Urban Survival

The threats our families and communities face today can be terrifying. Economic collapse, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, power-grid failure, and nuclear war are all possibilities that we must be prepared for.

The term Urban Survival means having the skills, tactics, and ability to survive a widespread prolonged disaster. This means surviving without aid from the government or the local infrastructure while remaining in a densely populated urban environment.



If a disaster occurs, the greatest threat will come from the huge number of desperate, dangerous people - all fighting over the same limited resources such as water, food, and shelter.

Urban Survival training increases your chances of surviving during, and after, a disaster and subsequent survival situation. Therefore, Urban Survival has its own unique preparation, skill sets, and required common-sense knowledge base.


The three main elements of Urban Survival consist of:

  • Preparation – emergency supplies and action plans
  • Resources – using available resources in the local area
  • Mindset –the right mindset is critical to surviving any situation, especially for long periods of time
