According to recent studies made by World Bank, the coming crisis will be far worse than initially predicted…
In fact, new proof shows that it will not last for 3 to 6 months… but it could last for years!
Survival gear is important to be stored at home to help a household especially during emergency situations. Every family should have available a survival kit they can rely on, especially helpful during emergency cases. Survival kits must consist of essential supplies and tools that are prepared in advance and intended for emergencies like natural calamities from stormy weather to black outs. The ultimate survival gear must contain first aid kits, food and water, medicine, sleeping bags, flashlight, and more.
Everyone has heard of people who prepare for the end of the world as we know it and they are ready to go into the post-apocalyptic chapter of civilization, Mad Max style, with a gun in one hand and a survival kit in another. You know this is just not you and you know your family will never cooperate with you if you present survival with that image. However, you are not blind to the fact that disasters do happen and you want to be ready. While you are a skeptic about doomsday prophecies and are skeptical about the need for becoming the next Rambo, you want to make sure that you and your family survive any catastrophe that may come to your city. If you feel this applies to you, you might want to look at this urban survival guide for skeptics.
Survivalists may sound like doomsday prophets when they talk about TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) and some may call them paranoid when they discuss tips on urban survival. However, a comprehensive view of the past fifteen years shows that many disasters have befallen the civilized world. A partial list of these disasters includes the September 11 attack on the Twin Towers, Hurricane Katrina, tsunamis in Indonesia, Japan, Peru, Samoa and numerous flashfloods and earthquakes in various parts of the globe. Aside from these natural disasters, the global economic crisis is in itself considered a major disaster.
One thing you don’t want to be during the coming “crunch” — a polite word for “collapse” — is dependent on the system. The more you can take care of yourself, the better off you’ll be physically, financially, emotionally and even spiritually. Here are 20 ways to become more self-sufficient while you still can:
Emergencies of all sorts can happen at any moment and at any place. It doesn’t matter where you are, when emergency strikes, it hits by surprise. But, this doesn’t mean that you cannot be ready for it and do some emergency preparedness planning. The truth is, most things in life are like emergencies – they happen suddenly. And the best thing that you can do is to be ready to face it when it comes.
Winter weather can change quickly so equip your vehicles with
storm kits to keep you and your passengers comfortable and safe while
waiting for roadside assistance or weather conditions to clear.
Emergencies caused by tsunamis, acts of terrorism, pandemic diseases, and hurricanes are just some of the real threats that every nation prepare for with earnest interest and vigor. It is true that these can never be predicted. Some people may feel that it is impossible to prepare for something you can never hope to predict when to happen.
Experience is always the best teacher. As we have seen on the Internet and cable television, disasters unfold anywhere in the world and the damages in properties and lost lives in the past decade appeared too real compared to reading them from history books. The experiences speak of how modern technology made pivotal contributions to the efficiency by which rescue missions were undertaken and services were delivered. Yet, before help came, it is just the survivors and the raging crisis at hand. One lesson that is hard to forget: one can’t be too prepared during events like these. It underscores the importance of readiness and the value of having your own emergency preparedness kits and plans during times of crisis.
