This training opportunity encapsulates the F.A.S.T. (fighting and survival tactics) Experience! Scenario based training to educate, enlighten and prepare the participant for a catastrophic event that might involve extended relocation in a semi to non-permissive environment with armed hostiles and limited to no infrastructure to contend with. There are three presentations contained in this series of courses that cover everything from early preparations to live-fire maneuvers based on actual and projected events with debriefings from Major Hurricane recovery efforts over the last 30 years that we've been involved with including the recent storms Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico as well as overseas deployments to combat environments including Iraq and Afghanistan.
