Preparedness: 2nd Disaster Preparedness Class Registration!

This post may contain affiliate links.  This means that if you click on the link and place an order, I earn a small fee at no increased cost to you.  The money earned helps keep my pantry stocked.  Thank you for your support.

I'm going to go ahead and open registration for the 2nd disaster preparedness class as I'll be taking a break from the online world shortly and don't want to forget to do this!!!!

As a reminder here are some pertient facts you need to know before signing up ...

This second disaster preparedness class is a repeat of the first one.

The class is an online class.

The class size is limited to 150 people.  When class size has been met, the class will be closed to new members.  No one will be allowed to join after that.

The class is scheduled to begin on May 1st or earlier if class size is reached sooner.  The class will last approximately 4 weeks.

For the last class, we had numerous people wanting to join after the class had already started and were disappointed when they couldn't so I'm trying to give more time for word to get out this time.

Please only register for this class if you are serious about disaster preparedness and are willing to participate.  This is not a class for full time lurkers!

There is no cost for the class!

What did the members of the first class think?  Here's what some of them had to say (their comments are used with their permission) ....

It's amazing the amount of knowledge I gained from taking your class. Someone would comment on how they would handle the situation and it would be something I never thought of before. Seems like the class was just the right size too. thanks again.  Vicki

I really liked the class, gave me new insights on being prepared. Love reading everyone comments.  Coleen

I have loved the lessons, I think a smaller group allows us to interact with each other better than a larger group would. Now I have a list of things I need to do to prepare for most situations. Margaret

I loved the interaction and the fact that we were from different parts of the country / world. I got so many great ideas and things I would have never thought about. Took plenty of notes. I think you did a great job of setting up each day - I liked having the weekends off. (so to speak -from new things happening) The group seemed to really get in to it and try to figure out what works for them and where they stand on preparedness. Thanks for doing this.  Crystal

The class size was perfect. The subject matter was very thought provoking. Toni

I really enjoyed it a learned a lot from everyone. I also liked the pre class questions and discussions. This is a area that I need to work on. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I also liked the type of questions you asked. Lorie

I learned a lot from these classes and will continue to revisit my notes to ensure I am better prepared for any future events.  Sharlene

I want to Thank you for doing this class. It takes a lot of time and work. It is much appreciated. I think the class size was good. I think if it was any larger the discussion time would get complicated and hard to follow because of too many comments. I loved hearing from people from all over and various experiences. The questions were very thought provoking. Several I had to take my time to mull over in my mind. It did make me take A very serious look at my home pantry family and self. I did enjoy some of the light hearted answers. I enjoyed this time with these ladies and you and will miss it. I will look forward to your fall class. God bless you for taking this on. Bonnie

I found all the classes to be informative and thought provoking. Thoroughly enjoyed them and feel that I am much more prepared should some thing occur. Thanks for allowing me to participate. Deloris

I loved the class and the size was good. I feel like I got to know a few more ladies this way. I would be signing up for the next class for sure. I thought about many things and found things to implement. I feel I need to go back through the posts and take notes as going along I found things to implement but didn't write them all down.  Thank you very much!  Annabel

I really enjoyed this class. The class size was good. I've learned so much and hubby and son helped with what we would do. Christina

I really got a lot out of this and really appreciate you putting the class on. It really made me think and I learned many things from the whole group! I'm definitely in for the fall class!! Tami

Thank you for all the work you put into this. I think the class size was good.  This class has helped me to realize even more that I need to go through what we have and organize and get rid of what we don't use and prioritize what we have and what we need. Your check ins with for example batteries you had was so good. I had let our batteries go down and right after you asked a real good sale came on and I had the coupons. Now we have had the batteries we needed for the drill. I would like to get a check list of things we should have or look for at garage sales this summer that would help in a crisis situation. I am sure I'm not the only one sharing with others from the class so you aren't only reaching the people in the class but others as well. Be Blessed.  Lisa

As mentioned earlier, I'm getting ready to take a blogging break but you can go ahead and 
 click on this link to join the class now.   I will open up the group and do the approvals around the middle of April when my break is over.  This means that you will not get immediate approval.  Approvals will be done once my break is over.

I hope to see you in class!

Update 4/14/2017 ... I am now approving requests to join the class!

  1. Patsy, the link doesn't seem to be working

    1. Connie, I reset the link. Please try again!

    2. Sorry, still not working.

    3. Connie, I think I have it fixed now. I had someone else try it and it worked. Let me know if it doesn't. Thank you for your patience.

  2. Patsy, I cant get the link to work. Thanks, Sherri

    1. Sherry, I reset the link, please try again.

  3. Hi Patsy; I clicked on the link, and it went to a Facebook signup page. Is that what I needed to do to register, or is there another step?

  4. Patsy I won't be enrolling this time around. I did take a lot away from your first course and really enjoyed it.
    Our yard currently looks like the photo at the top of this post. The cyclone crossed the coast 860km North of us, but was so large we are getting the edges in the form of gusty wind and lots of rain. The cyclone is predicted to travel south as a tropical rain depression. This means lots of rain is coming our way. Glad we're prepared for anything that comes our way.
    Given that three weeks ago we were drought declared and on level 2 water restrictions, rain is most welcome. Having said that we might be putting flood preparation into place.
    Anyone reading this and tossing the idea of doing Patsy's course around, I would encourage you to do so. I can tell you that we have everything in place and are as ready as we can be. Join up.

  5. Patsy,
    I was wondering...does taking the class require a really high speed internet? We live in a place where our bandwidth is limited and I can't view lots of videos or interactive things without using all of our monthly amount up. Thanks for any information. When you said you wanted people involved (not just lurking) I thought I better find that out first. We have unlimited in the middle of the night:), but I am not always up at that time. Again, thanks.

    1. Terri, there are no videos or youtubes to watch, it is purely discussion among the class members and me the teacher, I post questions and topics and the class responds. I hope this answers your questions.

  6. Hi Patsy,
    I've learnt so much from this class even though I missed a lot due to circumstances. So I'm signing up for the next one to cover what I missed. Thankyou so much for the time & effort you have put into the class.
    God Bless
