If the grid goes down, or rule of law is lost, urban areas are no place to be with a very large population competing for very limited resources. Best option is to get out of town before things go bad. This class is focused on the why, when, and how of evacuating an urban area. With a strong emphasis on route selection, we will cover the critical skills and considerations for getting out of town. Simmilar to the old bugging out class, Urban Evacuation does fill in some gaps in thinking that I have come to appreciate ten years on down the road.
I always try to be aware of trip lines, warnings that tell me things are about to get bad. When they occur, it is time to take a trip to the countryside. So what are these trip lines? How do you prepare to evacuate? What routes are best and how do you select them? What logistical considerations should you consider? How do you identify family member behaviors when the decision to evacuate is made? What about events where no warning is available like earthquakes?
The final day of class will be a simulated evacuation, with students researching and preparing an evacuation from their own homes to a set location.
TESTIMONIALS FOR Urban Evacuation
I have taken three classes from Kevin Reeve and would highly recommend that you send as many key personnel from your unit as possible through his training
US Navy SEAL
I had already taken SERE training both in the Marines and in the Israeli army, but my training with Kevin far surpassed what I had learned previously.
