Outdoor Survival for a World of Change is our catch cry - you
never know what is around the corner of life. Being prepared for
all circumstances is the answer.
we subject ourselves to a challenging situation, it would be an
advantage to know what stresses we are likely to face and more
importantly how we will react to them. Being aware of what we
will have to deal with will eliminate a lot of uncertainty that
can weaken our resolve. By identifying these stresses it’s possible
in some cases to eliminate them or formulate a method of dealing
with them. The only way you will know how you will react is to
experience them. All life is a learning curve which instils knowledge,
its called experience which is priceless. Armed with common sense
and drawing on experience will get you out of most situations.
But how do you get the experience and how will you know what your
reactions will be.
The answer is to push yourself to the limit while being carefully
monitored. It’s no good if I plan to climb Everest and train for
it in the Brecon Beacons. The training must be as hard as, or
even harder than the actual adventure. The saying “Train hard
fight easy “, is very true. Add to this “you cannot cheat the
gym”, will put you in good shape for the big event. You must put
the effort in which helps eliminate all the nagging doubts that
may jeopardise your success, like am I fit enough, can I carry
this weight, am I going in the right direction. It’s of little
use when something happens and you say “I wished I had done this,
or I should have done that.” So understanding your body will greatly
help you overcome adversity. There are many stresses to face all
requiring different responses. How do you respond when exhausted?
And can I make a decision when soaking wet? Its questions like
these that you must ask yourself.
how you respond to hunger, what is it like to be deprived of sleep,
how you react when thirsty. Can you deal with pain, and how do
you react to fear. How does the cold affect you and what is your
tolerance to heat. Have an idea before you are exposed. The majority
of people see fear and pain as a disadvantage, whereas in fact
they are positive survival assets. Without these emotions we would
do stupid things, and pay the consequences. Fear stops us doing
something we are unsure of, or makes us think before we act. Knowledge
overcomes fear and once we understand the risks and dangers we
can take the necessary precautions overcoming the problem.
try to hide your fears it is nothing to be ashamed of. The moment
you do something dangerous and not get a buzz is the time to stop
that pursuit. Fear makes us revise our actions and take notice.
Parachutists, climbers and divers all experience apprehension,
but they overcome it because they are confident in their preparation,
equipment and training. By controlling fear in yourself you can
control fear in others.
The down side of fear is panic. If it is not checked fear can
lead to panic and all is lost. Fear can root you to the spot denying
you of all coordination and clouding your judgement. When confronted
by an unexpected situation, control your emotions by breathing.
Stand tall with the feet shoulder width apart and breathe through
the nose for a count of ten. Hold the breath for ten seconds before
exhaling forcibly through the mouth to a ten count. This slows
everything down allowing you to put things in perspective.
although unpleasant is the way the body cries for help. It draws
attention to an injured part to prevent further injury. If we
know what’s causing the pain and more importantly how to treat
the injury, we can overcome this, or greatly reduce the impact
of it. Loneliness and isolation have to be faced. It’s always
best to have a companion but you must be able to rely on yourself
when the need arises. You can con other people to how good you
are but you can’t fool yourself. One of the biggest fears you
may have to face is “fear of your own weakness”. So put the effort
in leave no nagging doubts that may work against you when the
going gets tough. A person in unknown territory or experiencing
a new problem can let their imagination run riot. This can lead
to illogical behaviour with serious consequences. Knowledge will
reinforce self belief giving you confidence eliminating these
time to run through your proposed adventure, looking for all the
dangers. Ask yourself ‘what will I do if this happens’. Imagine
the worse possible scenario and come up with a solution. Have
a contingency plan which you can execute if things go wrong. This
way you won’t be caught out, it’s when you don’t address the problems
that mistakes and accidents happen. Failing to plan is planning
to fail. Get to know your body and develop your senses. With time
you can develop a 6th type of sense which helps keep you safe
and make the correct choices. You get a feel for the ground; can
forecast the weather, judge distances, and spot potential dangers.
Now and again you feel a hunch or get an uneasy feeling, pay attention
to these they could save your life.
know how to survive in a temperate zone in all weathers. The cold
is probably the hardest to survive in. It numbs the mind and any
mistake is unforgiving. Nothing lives permanently in the extreme
areas of the world they migrate to more forgiving areas. Only
man goes there to exploit mineral wealth. High mountains are devoid
of life and problems get greater with altitude. By getting out
of our comfort zone we soon learn the essentials and acquire new
skills. Don’t let the comfort of home go against you when you
find yourself on limited resources. Again it’s only with practice
that you will attain these skills that can be applied anywhere,
not just in the wilderness.
Wiseman - ex British SAS - Truways Survival Expert
State of Victoria was devastated last summer when a wild fire
of unprecedented ferocity descended on it’s rural and mountain
communities on a day remembered as Black Saturday. Many
lives were lost and hundreds of properties destroyed as a result.
In the aftermath of this disaster many questions have been asked
concerning what could have been done to safeguard us against
the threat posed by bushfire. One suggestion that continues
to surface again and again is the use of purpose built fire
shelters provisioned for pre and post fire survival.
- Protect against the ravage of FIRE. Our S.O.S
are custom built for bunker requirements with fire rated doors
and other facilities to meet fire standards. They can be buried
and are equipped for smoke ventilation and other survival contents.
We equip the containers with survival provisions based on long
term emergency requirements.The threat of bushfire haunts many
people throughout the world. How often on the evening news do
we see footage of homes being lost despite the best efforts
of firefighters in places as far afield as Los Angeles to Athens,
not ignoring of course our own dry continent.

prepared. Disaster Preparedness is a discipline that involves
preparing for an emergency before it occurs, disaster response
(e.g. emergency evacuation, quarantine, mass decontamination,
etc.), as well as supporting, and rebuilding society after natural
or human-made disasters have occurred. In general, disaster
preparedness involves a continuous process by which all individuals,
groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid
or ameliorate the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards.
Actions taken depend in part on perceptions of risk to those
exposed. Effective disaster preparedness relies on thorough
integration of emergency plans.
A pre-packed survival container can be delivered to victims
of floods, hurricanes, storms and other catastrophes
from a central storage facility so that survival is supported
quickly and efficiently after the event. We provide a truly
exciting package of survival equipment and product for those
wanting future proof assurance. You can deploy the S.O.S
EMERGENCY CONTAINER(S) to a location of your choice
or have us store them until required. You get the keys on purchase.
a hurricane hits, winds in excess of 155 miles per hour can cause catastrophic
damage. Emergency kits with food are an important piece of hurricane
disaster preparedness. What will your family will do if you happen to
lie in the disaster path of a hurricane? Many victims of Hurricane Katrina
and North Queensland have remained without water, food or shelter days
after the storm itself had passed. Government response time to the disaster
was hindered by political processes and access to the region. You can
be better prepared to survive a hurricane and other natural disasters
by simply having on hand emergency food and shelter. If you live along
the Australian coastline — or upto several hundred miles inland, your
disaster preparedness plan should take the threat of hurricanes and
tropical storms very seriously. Parts of Queensland experience heavy
rains and floods each year from hurricanes. Protect your family from
hurricane disaster with S.O.S
EMERGENCY CONTAINER(S) emergency
food kits. Hurricanes can produce widespread torrential rains. Floods
are the deadly and destructive result. Slow moving storms and tropical
storms moving into mountainous regions tend to produce especially heavy
rain. Excessive rain can trigger landslides or mud slides, especially
in mountainous regions. Flash flooding can occur due to intense rainfall.
Flooding on rivers and streams may persist for several days or more
after the storm. Properly equipped with a disaster preparedness plan
and survival food kits your family will have the food your family needs
to survive for up to two weeks.
are one of the most common hazards in Australia. The devastating effects
of floods and flooding can be local, impacting a neighborhood or community,
or very large, affecting entire river basins and multiple states. S.O.S
can help you and your family through any flood disaster. Not all floods
are not alike. Some floods develop slowly, sometimes over a period of
days. But flash floods can develop quickly, sometimes in just a few
minutes and without any visible signs of rain. Flash floods often have
a dangerous wall of roaring water that carries rocks, mud, and other
debris and can sweep away most things in its path. Overland flooding
occurs outside a defined river or stream, such as when a levee is breached,
but still can be destructive. Flooding can also occur when a dam breaks,
or overspill valves are released (Brisbane) producing effects similar
to flash floods Be aware of flood disaster hazards where you live, and
be prepared with emergency food kits, especially if you live in a low-lying
area. Even very small streams, gullies, creeks, culverts, dry streambeds,
or low-lying ground that appear harmless in dry weather can flood. Every
state is at risk of flood disaster.
An earthquake can strike suddenly without warning, putting your disaster
preparedness plan to the test. If you have S.O.S
you and your family could have the food and supplies you need to survive
one of nature's most frightening and destructive forces. Earthquakes
can be violent, and strike at any time of the day or night. If an earthquake
occurs in a populated area, it may cause many deaths and injuries and
extensive property damage. Although there are no guarantees of safety
during an earthquake, if you live in an earthquake prone area, you can
do a lot to prepare to survive an earthquake and its terrible aftereffects.
Your earthquake preparedness and advance planning can save lives and
significantly reduce injuries and property damage. In addition the ability
to recover life support quickly after a quake is important and S.O.S
EMERGENCY CONTAINER(S) can
be shipped in from remote storage facilities within a day or so. With
planning, your earthquake preparedness can save your life and the lives
of the ones you love. Don't wait — put your disaster preparedness plan
into effect today!
by earthquakes on the sea floor Tsunami's can be very devastating to
coastal locations as recently shown by the events in Japan, Indonesia
and other locations. With full loss of all services and slow response
by authorities to the provision of water and food in devasted locations
the impact of being prepared can mean the difference between life and
EMERGENCY CONTAINER(S) can
not prevent or protect against the event but they can make survivor
recovery more acceptable. They can be delivered into Tusnami stricken
locations from remote storage after the event providing shelter, food,
warmth and other life support and survival systems. Don't wait—put your
disaster preparedness plan into effect before it's too late.
Preparedness: Severe Winter Storms
When a severe winter storm hits, the heavy snowfall and extreme cold
can immobilize an entire region. Your disaster preparedness with S.O.S
EMERGENCY CONTAINER(S) emergency
food kits can make all the difference when it comes to how well you
weather severe storms when they arrive. Even areas that normally experience
mild winters can be hit with a major snowstorm or extreme cold. Severe
winter storms can result in flooding, storm surge, closed highways,
blocked roads, downed power lines and hypothermia. Make sure you and
your family are prepared for such disasters with emergency plans and
survival food kits. With preparation, and with survival food kits, you
can ensure your family is prepared for a a severe winter storm disaster.
Don't wait—put your disaster preparedness plan into effect before it's
Disaster Preparedness: Pandemic
Disaster preparedness means being prepared for an emergency of any kind
— natural or man-made, and being prepared means having emergency food
kits on hand, ready to use when they're needed. It's important to prepare
in advance for threats to public health such as pandemics of infections
disease like the 2009 "swine flu" pandemic. A pandemic is
defined as epidemic of infectious disease that is spreading through
human populations across a large region; for instance a continent, or
even worldwide. A widespread endemic disease that is stable in terms
of how many people are getting sick from it is not a pandemic. Further,
flu pandemics exclude seasonal flu. Throughout history there have been
a number of pandemics, such as smallpox and tuberculosis. More recent
pandemics include the HIV pandemic and the 2009 flu pandemic. Having
a emergency kits stocked with enough food for two weeks can limit exposure.
Fewer trips out into public could literally spare you and your loved
ones from being infected. S.O.S
could provide food for you and your family until things return to a
"safe" and normal state, and should be a part of your own
pandemic preparedness plan. You may even have to temporarily move out
of high density population centers (Cities) untill a pandemic passes
and the ability to quickly deliver your portable life support facility
is a great advantage.
Disaster Preparedness: Terrorism
Disaster preparedness means being prepared for any kind of emergency—natural
or man-made, and being prepared means having emergency kits on hand,
ready to use when they're needed. It's important to prepare in advance
for threats to homeland security and bioterrorism. Most Americans are
confident their food supply is safe from natural contaminants. Even
though the federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that about
one person in four contracts a food-borne illness each year, and that
325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths occur annually due to consumption
of inadvertently contaminated food, the public generally believes the
food they purchase will not make them sick. However, Al Qaeda's September
11 attacks and the subsequent anthrax incidents raise an additional
concern for America's food supply. Deliberate contamination of the nation's
food supply is a real possibility and the economic and psychological
implications of an attack on the food supply are sobering. Some foods
are more susceptible to deliberate contamination than others, but there
is no practical way one can eliminate the possibility of being affected.
Emergency kits are an important part of disaster preparedness for emergencies
resulting from threats to homeland security and bioterrorism. Protect
you and your family with
S.O.S EMERGENCY CONTAINERS(S).
Although the Australian homeland security commission is doing what it
can to protect the food supply, there is a high likelihood that terrorists
will at some point use a bioterrorism attack on our food supply avenue.
This could mean local grocery stores won't have food for several weeks
while the government sorts out a problem. An emergency kit will provide
food for you and your family until the nation's food supply is back
to normal. That's a sound disaster preparedness plan!
Disaster Preparedness: Unemployment
Unemployment is something none of us want to go through. The term itself
conjures up feelings of despair, helplessness, and fear. Are you prepared
with an unemployment preparedness plan? The economic events of the recent
past have made everyone feel less secure. Things that were once reliable
now seem unsure. Although you may feel powerless to control everything
in your life, one thing you can control is making sure you and your
family have emergency food kits stocked with enough to eat in the event
economic downturn affects your family in the form of job loss or unexpected
unemployment. When thinking about how to prepare for unemployment survival,
few people put food at the top of the list. But how many things are
really more important than that? What would you do if you couldn't afford
to buy food? How long would you be able to survive? Your personal unemployment
preparedness plan should include emergency food kits with enough survival
food for your family to survive until your personal financial crisis
has ended. You may have to sell your home, move to more modest accomodation
or even purchase a block of land knowing you can survive untill the
crisis passes. Protect you and your family from hunger in the event
of your unemployment.
SOS EMERGENCY CONTAINER takes away some of the worry of uncertain economic
times by ensuring you have enough survival food to feed your family.
you have no idea what is coming, then you are not going to be in a position
to do anything to help yourself or anyone else!.
THE GRID LIVING
in another category, many people are looking to escape urban life which
is feeding up poisons in just about everything we eat, drink and do.
And therefore the attraction of remote off the grid ecological living
is increasing, not to mention the rising costs of living in urban centers
forcing people to reconsider the great Australian Dream of owning their
own home. OFF-THE-GRID living enables people to survive in remote locations
for nominated durations and includes food, water catchment, energy generation,
health and medical supplies, transport, cooking, clothing and much more.
Great to drop on a block of land - be prepared.

AND VACATION PURSUITS
there is a leisure market where vacation intentions can be fulfilled
using S.O.S. packaged containers the contents of which can be utilized
just about anywhere and the container picked up afterwards. You can
even sleep on top of the container in what we call SKY-CAMPS
when required. Perhaps you may have considered a bush or remote camping
holiday with all the goodies required for basic survival (and some little
luxuries includig recreational equipment) and have a location in mind
- we deliver to site, you use the gear and we collect afterwards. It
puts a whole new dimension on vacations. We can road transport or fly
the containers in.
a holiday location very flexible. We call these S.O.S
Leisure Pursuit kits. Full inventories are tailored to your requirements
including motorised transport accessories. Use a ladder (supplied) and
pitch your tent(s) (supplied) on the container roof and enjoy security
from anoying animals and people. Guard rails and other items protect
you children on SKY-CAMPS.
you think about it, food and water are vital to our survival. A
human being can only live for a few weeks without food and only a few
days without water. So why aren't we more concerned with protecting
our most basic necessities? In light of the tragic events in New Orleans
during Hurricane Katrina in the USA, hurricane in Queensland, Tsunami
in Japan, quakes in Chile , the floods in Queensland, NSW and Victoria,
the power outage in New York City that brought the city to a standstill,
and the constant threat of fires, earthquakes, tornadoes and other natural
disasters across the country, it is important to make sure we always
have the basic necessities of life with enough home food storage for
your family to survive for at least two weeks.
We have designed an emergency food pack and emergency survival kits
to give people at least two weeks of great food and clean water until
more permanent solutions can be obtained. Many of the meals are freeze-dried,
which means they will last up to 10 years and retain their nutritional
value. S.O.S Food meals come prepackaged as lasagna, beef stroganoff,
and a host of other great entrees. Why not make sure you and your loved
ones are prepared with enough food and water to survive the ever-increasing
number of disasters in the world?
It makes sense. Small survival packages offered on many sites are OK
for a couple of days but if a cataclysmic event happens you will need
to survive for some time. BE-PREPARED!
