Shelter building is an essential survival skill. Knowing how to create things like leanto’s and debris shelters can be a big help in a survival situation.
However, what can we really do to affect shelter when our homes are taken form us? Can we really prepare for sustaining true shelter?
When homes are taken from us by hurricanes and tornadoes, there is no quick, effective, insulated answers. Instead, we are left to fend for ourselves. That’s the harsh reality. Take recent hurricane recovery efforts for example.
Thanks to brave people who face down the crushed words that follow disasters like hurricane Michael, those people not only help but report. Unlike many big news corporations, we find out that all these months after hurricane Michael has passed through its still a mess down there. Its still a total disaster and the most terrible situation is the shelter situation.
There are actually families who are living under blue tarps! Their entire protection and their “home” is now a blue tarp. This comes from Bear Independent on YouTube if you don’t believe it to be true you can see it for yourself.
Its the dark reality of your home. Once its taken from you by a storm, you will be left to survive in any way that you can. That is the truth. We see it happen each year.
So, what can be done to help those who face true disaster? Its clear that we need options for quick up shelters that make a difference. Shelters that can be delivered, insulated and lived in will make all the difference in recovery. Without the basic needs of shelter being met, we should never mention the word recover in these disaster scarred areas.
While wilderness survival skills are great they just don’t stand up to the wrath of true natural disaster and we need an answer.
