    Kudos to The Survival Mom

    Last month I attended the AESA conference in Carefree. Emergency planning is one of my responsibilities at work, and the AESA (Arizona Emergency Services Association) is an association of emergency planning professionals, first responders, law enforcement and other folks involved in emergency planning, in Arizona.

    One of the speakers at this year’s conference was Lisa Bedford, The Survival Mom. I was a bit skeptical, but I need to tell you that Lisa not only knows her stuff, but she is a great speaker and a wealth of information to boot. She certainly held her own, amongst all of “the experts”! The story doesn’t end here though. My wife as of late, has become a “prepper”. Worried about the economy, government instability and other factors, she has really been working at stocking our emergency supplies and getting a plan. I didn’t know what a prepper was, until I heard Lisa speak. Lisa is a blogger to boot, and her website is full of info. I bet that, regardless of your level of survival experience, you can’t spend 15 minutes surfing her site, and not learn something. It turns out too that Lisa runs classes at different sites on topics ranging from preparedness basics to cooking “off the grid”. My wife took two classes with Lisa this weekend at Honeyville Farms in Chandler - look for a review soon!

    I was struck by something Lisa told our group in Carefree. “After Katrina, I decided that I would never be found standing on a bridge, waiting for someone to come and rescue me.” Professionally and personally, I have always considered myself to be “survival savvy”. Lisa makes me feel like a rookie. I encourage you to learn more about The Survival Mom, Lisa Bedford - lecturer, author, and survival expert. She’s doing a very valuable service for families across the country.
