Learn How To Do More With Less
Most of us that live in urban areas rely on others for a lot of the things that we need to survive. Whether it is the grocery store to supply us with food or the utility company to supply our heat and light, we depend on others.
Rather than simply reading survival books from the comfort of your recliner in the living room of your home, get out and try the emergency supplies and tactics that are in your plan. You’ll quickly learn what does and doesn’t work.
Keep It Simple
The more complicated your emergency plan is and the fancier your survival gear is the more likely they are to fail when you need them the most.
Prepare For The Right Disasters
Not every disaster is likely to affect your area. Every location is going to have it’s own things that might happen so make sure that your plan and supplies reflect those needs. Also make sure that you take the different seasonal needs that you might run into.
Stay Or Go
You may not always be able to stay at your home base. Situations could arise that would require you to evacuate your home and head out so make sure that you have Grab and Go Kits for you and each member along with your family.
You also need to make sure that you have planned where you are going to go in case you do evacuate.
Practice Makes Perfect
You need to practice your emergency plan. Talk is cheap. Practice your emergency plan using only the materials that you have stored. Then modify what doesn’t work to make it better.
Rotate Your Supplies
Make sure that you rotate the things that are in your survival kits and stores.
