It had been discussed previously about holding a training seminar in the area that focused on SHTF scenarios, survival instruction, and first aid. As of now the ball is in motion and curriculum is being set. The location will be a 200+ acre spread the is currently a shooting facility under development in southeastern/central Ohio. Anyone that would be interested in helping to orchestrate this feel free to contact me. I have limited experience in managing something of this magnitude....The date is to be set at a later time but we would like to execute it late summer of 2011.

For the first aid medical side i would suggest contacting the EMS department at Hocking College in Nelsonville. Hocking College has a full EMS education department with a paramedic program and many of the instructors probably know a few things about wilderness first aid.

Absolutely. I was a certified Advanced Combat Lifesaver but I'm expired so I know enough to create my curriculum but I'm going to contact the local paramedics to teach the course. Thanks for the input!

Im a paramedic and i think it would be a blast to help out, but i could not lead any instruction because im not cert'd to teach anything.

There is guy i work with thats full on wilderness survival, he also a paramedic, and i believe he is qualified to teach several subjects. He comes off kinda wierd because hes all into military stuff but never served, its more that hes proud of his son who a sniper in the army.

I could use a skilled survival guy. Someone that could teach a few classes with fluency would be a wonderful asset. As for helping out, it will be held in the vicinity of Zanesville. Is that too far for you to travel?

Will do. I am working on the skeleton plan as we speak. Once I get a strong outline I will get with you to see what we can work out. You would obviously be a huge asset to us.! Thanks

It is going to be multi day and the class sizes are to be determined bc of the multitude of stations that will be on a rotating docket. There will be a set amount of time that each class will use and upon the end of the time block students rotate and the instructors start over...like I said it is still under construction.

I'm sure we can use all the safety officers we can get! Equipment will come in handy, as well. The more we save the cheaper we can deliver the event. What do you have available?

Mike, In addition to firearms, been thinking that water gathering, purifying and storage, food gathering and storage, shelter building, gathering supplies, basic rope skills, command, and communications may be stations worth considering. just throwing some ideas on the table. ive been realy brainstorming about what id do in the situation. i already keep basic gear in my truck and have enough stuff at home to support me for about 72 hours while i establish more preminant solutions

I'm working on setting up a water station that will cover gathering, purification, required intake, etc. As well as, shelter building and other traditional survival skills. As for communications, we are working on a station that covers signaling, morse code, etc. Is there any other signaling skills we can pass on? The rope class I like. Incorporate knot tying, river crossing, basic rappel...
