Minimal Survival Supplies
There are families who assume that if they keep two gallons of water in their basement they are equipped for a disaster. Then there are other people who know that a disaster today will require blast resistant doors, real survival supplies and a place to live through a crisis. So what are the essentials that you need to make up a survival kit? You should have one gallon of water per person per day, and should stock enough for a minimum of three days. You need at least, (preferably more), three days’ worth of food per person. These foods (if possible) should require no cooking or preparation, and little or no water. You need a well-stocked large first aid kit. Have a dining set for each person in the family, and a battery operated or wind-up radio and flashlight with extra batteries. So you can see this and much more is involved in a complete survival package, but these items are a great start. You can always purchase an emergency preparedness manual to learn more about what you can prepare for.
Do I Need Blast Resistant Doors?
A military attack in today’s world is not going to happen in the form of a manned attack. An enemy will more than likely drop a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon from a safe distance instead. It’s a frightening fact, and installing blast resistant doors on your safe rooms to survive modern day assaults is nothing short of common-sense. These occurrences are not over in minutes or hours. The effects of such weaponry can last for days, making emergency preparedness supplies a crucial part of your total protection. Don’t be caught by surprise. Prepare for the worst today, hope for the best, and act with intelligence.
Emergency Preparedness Supplies
One only needs to look back at news reports of Hurricane Katrina and other horrific disasters to see what happens to families unprepared when something unexpected happens. You have the control in your hands to make sure this doesn’t happen to you or the ones you love.
We recommend that you double your food and water supplies to allow for a minimum of one week’s provisions for your family. Make sure you have sanitary/hygiene products like moist towelettes and toilet paper. You will need clothing and jackets for each member of your family, as well as sufficient bedding. Also it is a good idea to have a whistle to call attention to your location if needed. Plan for an emergency carefully as you may realize your life just might depend on it.
