I know — food storage, survival planning, gathering survival supplies, survival skills — it all seems overwhelming. Every day there are headlines in the news that "should" motivate each of us to prepare as quickly as we can.
Survival planning isn't just for "the other guy." Adversity can happen to any of us. Unemployment, hurricane season, floods, storms that knock out power, and other disasters happen fairly often — somewhere in the world.
Store enough supplies to last at least two weeks (when evacuation is not required).
This should include:
Begin putting away enough supplies to last 3 - 6 months (staying where you are or moving to another location where you have stashed these supplies).
Store enough food and supplies to last 2+ years.
This is where your efforts grow exponentially. Preparing for a long term survival situation takes, not only money, but time. Yes, you should continue to add to your food storage too, but learn self reliance skills as you add food.
Numerous articles have stated that the entire world is only 3 days away from starvation - meaning, in 3 days after a disaster there would be no more food in the stores. This has actually happened in the recent past as disasters struck New York, Japan, Indonesia and other places.
Are you ready? Because if you hear it on the 6 o'clock news, it's already too late.
Besides adding to your own survival supplies, remember what great gifts freeze-dried food or other survival supplies will make to adult children, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors - everyone. There are even gifts for kids — light sticks, flashlights, freeze-dried ice cream and MORE!
How many hours do you spend in your car each week? In any crisis, an auto emergency kit could save lives or be a 'get home' bag in a grid-down situation.
Nuclear Attack - Too many countries currently have nuclear capabilities. Not one city in America has a plan in place if a nuclear bomb is detonated. We can change the survival rates by doing some commonsensical things.
Before writing a review, I wanted to see what they offered on their website, so I clicked on their link and read every page. I was impressed. They have done extensive testing of the many types of foods for storage for their own families. They were not impressed with what they found in other foods.
Power Outage - No phones. No lights. No running water. What would you do if the whole country went dark and you didn't know if or when the power would be coming back? What you need to know when the power goes out unexpectedly.
America's power grid is aging and Congress has known this for years. Reams of federal agency reports have been presented that confirm that if a man-made attack (cyber war, terrorists), a solar event, or weather, took down the electrical grid, thousands or even millions of Americans will die.
Learning how to prepare for a hurricane is mandatory if you live near a coast where tropical storms form, such as the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico areas.
Flood Preparedness - Floods are a natural disaster that can happen no matter where you live, but especially if you live in a low-lying area, near water, at the bottom of a hill/mountain, or downstream from a dam.
Evacuation planning is important so everyone in your family will know exactly what to do in case there's a fire, earthquake, flood, terrorist attack or other disaster.
Tactical pens are for writing just as other pens are. But when the word 'tactical' is used to describe anything, you can safely assume that it has other uses not associated with writing.
You'll never worry about a power outage again with the variety of ways available to cook your family a hot meal. Use highly efficient charcoal, wood chips and sticks, or propane to boil, grill, fry or bake using very little fuel. You can cook an entire meal with as little as 6 briquettes or a handful of sticks and pinecones.
