How Critical is Food Storage in an Emergency?

Most hard and true survivalists tend to worry significantly about whether they have a sufficient supply of food stored up for a possibly emergency. To them their food supply is of paramount importance since its primary purpose is to take care of their family in the event of a crisis.

Apocalypse Type Survival Plans

You can easily find that some survivalist have no sort of survival plan what so ever. I recently spoke with several that are in this frame of mind. They readily state that there are several reasons behind their mad thinking but the most predominant is that they claim to be one of those people who would least likely be able to survive in any sort of apocalyptic crisis.

Be Safe – Be Aware of Gas Safety

It is important to remember that gas safety should always be kept as a number 1 issue whether in industrial or domestic situations. In the majority of properties a lot of people don’t know where to turn of their gas supply. You should know where the meter and emergency control valve is located!

Federal Budget Cuts and the Swine Flu Problem

There is no getting around the idea that our economy is hurting badly. Not only are the normal households trying to cut expenses and balance their budgets but the federal government is actively seeking ways to cut their costs as well. Many federally sponsored programs are on the verge of losing all or some of their urgently needed funding as our government tries desperately to sort out this financial nightmare

Show Some Spine in 2009 – Make That Survival Plan While There is Still Time

As Americans we are inherently optimistic, and yet, that is not always wise when it comes to having a family survival plan. For instance, recently the Swine Flu breakout in Mexico City shut that city down completely, a city of 20 million plus people stopped dead in its tracks. A state of emergency of epic proportions; these Swine Flu cases also started popping up in the United States, but luckily there were not the large scale deaths as there were in Mexico City.

Surviving Swine Flu Pandemic

Apparently, the Swine Flu Breakout of Spring 2009 did not luckily turn into the horrific pandemic that was predicted, but it could have, and thus, perhaps this was a test. Fortunately, the outbreak occurred in the Spring instead of flu season, but had it happened in fall or winter the results would have been far worse and perhaps it might have really taken off and killed 100,000s of people or more.

Hotels Can Become Hospitals For Mass Casualties

On 4/24/2009 I published an article about actions the military would have to take in the event the United States was struck with nuclear weapons. I argued, among other things, that the military would have to seize hotels and convert them into makeshift hospitals. This statement generated considerable interest on the part of readers.

How and What to Prepare in a DIY Flood-Survival Kit

Very few natural calamities can bring more desolation and waste than floods, which have the capability of cutting off your food and water supply, and deprive you of shelter and electricity. Floods occur in many areas of the country and if you live in a flood-prone area, you have to protect your household by preparing a well-supplied flood survival kit.

Preventing Animal Attacks

Thousands of animal attacks occur every year in the US. Ranging from small scratches to fatalities, these attacks could come from your neighbor’s dog or from a bear on a camping trip. Although some are more prone than others, any and every animal is capable of attacking. However, many of the attacks that occur could or should have been prevented.

Ready For a Natural Disaster

A 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck central Italy recently. This strong quake was actually the second to strike the country on in less than twenty-four fours.

The Ultimate Fire Safety Device

When evaluating the likelihood of installing fire escape ladders you are presented with two viable choices. You can install permanent fire escape steps to the outside of your home which has certain disadvantages. I would caution you greatly on this decision. Permanent steps are a sure invitation for burglars and others who may mean to harm you. In addition the initial cost is considerably more then using the portable rope ladder. The rope version is probably your best bet but you will have to instruct those who will use it in its proper operation.

The Definition of Survival Food

Continually I stress that everyone should have a survival kit made up and ready for any sort of emergency that Mother Nature or fellow man can toss our way. I continually relate how this kit should contain certain essential emergency supplies as well as a selection of survival foods.
