Monday!!! What did you do to prep this week?

What did you do to prep this week? A weekly post about the various things I do to help myself and my family/friends become better prepared

For me, it was small things. I ordered some 10ft power cords for my mobile devices as well as an Anker 24 volt AC adaptor.

I signed up for Paramedic class finally. It’s about a year long and I begin in August. This will include over 500 hours of clinical time working in an ED as well as with an ambulance service. Lots of work to be thrown on top of my 42 hours a week job. It’s been 8 years since I signed up for EMT. I’m hoping that my experience in the field, as well as my attentiveness to detail, will help me pass easily.

My copy of Bushcraft First Aid finally showed up. It had been on pre-order. It is the 4th book in Dave Canterbury’s excellent bushcraft how to books. First Aid covers everything from plant life to neurological damage while in the bush. Has a good chapter on splitting as well. I’ll be delving deep into this one as a reminder of my Wilderness EMT course I took several years ago.

That’s about it for me. Paid down a bit more of the minuscule debt I have. How about you?

  • Good for you young man. Congrats on recognizing that having advanced medical training and experience may well be the single most sought after skill during real life SHTF. Not only will that knowledge and those skills be eminently important within your immediate survival network, that training could be every bit as valuable a barter item as will be supplies, food, water, ammo, etc.

    • Thanks Terry! It’s definitely taken a weight off my shoulders, but also added some. Gonna be hard work, but I’ll make it. I’m that stuborn 😉

      There’s also a degree bridge program I’m looking into after finishing. If I manage to obtain that, then I’ll be the second person in my family to have a degree. Puts me inline for supervisory and advanced training positions.
