Will an urban environment be the worst possible place to find yourself following a major disaster? There are many people who think so. But it’s very possible that a city might be the best bet for survival for many people.
The holidays are often a stressful time of year. But there is always something to be grateful for. De-stressing during the holidays will make it much more fun and memorable. Take some time to connect with friends and family heart to heart.
BOB stands for “bug out bag.” A BOB is a bag (usually a backpack) that is strategically packed with life-sustaining and/or lifesaving equipment that contains a minimum of a couple of days’ worth of supplies. Keep one on hand to help get you from point A to point B in an emergency.
At this point, everybody knows how important it is to stockpile food, water and other necessities for an emergency. I can’t imagine anyone saying, following a disaster, “If only someone had told me that I should prepare for something like this.” A few people are well-prepared, many people are somewhat prepared and most people aren’t prepared at all; but nobody can say they weren’t warned that they could be without these crucial items should a crisis occur.
On the other hand, there seems to be much less awareness of the need to have stockpiles of food, water and other items in at least two different places, preferably three. Even many preppers who have amassed serious amounts of bottled water, canned food, toiletries and a host of can openers, flashlights, batteries, radios, blankets, clothing, first-aid kits and weapons are putting all of their eggs in one basket if they keep everything at the same location.
Storing bulk foods that are dehydrated or freeze-dried is a very good idea. Storing dried foods in bulk will ensure that you have a stockpile of necessary food items just in case of a natural disaster, lean economic times, loss of a job or any other disruption to our normal routine.
On Nov. 13-14, America’s major electricity generating companies along with the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and government agencies in Canada and Mexico will conduct a drill to test system responses to cyberattacks and physical attacks on the North American electrical grid that cause its widespread failure.
We almost certainly face a black depression or a total collapse, and very few people are ready. Why? Most people are so accustomed to the easy life with everything at their fingertips that they cannot imagine a crash of the system leaving people desperate. It is much better to be prepared.
There are many reasons for stockpiling a three-month, six-month or one-year supply of food. For one thing, it’s a good investment. But the most important reason to store food is that it comes in very handy in a crisis of any kind.
Preparedness-minded individuals should approach prepping in a highly effective way to avoid pitfalls, bad decisions or apathy and maintain the ability to solve problems for themselves and their loved ones. These are nine habits that can make you a highly effective prepper.
What would you do if your water supply became contaminated? Natural disasters can interrupt the flow of clean water. Following a disaster, some people may not have access to food and water for days or weeks. You can live for days without food; but you must have clean, potable water, or you will dehydrate.
