When you concern yourself with disaster and the things it takes to be ready there are some simple standards you can use. With prepping it can be tough to focus on it all but this will boil it down to the very basics.
Inside and out you can harden your home for disaster.
- First Aid
If you can focus on those things you can weather any storm that comes your way. There are smaller issues within each of those but you are going to be able to deal with most things that come your way.
FOOD and WATER
Aside from having food to eat and water drink, stockpiles of these two things allow you to stay put and out of harms way in a disaster. You already have the best shelter your money can buy, that’s your home.
How you power your home after the lights go out is very important a 5500 watt portable generator can run for 8 hours with 5 gallons of gas. That is a huge help when dealing with a power outage.
Only to your abilities. While you don’t want to preform surgery in a disaster, you can treat a myriad of issues if you have a quality medical kit on hand. You might also want to invest in a medical book for disasters and austere times.
No matter how bad the disaster, the freaks come out and look to steal. They were running into evacuated homes during the wildfires in California. The looters and the criminals know no bounds and you need to be prepared for that, too.
The unsung hero of disaster preparedness is an evacuation. When things get too bad, its time to go. Lucky for you there many things you can do to be prepared to evacuate. The most important is to prepare a bag and a destination.
