Companies, municipalities, first responders and individuals are obviously concerned about the possibility of employees, families and customers "sheltering in place" until the threat has lifted. When that happens, many will be shocked to find that stockpiles of food, water and flimsy "space blankets" won't always be enough to keep people alive. Instead, an understanding of PMA (Positive Mental Attitude - will to live and an engaged mind) and maintaining 98.6 offers the best chance for survival, regardless of the situation or how long it lasts.

Attendees will get the opportunity to participate in hands-on training to better prepare them to cope with disasters. The workshop demonstrate and stresses how to keep survivors positive, engaged and protected, all while accomplishing the tasks that will help keep people alive until rescue arrives. Attendees are guaranteed to improve their personal skills in several areas - providing emergency shelter, knots, using tarps for shelter, fire building, signalling and building useful emergency kits. 

Hands-on activities include - knots, shelters, fires, signaling, etc.

BTW - Participated in SOS's awesome 2-day annual Sidewalk Sale on June 2 & 3, 2017. Lots of fun and great bargains for attendees and on-line shoppers. I demonstrated how to build a fire with a spark and cotton ball saturated with Vaseline. And answered survival questions. Lots of fun.
