There is a lot of information online about emergency preparedness and how to deal with various crisis scenarios. However, when it comes to dealing with survival sanitation, it seems that this subject is somehow sensitive and it’s not covered by many survival experts.
You never know what disaster can hit your area and how it will affect you. An earthquake, a tornado and even civil unrest will change the essential services in your area. You can do without food, without ammunition or your smartphone, but when the water runs out, you must have a backup plan. Spending effort on emergency water storage solutions will make sure you have enough water to outlast a crisis.
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 out 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.
Many people dream about having a vacation home somewhere nice just to get away from the rush of the modern world. If you are part of the preparedness and survival communities, you might as well have plans to have a second home. The difference is that we want something that protects us from the threats of today’s world, a bug out location or even better, an emergency bunker. If an emergency bunker is on your to-do list, following are the things you need to consider.
A massive power outage is a true nightmare and it takes weeks or months to wake up from. The earth has just been hit with a massive geomagnetic solar storm similar to the one from the Carrington Event of 1859. There are no lights, no Internet, no TV, no radio, nothing… Your closest source of light is your cell phone, but its battery will soon die…what then? How will you survive this?
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 preppers are stocking up on tampons and menstrual pads. They believe these items could come in handy when having to deal with a severe injury. Only a few of them acknowledge their mundane use, while others seem to ignore the reality of how a woman’s body works. No one talks about their essential monthly use and it’s like the period, moon time or menstruation doesn’t exist. If they ignore it, eventually it will go away. This article will make most guys feel uncomfortable and if you can’t handle it, it’s better to pass it on to the women in your life.
Bugging in can be defined as staying in your house and holding down the fort during an emergency situation. If you have everything you need in your home to survive there is no need to leave and head for a distant location. You will have to bug out only if there are substantial reasons to do so. Reasons that are usually a threat to you and your loved ones. Even though the trend is to bug out and there is a lot of literature dedicated to it, for some this isn’t an option. In fact, bugging in is usually the first choice for suburban and urban preppers when a crisis occurs. Since not everyone has the chance to go to the hills or get access to a bug out location (BOL) is better to know what to do to bug-in and survive.
