Look around you. Vehicles are a treasure trove of resources in an emergency. From the windshield wipers and the metal strips within them that can be made in to lock picks, shims or weapons, to car jack’s and crow bars that can get you past most doors if you know what your doing.

Some cars also come standard with basic fist aid kits. They are not full on trauma specific, but it’s better than nothing in an emergency. Look into what car companies specifically have these and where they are stored. I have had some over enthusiastic students come back with several of these in some of the urban movement classes.

And remember, these resources are useless with out the proper training Austere Medical Management- Callidus Collective Tirsia Pugna Phase can get you there.

Let’s keep each other safe. Don’t be the guy recording on your phone. Be the fucker getting shit done and helping people out.

Stillness is death.
