This achievement is for saving 15 survivors from Rais's men in Harran.

As travel through the map, you will frequently encounter random events as seen in the video below by a flashing blue circular marker (shows up on minimap).

These markers can mean a number of things and are not always for rescuing a survivor from a Rais's men. They may also be for a street fight with two enemies, a rescue from a zombie or a random shop to buy and sell items.

Please note: this particular event seems to show up A LOT less frequently in the second area, once you leave the slums (Thanks RellikGod for the suggestion). I have also found this, and have used the fast travel map in the tower to head back to the slums to continue work on this achievement.
This particular event also shows up a lot less frequently once the game is complete (thanks Bleach XBA and Icromatiickzz).

The counter appears to be glitchy as I have rescued 17 survivors and still says 73%. I have been checking each time I rescue and have not seen it go up since before I reached Old Tow. I would suggest trying to complete this before moving to Old Town.

For this achievement, we need to be rescuing a survivor from Rais's men. This random encounter can come in several forms. My video below shows me rescuing two survivors and being attacked by four of Rais's men. I have also encountered one survivor and three of Rais's men - this is much more common.

For those of you who have the following DLC, Warboy925 adds this helpful tip:
"You can also get this achievement in The Following......only difference is that I find its a lot easier!!

Just drive around and when you see a blue icon appear, if it is a rescue, they will say over the radio something like, "They are here to desecrate the altar, help me brothers!", or "The bandits are here, I need help"...........just know that the blue icons that indicate a rescue ALWAYS has a radio message asking for help!! And they are ALWAYS by an altar!

(Yes blue icon vendors and hunting tower zombie "rescues" have radio messages too, but it is easier to tell which event is which depending on the radio message")

Hunting Tower rescue (From Zombies) ALWAYS say "Hunting Stand", or "Hunting Tower" in the radio message, and vendors are pretty obvious with their message......"
Thanks for the tip!

- Use a gun! Using a gun makes this much easier as you can easily take down enemies at a distance. However, if you do not have one yet, see below for melee techniques.
-Take lots of medkits with you whenever you leave a safehouse. You never know when these random encounters will happen and it always pays to be stocked up in case you mess the fight up.
-Use your strongest weapon against Rais's men. They are very good at dodging and kicking.
-Dodge! These encounters are much easier if you are able to purchase the Dodge skill. It is the first skill you can purchase in the Agility Skill Tree. Use cn_RB to Dodge when the enemy is about to attack, and you should be able to get a few hits in before they recover.
-Kick! Often a kick using cn_LB can interrupt an enemy attack leaving him open for a counter attack. However, some attacks cannot be interrupted.
-Fight dirty. Often when you come across one survivor with three of Rais's thugs, there will be one sitting down. Always take him out first as you can easily take him out before he gets up, and before the others have a chance to attack. This instantly evens the odds to 2v1.
-There is usually at least one in the group who can sit back and throw knives at you, so try to take care of that guy early too

These is my own video I uploaded from my own gameplay.
