Winter Survival

10-18-16-b2x-pckccailydrThis week on the 7 P’s of Survival Radio Show we will be talking all things winter survival and preparedness. While we are all most likely a few weeks away from out first major winter storm now is the time to stock up on essential emergency supplies before prices go through the roof or supplies are scarce or simply not available. Throughout the show we will talk about various aspects of winter preparedness from the proper kit for your car, a kit for your house, tips and tricks for staying warm when camping, long-term power loss considerations, a winter storm kit, alternative heating methods for a home and much more.

10-18-16-111914_shep_snow_640I wrote about this same topic two years ago during a major winter storm that hit the east coast and earlier this year spent the better part of four days shoveling show at work just to keep the garage doors clear in case of an Ambulance call when our area was hit with 3′ of show in a 12 hour period. I have been fortunate as of late to not have many issues with power loss at my home; however, growing up in rural West Virginia we seemed to lose power every time a thunder storm rolled through and anytime we had more than six inches of snow so I have spent several weeks in the winter without phone/internet/power/etc. As an emergency responder when the storms start that is when most of the work begins for us and therefore I’m usually out on the roads when they are at their worst. Due to always being out in treacherous I have built an extremely functional winter preparedness kit to get me out of most scenarios that could be thrown my way.

The last portion of the show will be dedicated to winter camping and way to enjoy your outdoor pursuits even more as we reach colder temperatures. People are always asking if I’m part polar bear as I love winter camping and prefer to be in the cold 24/7 if at all possible, so to say winter camping is my element is an understatement. I have slept in temperatures as low as -22 (doesn’t get much lower than that in West Virginia) and will tell you a few secrets about how to keep toasty throughout the night and not wake up freezing at 4am.

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!

Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.

Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.

One thought on “The 7 P’s Of Survival”

  1. Saw the first show and was about as impressed as I was with the last seasons show.
    “Desomnd” lasted less than a day !!!!!,LESS THAN A DAY.
    Makes me ponder how in the hell they vetted any of these people.
    I am positive there are at least 4 or 5 actual survivors in the group.
    BUT as to the rest,WHY bother wasting time and energy to put them there in the first place ?.
