Would you know how to survive a hurricane, tornado, or flood? Most people don't. In this one time class I will teach your student how to survive natural disasters.

Class Experience

  • Your student(s) will learn how to prepare for and how to survive natural disasters.
I have years of experience working in emergency management, and disaster preparedness.
I was a fire fighter/first responder for 10 years with the Cy-Fair Fire Department in Houston, TX USA. I also worked with the US Coast Guard for nearly 5 years, where my primary duties were law enforcement, search and rescue, and logistics. 

In the Coast Guard I was part of the District 7 Hurricane Emergency Assistance Response Team, where I helped families prepare for, and recover from hurricanes.
I have also been an incident commander on multiple disasters, and have most if not all ICS (Incident Command System) courses.

Natural disasters can be very scary for most learners, but I have never had a complaint in my over 3 years of teaching. I teach in a fun and interesting manner, while emphasizing that it is important to be prepared. I also talk about how unlikely it is to be actually injured or worse during a natural disaster.
