There is a lot of suffering that can befall the average American. Life is no easy thing. Its a succession of hurtles that we all must jump. We get over some and we crash through others.
Prepping is not the same for everyone. Some of us have less time, some less money and others have things like debilitating illness. Could you imagine prepping with a medical condition? This can be a serious struggle and deserves some thought.
On top of all this we need to consider gaining important skills. First aid might be one of the most important skill sets to learn. You will find that first aid training is often a one and done affair. That is because most of us don’t see illness and trauma on a daily basis. That’s a good thing!
However, we only really get good at the things we do regularly. So if you are looking to take first aid serious you need some serious first aid guidance.
Some people have serious passion and you might be able to link up with a passionate leader in your area who will teach you first aid on a regular basis. It might be someone worth paying for regular 1 on 1 training. Either way, seek out a local resource.
Every Monday on the Prepper Broadcasting Network there is a medical prepping podcast posted. This is a combination of great information and powerful hosts all packaged and presented each Medical Monday. This weekly bit of information is a big hit and keeps your mind on first aid.
Join a Squad
Most areas have a rescue squad. Where the biggest gains can be made are in working in the rescue squad on a regular basis. Unfortunately, hands on experience is the best. Though, having that at the expense of others condition can be a little rough on you. Still, you can wind up saving people and that is powerful, too!
