Disaster Preparedness Seminar Jan 18 at Thayer Senior Center
A Disaster Preparedness Seminar will be presented at the Fun and Friends Senior Center in Thayer from 9 am to 5 pm Saturday, January 18, according to event organizer Mike Slack of rural Thayer.
“This is the third year that OSLU – Ozarks Self Reliant Living University will hold a daylong seminar in January, starting the new year off with knowledge on how to survive and thrive through ice storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks and other disasters, both natural and manmade” Slack said. “OSLU was founded and taught by my wife, Deb Slack who passed away in August. The January daylong event was something she felt strongly about. She taught classes in Thayer, Kosh, West Plains and Willow Springs. As a first step towards bringing OSLU classes back, taught by volunteer instructors, the January 18 event will feature six instructors: Bryan Haas of Ozark Mountain Self Reliance on Prepping 101 and what to put in a bug out bag; John Price of the West Plains HAM Radio Club on radio communication during emergencies; Dave Lohr of Kosh Trading Post will demonstrate survival techniques in primitive conditions, including how to make your own bow and arrows, how to trap small game and survive without shelter; Wayne Simmons, an Oregon County Ambulance paramedic on Emergency Medical Care When No Doctor is Available; Bob Anderson, author of the bestselling Survivalist novels and a 30 year Air Force Military Police veteran on Organizing Your Community; and Mike Evans, radio talk show host on Restoring Freedom in America.
