Being unprepared is the biggest downfall of most people when it comes to surviving a large scale crisis. If you think nothing major is ever going to happen, you may be thinking differently when it is too late! Don’t say that someday you will get ready for the unknown, make it a priority to be ready today for anything.
There can be a very short window of time between what you are doing right now and when a disaster occurs. You aren’t going to have time to be able to reach out for supplies or to make a plan of action. You don’t want to end up in a panic because you aren’t sure what to do or because you know you lack skills or supplies.
Have the mindset that anything can happen, and know that you will be ready to face it head on. Take actions that allow you to feel safe, secure, and ready for the future no matter what it may bring your direction. Go over meeting locations, supply options, and more with your family and with friends that you consider allies.
You can be stronger as a team than individually. Don’t wait until something has occurred to find out who you can count on. Remember, your supplies will run out fast if you are helping those that weren’t prepared.
Here is a list of things that you should be ready for:
Government Martial Law
Hurricane (depending on where you live)
Tsunami (depending on where you live)
