The current disaster unfolding along the Gulf Coast is a jolting reminder that survival preparedness is something you should never put off. It’s easy to tell yourself that you’ll stock up on non-perishable food items, water and other basic necessities when you have the time and extra money sitting around — but for far too many Americans, too late comes too soon.
Harvey is winding down, leaving Texas residents to pick up the pieces. But this is only the beginning of what looks to be an extremely active hurricane season. Worse yet, while the national media shifted 24-7 focus to hurricane coverage (as it will certainly be forced to again in coming weeks), international stability has continued to quietly deteriorate.
The potential for danger to your life, financial security and family’s well-being is everywhere. That reality, of course, shouldn’t consume you… what a miserable life that would create.
But would it hurt to take some small steps to protect yourself and your loved ones against uncertainty? Of course not. The thought of the alternative — facing a real natural or man-made disaster totally unprepared — should cause much more heartburn than the idea of spending a few hours and a few dollars on a self-made insurance policy that could mean the difference between life and death.
Here are a few extremely valuable resources to help you get started today. The best part is that much of what you need, you probably already have on hand — it’s just a matter of situating your survival cache for quick access in the event of emergency. Other things can be picked up relatively cheaply. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
Finally, a printed copy of Bob Livingston’s How to Survive the Collapse of Civilization should have a place in every survival toolkit. It provides a compendium of the information above and a boatload of additional practical, actionable survival advice for all manner of disaster scenarios. Having the information in one place, in printed form is vital — because if you’ve ever had the misfortune of being involved in a mass disaster, you know that internet and cell phone connections will become overloaded or go offline altogether early on.
