Plan, Organize, Build Your Mutual Assistance Group, Charley Hogwood

Want to know how to create a prepper group- and do it successfully?

Just what is a MAG (Mutual Assistance Group) anyway? What should you consider before you seek out potential prepping friends and where should you start looking?  How do you talk to people without sounding crazy and without giving away any secrets?   How prepared should a candidate be before you consider them for your group? How many people should a group have?  What are some ideas to help the group work together better and reduce conflict?  Should a group have regular meetings, and if so, what should you do at a meeting? And, should your group accept money from members, in place of participation?

Find out all this and more on this Secrets of a Survivalist radio show.  This week we talk with Charley Hogwood, Author of the book:  MAGS- The People Part of Prepping – How to Plan, Build, And Organize a Mutual Assistance Group in a Survival Situation.

Charley has many years of experience in the military as a Reconnaissance Scout and Infantry Squad Leader where his job was to train and lead people of various skill levels and personalities in a multitude of missions in the field. Charley holds 35 FEMA certifications and a certificate in Emergency Management. He took his passion of preparedness to work by creating Personal Readiness Education Programs where he trains people in the ways of survival and preparedness.

Realistic Safety Strategies for Girls and Women

Teaching girls and women how to protect themselves-both now- and in a disaster.

Do you have a daughter, girl-friend, wife, sister or mother that you care about? Are you concerned about their everyday survival and well-being, as well as their ability to survive and protect themselves in a disaster situation?  Listen to this show and find out how traditional gender roles impact the ability of girls and women to stay safe and survive in crisis situations, and what are the biggest dangers that girls and women face.   Does intuition play a role in survival?  What do girls and women worry about most when it comes to personal safety and survival? Is it possible for females to physically protect themselves from a male attacker who’s bigger and stronger?  What’s the best weapon for girls and women?  What’s the number one thing girls and women should be doing to prepare for disasters and catastrophes?

Most people believe survivors are the hard, tough, ‘Rambo’ types. It’s important to for everyone, but especially girls and women, to understand that survival is not necessarily about “toughness”. In fact, there are five qualities that characterize true survivors that are really surprising.

This week on the Secrets of a Survivalist Radio show, our guest is Nicole Sundine of Realistic Safety Solutions.

As a Victim Advocate and Detective, Nicole conducted countless investigations and provided crisis intervention to hundreds of girls and women who were victims of harassment, abuse and violence.

Now she is an influential author and speaker, who uses modern methods that resonate with girls and women to teach personal protection skills in an entirely new way.

Courage, Hope, Valor: The Lifesaving Therapy of Pets for Vets

If you appreciate our veterans, and if you have ever loved a pet- YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS SHOW!

Did you know that 22 of our military veterans commit suicide every single day?  Often times these men and women have experienced such unthinkable trauma- both physical and mental, that it is difficult for them to come back home and live a normal life.  All too often our military men and women have had to leave the best parts of themselves out on the battlefield.

In the same regard, there are countless perfectly healthy and loving,  but abandoned dogs in the US, that end up being euthanized,  simply because they have no place to call home.

Pets for Vets is the brainchild of Clarissa Black, who realized that animal therapy for veterans in the VA setting worked- but she thought-  Why shouldn’t these vets be able to get “therapy” 24/7?

Today Pets for Vets runs a “match-making service” for homeless dogs and sometimes hopeless veterans, and the result changes each life for the better.

Listen to how Pets for Vets finds specific dogs for each specific veteran, and how they train each dog before they move into the veteran’s home, with specific training geared toward that vet’s needs.

Listen to the heartwarming stories of vets and their pets who were “saved” by each other, and how neither is a statistic now, as a result.  Listen to how these vets have overcome PTSD, reduced their need for medication, been helped to return to society, and how their companion dog, made them whole again.

If you care about our veterans, and want to thank them for their service- you need to listen to this show.
