Think you can survive a disaster?


Your government does not think so.  In fact, they have predicted that over 80% of Americans are not prepared for any disaster or emergency.   


Are you one of those 80%?

Think about it.

  There are real benefits to being prepared.

By being prepared, we can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany not only disasters, but everyday situations that we do not expect.  Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado. We should be ready to evacuate our homes and take refuge in public shelters and know how to care for our basic medical needs. 

People also can reduce the impact of disasters, elevating a home or moving a home out of harm’s way, and securing items that could shake loose in an earthquake) and sometimes avoid the danger completely. No, we are not talking about building a remote bunker in the middle of no where, hording supplies, and waiting for Armageddon.  This is about being prepared for any situation that could be life threatening.  From natural to man made, from storms to losing your electricity for days.  Being prepared is the key concept here.

  Minimum Emergency for Traveling

 Whenever you drive, you have the potential of facing an emergency.  You vehicle breaks down, you have a flat tire, or you become stuck in snow or mud.  It is very simple and  inexpensive to prepare for this everyday emergency.  

A small rucksack in the trunk of your vehicle could save your life, or of your loved ones.

The need to prepare is real. 

Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property. 

If a disaster occurs in your community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will try to help you, but you need to be ready as well. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere. 

You should know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area—hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism. 
You should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation. Using this guide makes preparation practical, easy and inexpensive.

It just doesn't happen to the other guy.

The normalcy bias, or normality bias, refers to a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. This often results in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.

Losing Electrical Power

Weather, accidents, and storms can disrupt the electricity we are so used to having. Sometimes electricity flickers momentarily then comes back. Serious damage to power lines and the electrical grid can cause outages for days, or weeks. Safe Electricity has valuable information to keep you safe and comfortable during a power outage of any length.

 Anticipated disruptions include:

  1. Natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards, and severe thunderstorms, etc.
  2. A disaster brought about by the activities of man: chemical spills, release of radioactive materials, nuclear or conventional war.
  3. General collapse of society, resulting from the unavailability of electricity, fuel, food, and water.
  4. Monetary disruption or economic collapse, stemming from monetary manipulation, hyperinflation, deflation, and/or worldwide economic depression.
  5. A sudden Pandemic spreading through the global population.
  6. Even becoming snowbound due to a major blizzard, spending the night stuck in a ditch, or just losing your electricity.

The minimum you will need is a package of basic tools and supplies prepared in advance as an aid to survival in an emergency.

Survival kits, in a variety of sizes, contain supplies and tools to provide a person with basic shelter against the elements, help them keep warm, meet their health and first aid needs, provide food and water, signal to rescuers, and assist them in finding their way back to help. Supplies in a survival kit normally contain a knife (often a Swiss army knife or a multi-tool), matches, tinder, first aid kit, bandana, fish hooks, sewing kit, and an LED flashlight with batteries.

Civilians such as forestry workers, surveyors, or bush pilots, who work in remote locations or in regions with extreme climate conditions may also be equipped with survival kits. Disaster supplies are also kept on hand by those who live in areas prone to earthquakes or other natural disasters.


Why are printed maps are better than online maps?
Printed maps are color coded, making their differences better to read. The fact that they are printed on big paper means they are them easy to use, do not need to be powered up making them always available and are cost effective.
