Introduction to Survival
Making in through the Short-Term Survival Situation
Despite the content of popular “survival” television shows today, the typical modern-day survival situation lasts just 72 hours before you’re found alive or…well, not. This short-term survival situation is characterized by a few leading killers and survival priorities that some basic knowledge, strategies, and gear can drastically improve your chances of surviving.
This course looks at the short-term survival situation by examining survival priorities, getting found and what to have in a personalized survival kit.
