Growing up as a child, we never had the fear of someone grabbing and taking us away from our family. Unfortunately the world has changed. Every day someone is taken from their home, school, place of work, or taken off the street against their will. In today's “lock the door” society, we have to be aware and proactive in our own survival.
Unfortunately, things will happen that are out of our control. Basic skills could save your families lives. Zip tie's are now increasingly being used to detain or control innocent people… and there are few things worse than the helplessness we feel when tied up or restrained.
Many people admit to having a great fear of being bound and abducted, or becoming an innocent victim in their own home as in the case of a burglary or home invasion.
Teaching your family basic skills like how to escape a zip tie restraint could be the difference between their survival and death at the hands of an abductor or invader.
The following video shows a common zip tie escape method. Most adults will possess the strength needed to break a zip tie using this technique.
If you are unable to break the zip tie with brute strength or your children are unable to break free from the zip ties, the shoe string technique can be used. This technique works with your hands restrained in front or behind your back.
Many times children can be taught survival skills as a game. Children are adaptable, they are capable of learning new skills. By making a game out of your practice sessions, most children will have a fun learning how to escape. A skill they may need later in an otherwise scary situation.
The one thing that is most important, practice, practice, practice. You do not want to be in a bad situation, and try to remember what you saw on a video once.
Here are a few more zip tie escape options…
We all think it can never happen to us. Unfortunately that is no longer true. Anyone can find themselves in the wrong place, at the wrong time on any given day. Nowadays, it's important proactive in your families survival.
You need to have a plan, so you know what to do if something happens to go wrong. Most of all, make sure you teach your family skills that will become second nature to them and instinctive if a bad situation occurs.
Until next time…
Take care and God bless
