I really can’t say it enough…
You need to be prepared at all times for a disaster to strike. Disasters are unpredictable and you don’t want to be caught off-guard when it comes to your survival.
Maybe the next disaster comes from mother nature — like the earthquake that just hit California. Or maybe it’s man made, by the hands of some cowardly ISIS terrorist.
Whatever the case, shouldn’t you have some form of “insurance?”
Isn’t it worth a few bucks, and an hour’s worth of your time to prepare?
In the best case scenario, you’ll never need to put your prep to work. But God forbid the worst happens — at least you’ll be prepared.
Here’s the #1 thing I suggest you do right away (don’t worry — it doesn’t cost a single penny to put this to work…)
First, take the time to sit down with your family and loves ones to come up with plans as to where everyone is going to meet.
This may sound too SIMPLE or …
This may not sound like something you will ever need but what if the worst does happen and you can’t get ahold of anyone?
When cell phone towers no longer work, when your phone and internet are down, how are you going to communicate with your family?
Don’t have a plan in place to make sure your family is going to be able to find their way to you? I didn’t think so.
Let them laugh or sneer all they want. But they will thank you when and if disaster strikes.
In today’s world of instant communication and electronics, no one ever thinks that they won’t be able to pick up their cell phone, hardline phone or sit down on their computer and write an Instant Message.
Disaster does strike and it can happen to you and your family. During natural disasters alone, electricity can be out for days or weeks. And ISIS could be targeting an attack on our nation’s infrastructure.
Who knows? And if it hits, then what?
There are millions of people who have not given this a second thought.
These are the type of people who think that electricity will always be there and nothing will ever happen.
In your family meeting, come up with plans for various scenarios in case you do happen to be split up when the disaster strikes.
Daytime: Daytime is the easiest scenario because of the abundant amount of light. It is easy to find your way around your neighborhood or your city. The easiest place for everyone to meet is at your home.
Because of the amount of people in a metropolitan area, it may take you some time to make your way home. Highways and subways will be jammed so it will probably take you longer. Be sure to make it mandatory that everyone stay put until everyone has made it to the designated place before anyone decides to strike out on their own.
Night Time: This scenario is a little trickier because there will no lights. Since most of the lights, subways, trains and other modes of transportation will have stopped working, you will be in a much more precarious scenario to make sure that everyone makes it safely to your designated spot. So think hard about this one.
Miscellaneous: There are other scenarios, for example, such as you are in one city and your child is away at college in the same state. What will you do? Where will they go? They will most likely want to find their way to you because they are scared or frightened and don’t know what to do.
Those who have prepared will survive.
Sit down and take a minute to think about what has been laid out above…
What if you don’t have a survival plan in place?
What will happen to your family?
They are going to be alone, not knowing what to do or how to find you.
If they do find you, how are you going to provide for their well-being?
Do you have enough food, water and other provisions to ensure their needs will be taken care of?
Preparing for survival is essential.
There is no doubt that at some point in your lifetime you will probably experience a disaster.
It is better to be prepared today than to wish you had been prepared yesterday.
