What is your present level of survival knowledge and preparedness?

Insofar as medical knowledge, quite thorough. As I said I've worked as an emergency technician for quite some time. About 5 years now. I am at least very well trained in responding to emergencies of all kinds. From domestic disputes all the way to massive trauma, I've observed a bit on life star as well and have a pretty thorough knowledge of all the state and local protocols for emergencies and emergency relief. As well, the company I work for has the FEMA contract for disaster response and as such a requirement of my employement is to take and stay current in a few incident command and response tactics. (ICS 200, 400 & IS 800, ETC.) I'm trained to the health care level in CPR and can easily help others learn a great deal about rudimentary medicine. As far as wilderness survival, quite a bit of book read; not a lot of real experience. I would like to learn a lot more about surviving harsh environments particularly for this reason.


My name is Ben. I've worked as an EMT for quite some time in the city. My aim is to improve my physical shape and better understand and respect my natural environments; as well to learn to be creative and resourceful in terms of survival.
