Survival - What you need to consider

Survival for many is a relatively easy day to day process of life with minor threats and rare extreams to cope with. Many people though live a challenging precarious life and face real dangers on a daily basis. As we have seen in recent times going from the first case to the second can happen without warning but it does not have to happen without some preparation. It is almost impossible to prepare when emergencies strike and yet so relatively easy to prepare when life is easy. Human nature of compacency and procratination can and does get in the way. Prepare now to improve your chances of surviving an emergency.

Food is one of the basics of life that we just cannot do without. Both physically and mentally we all need to know or hope that a meal will be available for us. Especially if we are used to a constant food supply, fasting can be a very difficult thing to do. Many people have come to rely on the state to service their food requirements and have little or no personal food storage. There are many reasons why we could have an interruption in the food supply chain. This may go on for days, weeks or longer. Hence we need to give careful consideration to survival food storage.

Things to consider about survival food storage:

  • Where to set up the food store?
  • How much food do we need to store?
  • What food to keep in it?
  • What other skills will come in useful?

Lets look at these in turn.

Disasters have all too often stuck with savage effect on modern society. Despite scientific progress we have been ill prepared to face the onslaught. To escape the effects of such emergencies is not just a matter of common sense or instinct. We need to understand the dangers, be aware of our options and take action to limit the consequences. In short we need a guide that will help us prepare for survival.

Why Prepare for What May Not Happen?

There are two main reasons we need to prepare now. Firstly, we are facing more extreme events that are often related to intense human activity that is upsetting the balance of nature. Secondly, we have at least in the affluent world become solely dependant on the state provision of the basics of life. We need to redress the balance back in our favor if we are to avert severe hardship to ourselves and our communities.
