Most people try to learn from their mistakes. In fact, sometimes making mistakes is the only way to learn. But this is not so in an urban survival scenario. If you make the wrong mistake and die, you won’t get a chance to learn from it. So instead you’ll have to learn from the mistakes of others.
The hostile urban environment can be something to fear right now! With the civil distress and unrest consistently growing we are wading into unsafe waters. That doesn’t take into account the many different scenarios and heightened desperation that would come with a serious disaster. When a mass of people are desperate for food and water, they are likely to do anything. That is a terrifying reality.
To that end, Urban Survival Site compiled a list of common mistakes that have gotten people killed. There have been far too many cases where people had everything they needed to make it through a disaster but died anyway because they imagined themselves to be Rambo or didn’t take simple precautions with food and water.
It will be one heck of a transition for the average American to make. It’s a lot to bite off. Our world of incredible convenience and relative safety at all times would disappear. Once the police disband there will be no more law and urban survival will be the only rule.
Only understanding this new environment and preparing for it will allow you to survive it. We also have to be ready to get out of there. A solid bugout plan could be the very best urban survival precaution that one can take. Think about it!
Don’t be one of those people that other preppers learn from. Educate yourself, think about what you would do in every type of disaster, and don’t get yourself killed.
