adult ed class: preparedness

I am offering two classes for the Darby Adult Ed program this fall. Pre-registration officially lasts through Monday, September 22nd. If there are 7 or more registered, the class will take place.

One is a 2-hour short course called “Radio Communicating Options“. It covers walkie-talkies to HAM Radio with primary focus on emergency communications. It runs from 10-noon on Saturday, September 27th.

Related, but a separate subject, the next 9 Saturdays will have study groups leading to HAM licenses if there is enough interest.

Here is what the flyer says about my big fall class:

Being Prepared

The Boy Scout motto is just at least as valid now as it ever was. Nature and man have a way of delivering emergencies to our door. Whether they are disastrous or inconvenient is up to what we have done beforehand.

This course will be based on the book Countdown To Preparedness – The Prepper’s 52-week Course to Total Disaster Readiness” by Jim Cobb. In our 9 week course, we will cover the basics of that text, share information, resources and local concerns.
