What skills are needed to survive the first 24 hours of an evasion and survival scenario? Whether the event is caused by a natural disaster, civil unrest, or due to an enemy of the state, several principles stand out.
You need to get off the “X” and orient yourself as you decide your follow on actions. Use what you can to mask and change your appearance without looking like a walking bush.
Look for locations that are isolated and secluded to use as a hide site whether you plan on resting in place, during the day, or over night.
Consider how you will cross danger areas, and have a plan for water. But most importantly – rehearse recovery operations for isolated personnel before SHTF.
