Plot summary

Each episode features Cade Courtley with a group of people in the disaster situation. The disasters feature worst-case scenarios, with Courtley giving the advice on survival based on the situation, also giving tips to the audience on survival. This always includes interviews with experts and survivors of similar disasters. It is possible to describe the situation in the context of a different type of attack (ie, to be infected at different distances from a nuclear blast, or to be at a different location during a different invasion of the home country). In these cases, Courtley still participates as a member of both scenario groups simultaneously.
