Let’s Hope the Chinese Government is Reviewing the Russian Dam Disaster

Although it didn’t get much coverage in the global media the Russians had a huge Dam Disaster that killed 75 people, or at least we are told it was only 75 people. Why did this happen; probably due to the corruption in Russia, and the fact that they had a huge flooding event the week prior. Still, floods come and go just like drought periods do.

Prepare Your Home and Family For Natural Disaster – Important Tips to Remember

There are several things that individuals and families must prepare for, especially the ones that are not at all expected in the most usual and common circumstances like natural disasters and calamities. Making your home a calamity-resistant and safe dwelling place is one of the wisest investments you can ever venture into. How can you prepare your home and family to survive certain events that are beyond your control such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and the like?

Bug Out Exercise on a Budget

Every survival conscious family should perform some sort of practice exercise several times per year. This is actually the only way that you will know if you are weak in an area of preparedness. Bugging out before an event occurs is not only a wise decision but essential to ensure your families safety.

Firewise, an institution that promotes the education and prevention of wildfires, outlined these tips to help reduce the risk of wildfire damage in your home.

MRE Meals – Stock Up in Case of Emergency

If your husband was in the service during the 80s, you might be hard pressed to get him to try MRE meals! The MRE survival food of today is not only designed for emergencies but it tastes good as well! The best solution is to order a variety pack and bring it along as camping food. When your family discovers that freeze dried meals do not mean tasteless, they will wonder if maybe they should listen to Mom more often!

Backup Black Powder

Let’s be realistic here for a moment and understand an important point concerning our future survival. If we are not properly prepared ahead of time there are simply no way we will be ready in the event of an emergency. We must prepare now for any crisis which may befall us when the infrastructure begins to break down. The preparations that we make now may seem like an endless chore but it certainly beats feeling regretful in the end.

Bartering For Ammo and Weapons

I am a large supporter of having items that could be used for bartering in the event that the times get really bad and our infrastructure bottoms out. I believe some extra food would be advisable as would sufficient supplies of toilet paper and like products. However I find it difficult to even consider the thought of bartering ammo or weapons of any sort. Let’s face it, during the preparation stages I saved and purchased ammo to supply myself and my family for several years at best. While I may have sufficient quantities of ammunition to meet all my needs I would hesitate to supply such things to other people

Coping With Survival Stress

We are all feeling the bite from the economic changes which are taking place in every phase of our lives.

If you live in a hurricane-prone area, then it’s important to know how to prepare your shed for the bad weather these storms produce.

How to Cook and Eat MRE Meals

Originally, meals ready to eat (MRE) were designed as military rations by the U.S. army to feed their soldiers in operation and on the field. For a trained soldier, preparing and eating from an MRE pouch might be a no-brainer, but for the ordinary person, it might prove to be challenging.

The Pros and Cons of Civilian and Military MREs

Meals ready to eat are getting to be a very popular option for people wanting to stock up their emergency disaster kits. And why not? If it is good enough for the U.S. military to feed the soldiers in the field, it should be good enough for civilians as well. However, the problem is that military MREs aren’t available for commercial resale to the public. However, that hasn’t stopped cases of military MREs from appearing for sale online or in army surplus stores. Obviously, if there is a demand for the stuff, people will supply it.
