Although I always argue that the best survival tool you have is knowledge there are always tools that can help you as well.
Most people in this day and age live in urban areas and having the right survival preparedness gear can easily make the difference between surviving or not.
Just in case you need to evacuate your home you will always need a Bug Out Bag. Even if you stay in your home, you might be without power and any way to heat food.
I have a friend who couldn’t even open a can without power because she only has an electric can opener.
But what if your water supply was contaminated. Would you be able to find water to drink or would you have some stored in case of an emergency?
Water is also the most important supply to keep stored because most people could only last about three days without water.
What if the grocery stores were unable to get food delivered. Most have no more than a 3 day supply. And if you’ve ever gone into a store just before a big store you know how fast things can fly off the shelves.
Survival Preparedness Gear
Survival Preparedness Gear is anything that you would bring with you if you leave your home or that you would keep in your home in case of an urban disaster.
Make sure that you consider your needs and location when preparing your gear.
You need to think about things like:
- any meds that you might need
- emergency medicines in case of an accident
- shelter in case you need to leave your home
- what defense tactics or weapons you are going to use
- and don’t forget to have food and water for your pets as well
Thinking ahead and storing basics can make a huge difference in whether you are going to comfortably last out a disaster or have to rely on others.
