Emergency Backpack Preparedness Training
Time: Saturday, July 7th at 5 PM
Are you prepared to evacuate your home at a moment’s notice? Due to the wild fires in Colorado, thousands of people have been forced to do just that. Although wild fires are not much of a concern in our area, one house fire could easily spread across a city block or neighborhood. Tornados, power outages, toxic chemical spills, or just being stranded in the middle of nowhere are all situations where having, AND KNOWING HOW TO USE, an Emergency Backpack could be a matter of life or death.
Preppers Anonymous will be holding a training class on stocking and using an Emergency Backpack. We will make sure we have all we need in an emergency backpack. A pack that is ready at a moment’s notice.
In this training we will practice building a shelter, starting a fire, purifying water, cooking a meal, and making sure you have all the supplies you would need in case of a real emergency, using only what is in your backpack.* As a bonus we will be taught about some local wild edibles and even have a chance to taste some that have been cooked.
A small hike thru a wooded area** will test and see how our backpacks ‘ride’ our bodies. It will be a gauge for each of us to see how far we think we can make it walking with all we’ve packed in our bags…
