Obtaining suitable water!
In this week’s installment of the 7 P’s of Survival show we will be talking all things water. Of course we will have the normal blog updates, let you know what is coming soon and the weekly survival challenge but 90% of the show we hope to dedicate to the evaluation of water sources and purification methods.

This week we will be talking all about water, more specifically ways to obtain water and ways to make it suitable for human consumption. We will start the night off talking about where to look for water whether that is by reading the landscape, from plants, from natural springs, or some other medium. We will discuss water vines, natural springs, condensation, dew collection, rain water collection, and many additional sources to locate you water source.

I will then move the discussion to a great deal of commercial and improvised water filtration and purification systems that I have used over the last several years to include: Big Berkey; Sawyer (See my review HERE; Live Straw; SteriPen; various pump filters; Chlorine; Chlorine tablets; Purification tablets; Moss; Tripod filter- See my instructions HERE; Charcoal/bandanna filter; Bandanna filter; Water bottle filter; See my instructions HERE; Distilation; and Boiling in a plastic container along with the science for it and against it.

We will then talk about practicality of these systems their short comings, where they shine and what I personally prefer. Finally we explore what a few recent water related crisis to include Katrina, WV chemical spill, Great Lakes Algee Issues and the various oil spills. While exploring these disasters we will talk about water storage, availability and which filtration methods would have worked the best for those disasters.

I hope to hear from each of you about the experiences you have had with your water filtration systems and your lessons learned from field use!
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.
