about us


Sophos Survival was started with the goal to help EVERYONE become more prepared for “life’s adventures.”

Most likely, those “adventures” will include things like the need to administer basic first aid to one of your kids when they crash on their bike (we’ve all been there!).

Maybe you need to perform CPR or are the first on the scene of an accident.

Or perhaps something more serious happens – A natural disaster, someone breaks into your home, an active shooter scenario…

We are here to help you gear up, get the training you need, and BE READY for those “adventures.”

why choose us

preparedness is multi-faceted.
we've got you covered.


We strive to carry only the highest quality gear and products on the market. Our product lineup comes from the gear we use and trust ourselves. If we couldn't find it out there, we made our own.


Gear is important, but a ready mind is your most valuable tool. If you don't prepare for an emergency situation ahead of time, you will most likely freeze or freak out. Check out our training calendar for upcoming classes.


After you gear up and get trained, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. Regular experience creates muscle memory and that will kick in when you need it. After you practice, get more quality instruction. Repeat.

what does sophos mean?

Sophos is a Greek word which means “wisdom” and was originally used to describe expertise in a particular knowledge or craft. The reason we chose this is because our goal is to TEACH and INSTILL emergency preparedness, survival, and self-reliance as an attitude and way of life, not just sell a bunch of survival stuff. Of course, good quality gear and supplies are very important (and a big part of our business), but we believe a ready mind is your most valuable tool.

Here’s an example: Aircraft pilots spend a significant amount of time on emergency procedure training. They study these procedures to know WHAT to do in case of an emergency, and they study the aircraft systems to know what’s behind those procedures – basically HOW stuff works. Then they PRACTICE so that when something goes wrong, the procedures are automatic and they  can respond is calmly, wisely, and immediately.
