The 7 P’s of Survival First Live Radio Show!

This was the first installment of my radio show on American Preppers Radio: Preppers Broadcasting Network. On this installment of the radio show Josh Chavez was going to be the guest; however, had a last minute conflict which made him not be able to be on the show. The show ended up being an introduction to the platform, an overview of current events and how they effect ones preparedness and approach to preparedness and then an overview of the History Channel's new series Alone, what everyone decided to take on the show and what my clothing and equipment choices would be and why! I invite you to listen to the show below. We will be rescheduling Josh "Hey Bear" Chavez to be on the show again in the near future so be sure to look for that show coming soon!

Host: Josh “The 7 P’s of Survival
The 7 P’s of Survival first live radio show 
Welcome to the 7 P’s of Survival first live radio show! This week we will introduce you to the 7 p’s of Survival Blog, its content and my general preparedness method. Once we get a few of the philosophical aspects out of the way I will talk a little bit about the format going forward and some future guests and topics.
History-Channel-Alone 7P's of Survival 
As tonight’s feature we will be discussing the History channel’s hit new survival Alone with one of it’s contestants Josh Chavez. This show places 10 survivors (many are popular YouTuber’s, bloggers and survival instructors) from across the United States and Canada on Canada’s Vancouver Island and the last man to leave wins $500,000 USD. Vancouver Island is an unforgiving rainforest just north of Washington State and is one of the most predator dense areas on the planet with over 500 wolves, 1000 bears and 5000 cougars. The participants were dropped off in the middle of the rainy season just a few hours before dark at random places around the island and were only allowed to take ten items of their choice, a safety kit (satellite phone and medical kit) and camera gear which they will use to document their entire experience (they are alone without a camera crew). Tonight we will speak with Josh Chavez from Ohio about his experiences on the show, his selected items and much more. Here is a little bit of information about Josh:

Josh considers himself a natural leader, and with his job as a law enforcement officer, he’s given the chance to test those leadership skills on a daily basis. When he’s not in uniform, he excels as an avid hunter, with bushcraft and survival skills developed through practice and a number of wilderness courses. Josh’s passion for outdoor self-reliance started in childhood with hunting. He soon realized how closely bushcraft skills were tied to the sport and his interest took off from there. For Josh, braving the wild of Vancouver Island is about the greatest test of the skills he’s been crafting for years. Although his greatest fear is leaving his family behind (including a pregnant wife, his daughter and son) he has always been a person to look danger in the eyes and is eager to see if his training as a police officer and outdoorsman will be enough for him to survive in such a rugged natural environment.

Here are the ten items Josh selected to bring on his survival journey to Vancouver Island:12×12 ground sheet;  550 paracord – 20m; Saw; Axe; Sleeping bag; Bivi bag (gortex sleeping bag cover); Large 2-quart pot; Ferro rod; 300 yards of single filament line with 25 assorted hooks; Bow and 6 arrows

To close the show I will introduce a YouTube Video I uploaded just before the show that will serve as this week’s skill challenge in which I ask for your feedback. Each week I will share a skill with you and request that you share your pictures and videos with me as we go. At the end of the year you will essentially have what it takes to make it through a basic survival class or a potential survival situation. This week’s challenge will focus on fire skill development.

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!
Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.

Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.
