Brant McGee, one of our team here at Angery American, in addition to being a star of Alone, the History Channel TV series, is also an often requested guest on local television for his expert advice on survival, both in the wilderness and when you’re hunkered down at home. Watch the video to get some tips on urban preparedness for natural disasters and how you can prepare at home for the unexpected.
If you want to take notes at home, we’ll save you the trouble of keeping up with Brant’s acronyms. He talks about a simple to remember phrase he learned 20 years ago that has come in handy over the years . “Please Remember What’s First.” It’s based on the needs you have, whether at home during a storm, or out in the wilderness, and the order in which you should approach handling these issues.
