Prepping For Zombies To Gain Real-World Survival Skills

Prepping For Zombies To Gain Real-World Survival Skills

For preppers looking for a way to combine fun and survival preparedness training, Trackers Earth, a Portland, Ore.-based organization, offers a Zombie First Responder course that plays on the popularity of zombie films and television shows in recent years to encourage survival preparedness.

Over the course of two days, participants train for everything from wilderness and urban survival, Nerf or nerd weaponry, stealth and evasion and proper zombie “disposal.” The course places heavy emphasis on quick decision making in dangerous situations.

The organization says of the program:

The Trackers Rangers Guild teaches their own special brand of survival skills applicable in both an urban and wilderness setting. They tell you how to get out of town and into the woods as you strive to exodus major population centers.

Plus, they cover The Curriculum of Shadows, akin to a martial art, this unique philosophy uses shadows, silence, stealth and invisibility to help you guide your band of lone survivors through an earth populated by 6 billion creatures ravenous for your squishy brains.

While the course is centered on a fun fantasy scenario, some valuable survival skills that are more practical than zombie disposal are also addressed. Participants learn how to: build a fire with no matches, make and use primitive weaponry, build a wilderness shelter from available materials, bug out methods, foraging skills, campfire cooking and more.

The organization also offers various non-zombie related survival training courses including a one-year “full immersion” survival-training program. More information is available on the Trackers Earth website.
