   Coming soon - Women's Survial Workshop 


Standard Class:

This is an intense 3 to 4 hour course.  In our preparedness presentation we will cover a variety of timely and very important topics.

We will provide solutions for water and food storage, sheltering in place during emergencies, critical supplies and equipment, emergency lighting and heating and much more.

There will be many exhibits and demonstrations.  This will be a hands on course and we strongly encourage questions from all participants.  We also encourage you to take notes.

Use your newly acquired skills and knowledge to train family members and friends to form your own preparedness and survival team. 

Our survival portion takes you a step further than just preparing for an emergency.  We will discuss mental and physical conditioning, mindset, first aid, water procurement and many other important topics. 

Even if you have done nothing to prepare at this time, this course will not only get you started, it will give you guidance to put together a cost effetive plan for you and your family to survive.

In addition to all the great information you'll leave with, you will also be given a GI Surplus Survival Preparedness Club Card that will give you a discount off all purchases made at GI Surplus. 

Contact us today for more information on this class!   

Registration fee is $35.00/individual or families for $60.00.  Sign up early!! Please email or call to reserve your seat or for information on our upcoming classes!
