(null)

Panteao Productions is happy to announce the release of the next video title in the new Make Ready to Survive instructional video series.

Suburban & City Environment is now available streaming to Panteao subscribers. The DVD versions will begin shipping next week.

The instructors in the series include former US Army Delta Operator Paul Howe, Dave Canterbury from the Pathfinder Self Reliance School, US Army Special Forces Green Beret Kyle Harth, disaster preparedness consultant and author Jim Cobb, and NE MacDougald, who started his career in Vietnam with the 519th Military Intelligence Bn (MACV), and today is an author and consultant.

Make Ready to Survive: Suburban & City Environment
Suburban & City Environment addresses medium length events like prolonged power outages, snow storms, hurricanes, and other localized damage due to a disaster where food, power and fuel are not readily available. Specific considerations are given for folks living in the city as well as suburban settings. Instructors Paul Howe, Jim Cobb, Kyle Harth, and N.E. MacDougald walk you through the medium term survival budget, bugging in, home security and lockdown, communications, getting from work or play to home during a crisis, advanced first aid, identifying hazards and hazardous areas, quantity and types of food to have on hand, workplace survival gear, and more. Localized rioting and civil unrest, power outages or a natural crisis can be dealt with and managed when you are prepared. We help you to get to that point of being prepared.

A total of 13 videos have been filmed in the Make Ready to Survive series. More info on the series can be found on the Panteao website.

Solkoa Introduces Medical Training at SHOT Show

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

We are entering new territory. Since 2001, deployed troops have, for the most part, enjoyed a great deal of forward deployed support infrastructure, including a vast medical apparatus with different levels of care available almost at your fingertips. As we draw down forces in forward areas, that medical support takes longer and longer to access as it moves farther and farther away from the operational space. For example, small units deployed to AFRICOM can literally be days away from definitive care due to the tyranny of distance across that vast continent with MEDEVAC requiring vehicle transit and airlift.

Solkoa recognizes these changes and is expanding over 10 years of specialized instruction experience into prolonged field care in austere environments. For some, this will be “back to the future”, reclaiming capabilities that existed in the SOF community before the current conflict. But it’s much more than that. Huge strides have been made in medical care over the past decade. Solkoa will show you how to go beyond TCCC and integrate these capabilities into the new reality of advanced remote field care.

New Survival Video Series From Panteao – Make Ready To Survive

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

I am super stoked about this new series of videos. They have lined up some serious talent and each title will give you a variety of expert points of view on the subject at hand.

Columbia, SC, October 22, 2014 – Panteao Productions is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the Make Ready to Survive instructional video series. This line of instructional videos is a departure for Panteao from the firearms training videos the company is known for producing.

“This was a pretty large undertaking for us. In order to get the shots we needed, our crew filmed on location in the everglades of FL, the back country of Ohio, the mountains of Colorado, and eastern Texas. Five instructors were selected to teach the series based on their background and life experiences. Each brought something different to the table and combined makes for one heck of a learning experience,” said John Tormey, Director of the Make Ready to Survive Series.

Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions, added, “We received a tremendous amount of support from manufacturers and suppliers when we told them about the survival series. It was with their help that we were able to make this series possible. We originally thought we would have content for three videos. When we were finished filming we ended up with thirteen different titles in the series.”

Instead of reality show entertainment like the current television shows on prepping and doomsday survival, the Make Ready to Survive videos are a true tutorial to help you and your family. Whether you live in the heart of the city, on the outskirts in a quiet neighborhood, or out on a farm, the Make Ready to Survive videos show you techniques that are critical for survival, review gear and supplies to have on hand, and all aspects of proper planning. Most importantly, the videos will bring you piece of mind.

The instructors in the series include former US Army Delta Operator Paul Howe, Dave Canterbury from the Pathfinder Self Reliance School, US Army Special Forces Green Beret Kyle Harth, disaster preparedness consultant and author Jim Cobb, and NE MacDougald, who started his career in Vietnam with the 519th Military Intelligence Bn (MACV), and today is an author and consultant.

The video series will debut both on DVD and HD streaming video in December with three titles from the series. Then additional titles will be released each month from January through April of 2015. More info on the survival series can be found on the Panteao website at: panteao.com/survive
