What would you do if you were in a bank when it suddenly got held up? What would you do if you were randomly taken hostage while taking a stroll through the park? These are the types of worse case scenarios that are presented and detailed in Spike TV’s latest reality based show ‘Surviving Disaster’.
This genius television program is hosted by Cade Courtley from Boulder. Courtley is an ex-Navy SEAL who has found fame with his new television show ‘Surviving Disaster’ which airs it’s pilot episode on Tuesday, September 1st on the Spike TV Network. Using training tactics that he gained during his time as a Navy SEAL, Cade Courtley teaches viewers how to survive unthinkable situations if they ever find themselves caught in a jam.
Cade Courtley has a lot to say about his new show as you can see in an excerpt from an interview below:
Cade, this is a really interesting series, I would classify it as a documentary and found myself taking notes. Can you give me an overview of survival scenarios you cover for the season, after Hijacking?
CC: We deal with what could be called the “worst day of your life” from a Home Invasion, Fire, Nuclear Attack, Avalanche, Bio-Chemical Attack, Lost at Sea, Hurricane, Earthquake and my favorite – Mall Attack.
Obviously Navy SEALS must be peppered constantly with questions about your actual training. How long was the process to become a SEAL for you? From boot camp to battle?
CC: If you are incredibly lucky and make it through the training pipeline without getting injured, you can go from Day 1 of SEAL Training (BUD/S) to combat ready in about 30 months.
Or if you break your leg 3 times and get your skull fractured like I did, you can add at least an extra year to that. But it was worth it!
