Survival Medicine Hour: Mudslides, Survival Medics, Supplies, More

Share Button


In a long term survival situation, it will be an extremely fortunate family or group that has a physician or other formally trained medical professional among its members. When there is no doctor, however, someone in your group should be assigned the responsibilities of group medic. That person will make the difference between success and failure for a community that has lost access to modern medicine.

Joe and Amy Alton discuss supplies, responsibilities, and other factors that go into being a successful medic for times of trouble, especially for a survival community.

Also, mudslides in Peru and Brazil kill dozens, what are they and how do they differ from avalanches and floods? Special considerations and safety measures before and during a mudslide risk period are discussed in detail.

All this and more in the latest Survival Medicine Hour with Joe and Amy Alton, reporting from the great states of Utah, Arizona, and Nevada!
