Who Packed Your Parachute?

The analogy of a parachute works perfectly in relation to your preparedness supplies because you want each to save your life in a time of need

In the first part of Jim’s “Law of The Parachute,” the parameters that must all be met for survival are: 1) You must have it before you need it, 2) You must have it with you when you need it, 3) You must really know how to use it, 4) You must actually use it, and 5) It must be of lifesaving quality.  Failure of any one of these will result in your death at the end of the plummet. Of these five, it’s easy to see that 1 – 4 are clearly in your hands, but who packed your parachute?  

This class presents the rest of the “Law of the Parachute” which is all about how to get a parachute of “lifesaving quality”:  
First the question, “How have you been choosing your parachutes?”  A list is given of the eight most common ways people choose a parachute.
Next, you’re given the “5-Key Parachute Questions” you must ask yourself and correctly answer.  
Then, the “Parachute Packer Qualifications” that must be met so you can know to trust a packer you are considering,
Followed by, “How to Properly Choose a Parachute” whereby you can know for certain that you have a parachute you can trust your life to.

So, up to this point, who’s packed you parachute and why?
