The I.P.N. offers several special programs that can help a practitioner prepare for, respond to, recover from and remain self-reliant after disasters or other types of large-scale emergencies.
The first is called MAX-3, a three-step physical fitness/health system that can help prepare your body for the many different specific challenges that you may encounter during a disaster or emergency.
The second is called XET-7 “X”-treme Event Training®. This is a seven step “Life-Defense” program that not only shows you how to endure various types of crises, it can also provide you with methods that you can use to reduce their destructive impact and, in many cases, circumvent their dangers entirely.
The Ikhaya-Eco program was created for the specific purpose of developing practical solutions for your emergency and permanent shelter needs. This includes the improvised construction of geodesic domes, Superadobe homes, mini “ultra-low-cost” mini portable homes of the I.P.N.’s own design along with other innovative creations. it also includes an emergency food, water and even transportation component.
Why do you need these programs? The answer is simple …
For the most part, people perform their daily routines without thoughts of disasters or emergencies. Unfortunately, and usually when we least expect them, they strike. Lives are disrupted dramatically, and people are abruptly forced into extreme situations and conditions that they are usually not prepared to face. Events such as the destruction of New York City’s World Trade Center in 2001, the Indonesian Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the 2011 earthquake, Tsunami and nuclear emergency in Japan have shown us just how vulnerable our society is.
We must also gird ourselves to face the horrifying reality of terrorists utilizing mass casualty (biological & chemical) and weapons of mass destruction (Nuclear) against our major cities. An attack of this type would test and in most cases overwhelm responders & local and federal relief agencies. Terrorism is a small segment of a broad spectrum of threats that our world will face over the next few decades. One of the most potentially dangerous and difficult to combat is the threat of emerging diseases. The recent SARS, Avian Flu, Swine Flu scares are ominous warnings of future pandemics.
Climate changes brought about by global warming will significantly alter the migratory and reproductive patterns of the world’s insect (vector) and pest (rodent) populations. Land, air and sea transportation systems along with millions of travelers will move many of these insects and disease carrying pests into large cities. Eventually, they will spread deadly diseases such as Malaria, Dengue & Yellow Fever, Encephalitis, Hantavirus, and many others.
Climate changes will also produce floods, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes and many other extremely severe and highly destructive weather anomalies.
Technological emergencies will create other enormous problems. Large cities and small towns across America and around the world will experience blackouts, toxic waste spills & releases, communication systems disruptions transportation accidents, and water purification systems failures. Large oil spills will pollute our waterways and ocean destroying entire ecosystems. A large nuclear power plant accident can contaminate tens of thousands of miles of land and produce large numbers of radiation related injuries and casualties. These are only a few examples of the many different challenges ahead. When these emergencies appear in your area, local responders or even the federal government may not be able to reach or assist you. This is why you must be prepared to help yourself.
