Urban Disaster Proof: SURVIVING


Learn the 16 Methods for Surviving REGIONAL OR GLOBAL DISASTERS then how to Self-sustain afterward the disaster.
Every few months a regional disaster takes place somewhere in the world.

Now, regional disasters are happening right outside your window.

We have been very lucky to escape a GLOBAL SCALE disaster so far.

“SANDY” was only a regional disaster, how well did the local government and people deal with a lost of REGIONAL resources and infrastructure?
How did you, family and friends do during the last regional disaster? Are you ready to both SURVIVE and SELF-SUSTAIN for the NEXT regional or global disaster event?

This urban disaster sustainability workshop is

TOTALLY DIFFERENT from Wilderness survival. We

will avoid wasting your time with fantasies of running

around in the woods eating nasty things as food.

As you have observed in a world made of

glass, steel and concrete during a REAL

WORLD DISASTER many survival ideas

are useless because they are based on

wilderness or military survival concepts.

You need to understand in detail what to do in

your urban world during an urban disaster.

The “Urban Disaster Proof” workshop is

based on the reality of what will work in the

real world.

We will explore the 16 components of

“The Urban Sustainability Ring,” a model

of what is NEEDED to live after and

recover from an Urban Disaster of any


Inside of “The Urban Sustainability Ring” you are safe and move towards the pathway of rebuilding a complete life.
Without “The Urban Sustainability Ring” being fully developed as part of your current lifestyle:
1. You don’t know what is missing from your disaster planning
2. You can move along a continuum from suffering to injury then slow death.
3. You won’t have the needed tools, materials and supplies pre-disaster event. Human can only forecast hurricanes because of weather satellite technology and radar. Any of the other 32 types of disaster events have little to no warning. 

POWERING- one of the 16 Urban Sustainability Components that will be explored in great detail during the workshop is POWERING. The ability to make electrical energy and harvest it over long periods of times without the power grid defines POWERING. Everyone in the New York Tri-state area should have learned that depending on the power grid during an urban disaster could be both dangerous and highly uncomfortable.
Owning a generator is one part of a much larger POWERING METHOD. If you live in an apartment operating a generator will lead to death! The POWERING SECTION will explore what will work in both an apartment and house structure.
As I have tried in vain to help hardcore preppers and others understand, living without power in a city is both dangerous and difficult. “Sandy” has now provided the experience of life without power.

There are 15 other Components of the “Urban Sustainability

Ring” beyond POWERING that we will cover during the

“Prepping In The City” workshop.

Participates will work on and develop their personal urban survival and sustainability MAP during the workshop.

    Ahhh..the old "its not you, but me" way of getting rid of someone...that I would be better with someone else...please be better then a cheesy dating tactic....I would rather you had the guts to just blacklist and ban me from the membership. I do appreciate though the clarification that this is "your group" and that members are here to learn just from you, that you require a certain level of survival skills to be a member, and that we are all here to simply be students learning from one master. And we have to pay for it. No hard feelings, and I will leave on my own. Good luck to you and the rest of the membership and when disaster strikes, you are still welcome to share my food and water.

    A ton of great information from a very knowledgable expert on the subject.

    The information was good but I would have liked more.

    Very informative & good introduction to survival prep. I'm looking forward to future meetups and/or telephone seminars.

    What a great workshop! I learned quite a bit even though I've been putting a lot of time into thinking about and researching different methods and products for disaster preparedness. I really hadn't thought about getting myself out of a subway so that part of the discussion was extremely helpful. All in all, a really solid show. :)
