In any disaster scenario, your main task is to stay alive. If you manage to do this, you will be able to take care of the others.

We live in an uncertain world and with each passing day, more and more people decide to become survivalists and preppers.

Will, in my opinion, is strong determination from deep within a person. That’s exactly what you need to survive and thrive during a catastrophe.
