Your Preparation Station: The People Part of Prepping

YPS-header-charley hogwood

The People Part of Prepping is such a complex and vital, yet often overlooked, component of this lifestyle.  The word ‘self-sufficient’ often denotes a lone-wolf mentality, yet there is safety in numbers and security in being part of a group – but how to form one, or join one is was often a mystery.  Mystery solved with: “The Survival Group Handbook: How to Plan, Organize and Lead People For a Short or Long Term Survival Situation” written by my guest Charley Hogwood. His book is the foremost guide to planning, organizing and leading people in a survival situation. It has been utilized by small and large groups alike, and has also been used as a team building resource for corporations and civilian organizations.

Charley is Chief Instructor/ Executive Director for P.R.E.P. and is responsible for designing and teaching over 40 different courses in emergency preparedness, disaster readiness, and urban/wilderness survival.

It was a joy to visit with Charley and hear his desire to help you mitigate the potential pitfalls associated with both forming and/or joining a Survival Group.  I would encourage you to pick up a copy of “The Survival Group Handbook“, because it has far more to offer than Charley and I are able to cover in this show.  But we do really cover a lot of territory in this interview from relationships to roles and  OPSEC (operational security) to reality vs. scenarios.

I hope that by getting to know Charley better and hearing his process behind why wrote this book,  you’ll be encouraged that you do not have to go it alone nor do you have to risk your security by forming a group.  Enjoy the show and connect with us for more information.

Remember: Keep Growing & EnJOY the Journey!
