John Kochan

John Kochan is the literal son of a nuclear family. His father was a USAF command pilot flying B-52s on nuclear alert. “We weren’t preppers; we just bought stuff in bulk, had a big pantry, and went camping a lot.” He earned his Emergency Care Attendant certification while a senior in high school and his Emergency Medical Technician shortly after graduation. He has been a Volunteer Firefighter / EMT / Industrial HazMat Technician in one form or another since 1980, recently retiring as Assistant Chief of his local VFD. He has also been an assistant instructor at KR Training teaching firearms safety and self-defense classes since 1997, teaching everything from NRA basic classes to full-speed force-on-force role-playing scenarios. He also teaches on preparedness topics from Alternate Lighting and Power Sources to Chainsaw 101.
