Class Overview

Emergency waits for no man. “I never thought it would happen to me..” is the number one thing First Responders hear in the field. Being prepared helps reduce fear, anxiety and losses during disasters and emergencies. In some cases, it helps to avoid the dangers completely and allows the opportunity to become part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Water is one of your highest priorities in survival. It took FEMA two weeks to get water to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. The FUEL the FIRES team can give you the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to collect, filter and purify water when it matters most. From primitive to modern means, we’ve got you covered.

In this class, you will learn a lot more than what the CDC, EPA and the WHO has to offer when it comes to emergency water. Our humble and judgement free instructors will take you through the dangers of contamination and how to combat them effectively. Simply boiling your water for one minute is not always the safest means to purify. In some cases, it can even release harmful toxins! Knowledge is key.

Being able to act on that knowledge is even more important. Saturday morning you will receive an overview of the entire process. The instructors will cover kit mentality and demonstrate what works and what doesn’t. They’ll give you the low down on the most popular collection methods, filters on the market and purification methods available.

You’ll also receive a handout with critical data, reliable information and helpful tips and tricks. After lunch, you’ll start practicing what you’ve learned and begin gaining hands-on experience. You’ll build up an appetite for sure and an open taco bar will be provided for dinner!

Sunday is a journey back in time exploring the primitive side of things. Our ancestors did this for thousands of years without all the fancy gear. You can too! You’ll even get to make your own bamboo canteen to take home with you.
