Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation. 

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not. 

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills. 

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible. 

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.

Zip Line Worker Dies a Hero

zip-line-worker-dies-a-hero

(ModernSurvival.org) – For the most part, zip lining is a fun and safe outdoor activity that thousands of people enjoy each year. However, as with anything in life, accidents do happen. On Monday, one zip line worker lost his life due to injuries sustained while trying to prevent such an accident.

Joaquin Romero, a 34-year-old worker at the La Jolla Zip Zoom Zipline, was attending his post atop a receiving platform. While helping a customer get anchored to the platform, she began to slide down the zip line.

Romero couldn’t stop the customer from sliding backward, so grabbed hold of her harness. According to a witness, this caused the pair to drift further from the platform — 100 feet above the ground.

Out of fear that their combined weight would cause the zip line to fail, Romero let go and dropped to the ground. Fire crews used a rescue basket and ropes to retrieve Romero. Eventually, he was airlifted to a local hospital, where he passed away from multiple blunt force injuries.

The woman Romero was trying to help survived the incident unharmed. The course where the incident occurred has since been closed while an investigation is underway.

For Romero, the decision to put himself in harm’s way to save another person makes him a hero. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
