Building Resiliency

Emergency Preparedness Training for Individuals & Families

Join us December 1 and 2

Have you been feeling a growing concern about the state of the world and environment?


We have witnessed one significant disaster after another this past year, and several have hit close to home. According to Climate Change research agencies such as OCCAIR, this could be the new norm.


There is A LOT we can do to be more adaptable and prepared. Why are more people not being proactive? What are YOU doing to set yourself up for success in a Changing World & Climate?


This workshop will help you feel more confident about the future. It combines my 15+ years experience in wilderness and urban survival, homesteading, self-reliance, as well as studying and working in modern-day emergency and disaster management.


Workshop Highlights Include:


  • Develop confidence in your ability to keep your family safe through the planning workbook you complete during the workshop.
  • Tighten bonds in your community as you work together and plan how you can support each other in times of need.
  • Learn fundamental emergency survival skills and how to make and utilize advanced emergency kits, even on a budget.
  • Change concern for the future into a feeling of empowerment through small but high leverage actions!

Workshop Topics Include:


  • Creating family & community communication plans for when phones go down.
  • Cutting through the overwhelm of possibilities by conducting an accurate hazard and risk assessment.
  • Learn about storing, collecting and purifying water if your municipal system stops flowing or is contaminated.
  • Learn best practices for surviving different types of disasters and emergencies.
  • Learn strategies for, and how to, store and cook food during longer-term emergencies.
