It finally happened! The s*** has hit the fan and now there is mass rioting and looting everywhere. It seems that the violence it’s heading your way. Waiting to face the impending doom is not smart and bugging out is your safest bet. However, you need to make sure that no one can follow you.
The emergency blanket is one of the items that one should consider adding in his lifesaving bug out bag. It may not look like much, but this thin piece of Mylar film can prove useful in an emergency situation and it may even save your life one day.
You don’t have to be a prepper or survivalist to have a good stash of supplies. Many of us gather food and water just because we want to be sure we have enough to make it in these uncertain times. Every time I look at my emergency supplies I can’t help but think that there is something I’m missing.
Having in your survival bag a versatile item like a tarp will come in handy during an emergency situation. It will help you gather water, camouflage your supplies and it will provide a good shelter in case nothing else is available. Improvising a basic tarp shelter can keep your head dry, it will help you conserve heat and it provides a sense of comfort and safety.
Regardless if you plan to hunker down or to bug out, knowing how to travel when a disaster hits your area is a major safety factor for you and your family. If you have a place to go to, you need to make sure you get there safely. Traveling from point A to point B in a world without laws can be difficult and we need to be prepared for it.
You wake up in the middle of the night and hear a crash sound outside. The lights are off and you stumble in the dark to find a working flashlight. Once you get outside you notice that a power outage hit your neighborhood, you check your phone but it’s dead too. That doesn’t make any sense, the street lamps are off and nothing seems to work. Then it hits you “It happened, an EMP attack happened and everything is fried”. It’s time to rely on your EMP attack survival plan and keep your family safe.
Once disaster strikes, every decision you make will have an effect on whether you survive or not. Making the right call will keep you and your loved ones alive. Failing to take immediate action and not using all the information you have, will drastically lower your chances of survival. When disaster strikes, you have to be ready and you have to know what to do.
Many people die in a flash flood because they make bad decisions, either by panicking or due to lack of knowledge. You may not know this but flooding is the most commonly occurring natural disaster you can experience. When a flood occurs you have to be prepared to act quickly and get your loved ones to safety.
We are used to have one or two cars per family and we can’t see us living without these useful vehicles. Your car will provide you with transportation to safety and it may even become your shelter during a disaster. Prepping your car could save lives and it’s critical to always have a well-prepared and well-maintained vehicle.
Knowing the value of available resources is important. If you have the option to choose where to build your off-grid home or bug-out location you should consider designing your environment to be as rich in resources and as safe as possible.
In April 2015 we counted 200 years since the explosion of the Tambora volcano, the most powerful volcanic eruption in recorded history. It isn’t something you’re going to find easily in our media, but just like many volcanologists out there, you need to wonder: “will we face a similar volcanic eruption in our lifetime?” Unfortunately the news are not good and it seems that nobody wants to discuss about what lies beneath the ground…
