Survival Preparedness

– Easier than you think!
If you want to protect yourself, you have to consider your survival preparedness in backpacks .

 

 


It’s not a weekend here or there, it’s a 24/7 mindset.  Are you cut out to be a survivalist? Can you gather the gear, especially straps, and know-how together?
You need to be ready (and able) to protect your family from all comers. Whether they are coming through your front door or through a window won’t even matter. You need to be ready to defend yourself and those who you care about.




Survival is not just about stockpiling water.

It’s about a being ready for any assault – whether other people trying to break in, animals or natural disasters.

 

emergency survival preparednessThe end result is the same.

 

If you’re not prepared, you’re a target.

 

Stop worrying about just making sure you have enough water. That simply won’t cut it.

 

When I looked into some survival training, it amazed me how much misinformation is out there. As if you only need to worry if you are in an area where there’s a lot of snow – or tornadoes – or hurricanes – or earthquakes… Straps are one of the more critical items, you will use them for lots of things in the wilderness, in any general kind of emergency – whether you meetup with groups for the situation discussions, or to compare your checklist with your cache.

 

Every area of the country is sitting on a time bomb with a natural disaster just waiting to happen.


There is no way to know what kind of emergency might come up. You need to be prepared to bring solid information about the situation to the groups you are joining, along with a general checklist to make sure everyone is ready. Online groups, a prepper forum will help you fill in the blanks with useful tips, if you need help compiling your list. Prepping and placing the supplies into your cache locations will help you store the right things in the right places.

 

Don’t sit back and think that you’ll be ok. That it can’t happen to you.

 

It can.

 

The survival training I went through was a full-on challenge. Everything from hand-to-hand skills to being able to kill and cook wild game. (Well, it was only a rabbit, but at least I know I can do it – if I have to.) I have the peace of mind of knowing that I can do what has to be done and that I have a kit ready for a quick exit. In your backpack or kit, you should have a copy of your handbook or guide to keep you on task.

Do you?

If not, then NOW is the time! Learn the things that separate the victims from the survivalist.

 

Don’t wait until it’s too late.

 

Survival preparedness is a state of mind. It really is.

 

You can get there, I did.

    Good point, everyone should know if they can do what is necessary to provide for themselves…. The only way to know for sure is to do it.

      As a hunter, I don’t have a problem killing for food. But not everyone has that experience.

    What an excellent point. Being prepared involves more than stocking up on water and canned goods!

    I was in the Marines, so I know I can do whatever I have to do. Not everyone is so confident, but it is important to be sure that you can do what is critical.
