Zombie Survival Basics Portland, Oregon
Join Trackers Earth for our world renowned program that prepares you for the front lines of the coming zombie apocalypse. It is the ultimate guide to survival from the zombie hordes.
In this intensive program (because that’s all we have left since the experimental marmoset escaped) you train everything from wilderness and urban survival, boffer weaponry, stealth and evasion, “stuff MacGyver would do” and proper zombie “disposal”. Emphasis is placed on thinking on your feet, increasing your bad ass factor and both short and long-term decision-making during any apocalyptic event.
Zombie Ranger: Protect Your Clan
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.
Special skills include: fire with no matches, torches, weaponry, zombie and stealth scenarios (hunt zombies with bows and foam arrows), wilderness shelter, proper cutting with samurai swords, hatchet throwing, transport methods for getting out of Dodge, avoiding infection from the Zombie plague and much more.

A new public safety mobile application may soon help emergency response coordinators stay up-to-date on their volunteer teams and improve coordination with other public safety groups.
Called CERTify, the app enables Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) coordinators to send messages and assignments to team members during an emergency situation. It also enables decision-makers to keep a closer eye on volunteers’ safety and rescue credentials, to ensure that their skills and certifications are current.
CERT training consists of instruction in first-aid, search-and-rescue, basic firefighting, and other basic emergency skills for citizens. The training curriculum takes about 30 hours to complete, and course materials are provided by the federal government. After training is complete, volunteers can form community teams and help first responders after a disaster. Continue reading
