About Talon Survival


A Word from Raven,

Hello and thank you for visiting Talon Survival. I have always taken great pride in helping others and sharing knowledge. In doing so, I believe you can make the internet, and world as a whole, a better place.

I am a husband, father, a certified medic of 15 years, and a volunteer firefighter and fire/EMS instructor for 10.  I have operated in a number of different trades in my life About Raven with Talon Survivalincluding:

  • emergency response
  • information technology systems
  • occupational health and safety
  • emergency/incident management
  • emergency communications.

In this time I have obtained a unique blend of skills and experiences which have taught me that planning and preparing for emergencies of all shapes and sizes is essential to improving the outcome for my family during those hard times.  I have also learned that technology can make a person more efficient and effective, even in the quest for survival.  However it must supplement preparedness and survival skills, not replace them.

It is these skills and experiences that guide me in my mission of family preparedness.  Through my experiences and observations, I have a growing concern with the stability of our society and the path we are on as a collective.  As a father, my goal is to make a better place for my children, not make more of a mess for them to clean up later.  Part of making the world a better place and making a better life for them starts with preparation.

While being proactive and planning as a family, we are developing lifelong skills, a set of values and morals, and preparing future generations to handle the mental and physical stresses at hand during times of emergency.  In some cases, preparedness can overt an emergency all together, just by taking a proactive approach and being prepared.
