fall back on. The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook: Over 170 Pages of Food Storage Tips, and Recipes From Preppers All Over America! Unless you are taking an engineering course for building things from scrap I doubt a college course would have what you need for SHTF.
Thank you, I was beginning to think that I was hopelessly stupid or the only one that had figured it out.
Roll the sheet(s) up with each sleeping bag, wrap up in it on the colder nights as the sheet also serves as an extra layer of insulation against the cold. The sheets are cheap, cheap, cheap at places like wally world, add virtually no extra weight, and offer different levels of comfort in different seasons. Sign your kids up for programs like the Junior Maine Guide and then take some classes yourself. I was even appalled a few summers back when one of my much loved, then teenaged, nephews received his Red Cross, Life Guard Certification and hadn’t even been introduced to half of what I once was (at the same age) concerning water rescue. I’m also thinking it is very possible that having to go to ground may be very necessary. A possible strategy by a government would be to let the people fight amongst themselves, depeleting supplies, THEN showing up after the population have run out of supplies.
Since exposure will kill you quicker than most anything else firemaking is probably the best place to start.
I had an old cleaver kicking around in a kitchen drawer so I dragged it out and followed the article. Agree with steve below – learn the common wild plants (both medicinal and food) in your area that grow in seasons and learn how to use them.
Purchased a bow and arrow set from xpectre and have been enjoying reacquainting myself with archery. To tell you the truth while I have some survival and wilderness skills I don’t agree with the thought of bugging out to the wilderness. Then why are there so many people here at THIS Survival Site Seeking and Sharing KNOWLEDGE? Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are people who have not crossed an international border but have moved to a different region than the one they call home within their own country.
What if suddenly YOU, for whatever reason became a Refugee, or an Internally Displaced Person?
It doesn’t take a lifetime to learn survival skills, but if those skills are lost and not referenced, it takes a lifetime to find it out through experimentation.
Not sure how you got you should quit everything from my post but that’s not at all what I meant.
I thought I’d have a little fun today and walk you through what to do in some scenarios to test your basic survival medicine skills. To get the most out of this post, wait for a minute after reading each scenario and think what you’d do in such a situation.
The main character, Erika, starts out trapped in Sacramento, CA, and must make her way back to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. JH: The first thing to do with any wound is stop any bad bleeding with direct pressure if possible or a tourniquet if not. Wrap a cloth directly and tightly over her wound, but not so tight that the circulation is cut off.
Here’s my interactive e-book on wounds, which would be mighty handy to have in such a situation. While Erika is reenergizing at another camp in the small town of Cool, the earthquakes strike again. In Day After Disaster, horses become very important to navigate the broken landscape with any type of speed. BONUS: Right now, you'll also receive "The Survival Doctor's Ultimate Emergency Medical Supplies" report—FREE! So on the wounds we do see, it’s strictly gravity (via cysto tubing) or bulb syringe lavage. I am nowhere near the expert that Doc is, but feel free to ask any questions, I will help where I can…Will be buying book, and would love to interact with you online! Grammyprepper I would really enjoy staying connected online as I am always seeking information! I’ve been saving this at my inbox for a time I could give it absolute full attention. I read your exchange here with Trish and have made a note at the back of the book re the discussion on pressure washing and have noted there is a school of thought the use of it might push debris, etc, deeper into the wound. If you have as one of your concerns a total collapse in society regardless of the reason, there are people out there who will tell you that you need to have knowledge or skills you can sell. That is a good question if you ask me because I have seen a lot of advice from people who on the surface seem to have a great idea or 20. From the perspective of a total economic collapse, war, biological outbreak, EMP attack we will be looking at such a seismic shift in our lives that even the very concept of commerce could be set back years maybe decades.
I think the perspective of most of these lists on Survival blogs is from the standpoint of what can you do to earn money if we go through an economic collapse. The problem of an economy that is almost completely based on Services is that if people don’t have money for these services, you could be out of a job. Water is more important in terms of living than food is, but growing food is harder for most people than finding water. One of my long term goals is to be completely self-sufficient from the electrical power grid. A garden is a great way to stay alive and some of my vegetarian friends would say that’s all you need.
Being able to know what is going on in your city, state, region or even country is important.
The jack of all trades lumps a lot of other skills together because I think you will be using these more for yourselves than selling this service to other people.
This I put lower on the list because I do agree it is a valid way to survive, but of all the items above, I would want to rely on this least. No, you won’t have a job standing in front of a green screen holding a remote control showing the weather fronts moving across the plains, but knowing how to forecast the weather is definitely a skill that could save your life in a few ways.
Our book, The One Year Urban Survival Plan, tells you exactly how to prepare for a major disaster in the city or suburbs.
The One Year Urban Survival Plan, tells you exactly how to prepare for a disaster in the city. Maneewan Mutthong, 20, from Bangkok, was pronounced dead at Vachira Phuket Hospital yesterday morning, Witanya Chuayuan, Deputy Director of Phuket Life Guard Service told The Phuket News today.

Lifeguards attempted to revive Ms Manee before she was rushed still unconscious to the new Accident and Emergency Department of the yet-to-be-built Chalong Hospital (see here), then transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town, where better treatment could be provided. Once a soldier has practiced a few key phrases, the game will drop him into a realistic rural or urban landscape, where a burly civilian might gruffly ask what he wants," LA Weekly adds.
Creekmore Most preppers look at wilderness survival skills as just a useless waste of time.
And I stand by my advice, do everything in your power not to become a hopeless starving refugee. I think that this will be the number one threat to our survival, even more so than starving neighbors. If they know that you have a stockpile of food and gear, after a disaster they will come and take it! I know you read it for the information packed articles but that didn’t stop that darned house cat from jumping on the table and knocking it over while you slept, starting a fire which turned your retreat into a pile of ash. We never know what will happen or when it will occur, so we as preppers need to plan the best we can for Murphy’s Law. There is survival medicine courses and wilderness medicine courses but they are kinda fringe.
Living in the wild is not tough at all if you will just learn one thing at the time ,and keep using it and duplicating it until it is second nature to you. But this year we decided to take it further and headed off on foot into the forest and spent a week surviving on what we could carry. Practice in a charcoal grill in the backyard, a hibachi on an apartment terrace, a grill in a park. It works so well, I even redid the handle wrap on my old, old , old carpenters hatchet with this method. James Daniel Stolpa, also lost in a blizzard, in Nevada, left his wife and child in a cave and hiked 40 miles in 2 days to reach civilization – he was able to successfully lead rescuers back to his family and all survived. Any of you that have read some of my posts know that I basically live in a wilderness area. I have no real excuse except that I was in a bad mood and having to scroll through all your quotes to find comments pi$$ed me off. I had done trial and error to learn what was eatable and palatable in some cases, and others taught me some basic skills. In fact, it is as difficult to appropriate the thoughts of others as it is to invent”.
Sacramento has been inundated with toxic water, making it a treacherous journey to dry land. Anytime you’re in the wild and the temperatures dip into the 40s or below, hypothermia ia a risk.
If a gunshot wound were to damage an artery, the bleeding could be severe enough to be life threatening. If I thought the bullet had broken a bone, the leg would need to be splinted, and she must not bear weight, at least without crutches or a cane. If clean water is scarce, use whatever liquid you have (using common sense—no harsh or toxic chemicals, bleach, etc.). In the wild, with no chance for expert care and minimal water and shelter, the chances of surviving a deep burn covering more than 20 percent of the body is slim.
These animals have lived their lives as little more than pets roaming a pasture and taking an occasional joy ride with their owners. James Hubbard is the best-selling author of five books, including his latest, The Survival Doctor's Complete Handbook. Re: the scenario about the gunshot wound and the recommendation that a pressure lavage is best. The only trauma we receive here is combat trauma (we do not receive any ambulances at all except for the buses that bring the wounded from Ramstein air base as soon as they land). I was thinking that would be the solution but I still have a lot to learn in this department so I’d rather have confirmation. The usual suspects are what might be considered our pioneering skills and I won’t discount those completely, but I will give you my thoughts and welcome all of the feedback you have in the comments below. From the standpoint of a total societal collapse, I am thinking about not what I can make a living from, but what skills are going to keep me living? After your garden is growing, start a project of collecting rain in rain barrels or digging a well.
As we saw in just the last Doomsday Preppers episode, there are opportunistic scavengers out there who have no remorse when it comes to separating you from your supplies.
The hope is that injuries are minor, but they could require additional first aid and possibly antibiotics to treat infection.
I do appreciate the irony in that statement seeing as how I run a blog, but the power we need to live off of in our daily routines could come primarily from the sun.
A lot of people have shortwave capable radios that can receive broadcasts from stations overseas, but if you want the best of all prepper communication options, you need to get into Ham radio.
Knowing the local varieties of plants, fruits, leaves, roots and nuts are edible can certainly augment your diet and keep you from starving. For instance, the recent tornadoes that struck Illinois and Indiana would have been more deadly if people hadn’t been warned by the news. Sure, they might get you through a temporary disaster like an earthquake or hurricane, but what if someone gets hurt?
After all you don’t plan on becoming a refugee any time soon, so why take the time necessary to learn a new skill that you may never need? But then again you could very well be forced to head for the hills to save your life and that of your family. Shelter building and fire making, trapping and tracking, wild plants and water procurement, primitive weapons construction and so on.
The most basic health courses will assume that civilization exists and you are just stabilizing patients till civilization takes care of them. So I was learning outdoor skills long before I became a prepper , so for me I have had to learn prep . Whether it’s an eight dollar Old Hickory butcher knife or a five hundred dollar custom job know how to sharpen it properly. I still prefer my Condor Kephart but the modified cleaver is a good second, especially where a heaver blade is needed. Therefore it is important to teach others about survival whether they stay home or forced to run to the woods to survive. Toxic water aside, once Erika reaches dry land and is journeying through the mountain territory.
Exception: If a large artery is has been damaged, there may be no pulse no matter how loose the dressing. Because of the extra blood pressure in the leg with standing or walking, the bleeding is more likely to break through any pressure she puts on it.
The inhabitants scramble to recover what little supplies they have left and barely any medical supplies are salvaged. If there were burns around the face or neck, it would be especially important to cool these areas to keep down swelling. There is a huge need to retrain many of the animals to pull carts and plows, and how to fight in battles. If it was a slash from a claw and I could be pretty certain I could clean it well, I’d be more prone to close it, especially if oral antibiotics were available, but the risk of infection would still be pretty high. His expertise and down-to-earth style have made him one of the foremost survival medicine experts in the country. In fact, anytime you have injured an extremity for any reason, and you think a bone or joint has been injured, I’d treat it like a fracture until it has been ruled out. I’ve been a peri-operative RN at Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany for nearly a decade. Who knows what breakthrough procedure or device is going to make someone rich on the back of so much suffering and death. If we have an economic collapse that renders fuel out of reach of the hands of most people, you won’t be able to drive to the next town to get some work done. If we have another stock market crash and hundreds or thousands of companies close because they can no longer purchase the raw materials they need to create products, or the products they do create aren’t sold anymore; what will you do for a living?
These two industries exist primarily because people make enough money that their time is worth more to them than the cost of hiring someone else to do these two jobs.
Having a garden on land that you are living on is the surest way you can take the responsibility for feeding your family into your own hands.
Just having a 50 gallon barrel in your basement isn’t going to be enough in a true collapse scenario. Preppers usually go for chickens, rabbits, sheep and pigs in terms of livestock because they are all relatively easy to raise and produce good meat. The basic equipment to start with Ham is relatively cheap but is possibly your best bet in anything other than an EMP scenario of staying in contact with others and relaying information to your group. I don’t know that I can envision anyone starting their own plumbing company for a while after the grid goes down but it is possible. I know that there are several books out there that go into this subject to a high level, but I personally would rather pick something out of my garden that I know what it is than rely on a picture or description of something that may kill me.

Here is an article on a list of skills that will be useful, some of these you might be able to learn quickly but others will take some time.
If people would just take your advise Chuck and build on what you have suggested then the world couldn’t hold us preppers. We did take dried food with us but even so, I know its not everything and we need to continue this but it is amazing how good it makes you feel knowing you can do it.
In 2006, James Kim and his family left Portland Oregon after to drive back home to San Francisco. If it came down to a matter of raiders or government trying to take what I have I would rather go down fighting than trying to survive in the woods. By statistics only 3 percent of the population has any concept of prepping so that means 97% would die. I stated the opinion that even though I have a lot of those skills I realize I would die a hard death trying to do it long term and I believe that most of the population would also.
If a bone is broken near the wound, this becomes an open fracture and the risk of infection is especially great. How would you attempt to triage this event and what could be done for these burn victims without access to traditional medical supplies? Two young girls in the story are trying to trail break a fluttery horse when a famished mountain lion attacks. I trained as an emergency medical technician but never put it to use and I have also educated myself on basic survival medical techniques (which is why I love Dr. If there are no jobs as a customer service representative or a social media consultant; what will you do to make money? You won’t be able to advertise in the Yellow pages anymore and your Etsy store might not be online anymore. When you start seeing companies close and people are out of work, the two industries like lawn services and maids will disappear.
Once you have water, you will need to treat it unless it comes from a clean source underground. Good training from someone who has actually lived through a war can be found at the SHTF School. A couple of 100W photovoltaic panels, an inverter and several batteries or even a simple solar system could give you an advantage in a survival situation.
Hunting is another option and gives you a great survival skill set you can use in other situations.
Of course, you can build Faraday cages to shield your electronics like this for extra protection. What I can see though is a pipe busting in your house and you not having any money to call a plumber.
You will need to know how to forecast weather the old fashioned way to protect your crops and animals if it is going to snow or freeze.
They won’t do it thought because it is cheap, effecient, quick learning, loads of fun, and hands on. I just do as the article suggests and use a kitchen edge guard since this goes in my tool pack I carry around the home place when I’m working outside. I seriously doubt that all of the other 3 % have the skills or wherewithal to survive either but lets say 1 in three are young enough and healthy enough and have the skills to do it. All I tried to do was put a voice of reason into people that think they are going to bug out to the wilderness and flourish because they learned to build a stick shelter and start a fire. How would you treat and heal this wound in a survival situation and how long would that healing process take? Hubbard shares information about how to deal with medical problems when getting expert care is impossible.
As for this case, the less movement and the more she can keep it elevated at heart level the better. Over time we were discovering that we were doing more harm than good and, about 18 months ago, the word came down and the policy was changed and we no longer use pulse lavage on any open injury (we do still use as necessary in the course of surgeries where incisions are made intraoperatively).
It is one thing to add additional crops, but it is another thing entirely to face an empty patch of lawn with a bucket of seeds in December. The other side of this could be caring for your instruments that will assist you in securing your home. Other skills fall into this like making soap, sewing, leather-working or knitting and cooking. Check out the article below and let us know what other skills you think might be important to know. If they had to spend megabucks or travel a 100 miles to listen to a boring lecture then they would jump right on it though.
Has anyone ever picked up a book in college or school and attempted to learn it all in one day. While I am sure a FEW people cold do it 99.99999 percent would starve,die of dehydration,animals,exposure falling,bleeding infection ect. I hunt,fish,hike and camp up here in the mountains on a regular basis and have for years so I know what I am doing and have the skills and equipment and I still tell you that doing it for more than a few days is HARD. In a survival situation how would you treat this wound and ensure it stayed free of infection? His evidence-based tips are a combination of modern medicine, makeshift treatments and Grandma’s home remedies. Besides learning that we were unwittingly embedding debris deep into muscle tissue, pressure lavage has been named as a possible contributing factor for the development of a pretty high percentage of combat veterans with traumatic limb injuries developing heterotopic ossification, often leading to amputation of an initially saved limb or necessitating an amputation revision of a residual limb down the line.
In the little bit of research I have done, everything has always indicated the use of pressure washing so I am very interested in learning that this may do more harm than good.
I am talking about skills for a certain limited set of trades and more importantly the skills we have all long forgotten to a major degree. Maybe your town will have a bulletin board where you can post an ad you make that highlights your services to the community. Knowing how to save seeds is also important because if the collapse is bad enough, the local Wal-mart might not be open anymore. Having a supply of fish antibiotics can be the one thing that keeps you alive when an otherwise minor cut could kill others in a post collapse world. Aquaponics is another method that not only gives you a great source of fish, but can also fertilize the garden as well.
But I do have a 10 X 10 pop-up dinning fly and with snap-on walls I can turn it into a large tent and vent a stove pipe out one side.
If you want to learn survival skills that’s fine but I really think planing on using them to live in the wild is just lieing to yourself.
Studies are ongoing, of course, but that jumped out at me when I read the piece and just wanted to pass the info along. If we are in a true economic collapse, the only people who can be logically expected to survive are people who possess goods or services someone is willing to buy or barter for or those who have survival skills. In this post I want to talk about my ideas for the best, most pertinent survival skills you need to consider if you are prepping your family for any event where we as a country or even our world can’t dig us out of with a tractor. If your expensive rifle with all of the sexy hardware on it breaks a firing pin, it becomes a club. This is one of those skills that will take a little know how and preparation prior to the grid going down unless you live near a big PVC factory and a tilapia farm.
And when we start buying all these books and gadgets that only lead to buying more books and gadgets then we are defeated and depleted without even getting out of the starting gate. If you ask anyone who has ever took what they can carry in a backpack and disappeared in the bush for a couple of weeks they can tell you the same thing I am.
When the real end of the world as we know it arrives, what will you need to give you the best chance of making it through? You can’t hang your shingle out on the front porch and expect a lot of drive through traffic so how will the word get out so that people come to your “store” to conduct business? Bio Prepper made a thought-provoking list of all the most important skills people will need after TEOTWAWKI.
Try living on roots and berry’s,try shooting and gutting a deer then carrying it 2 miles through the brush to camp and butchering it then trying to smoke or cure it somehow all the while trying to find firewood and keep a fire going and haul and boil water and all the other camp chores. And if you really want to have fun through in a couple of feet of snow and 20 degree temp while you are doing it. Get a tent a few necessities and go into your backyard with your money still in your purse.
If you find you need it, then buy it, but don’t go looking into books about prepping. Do what works for you or you’ll be broke, discouraged, and ticked, before you get out the back door.
