When disaster hits, self-reliance is the one thing you can count on.
If you know what to do in any given situation, it will remove fear and replace it with the skills you want to have.
Knowing what to do in the event of a disaster isn’t something you can learn and then set aside.
It’s something that you need to keep fresh in your mind.
The reason is that when disaster hits, the training steps you need to take that you learned a few years ago can be hard to recall in-depth.
By staying prepared, you’ll be ready to keep yourself and your family safe.
Knowing how to survive in any situation should become as natural to you as breathing.
Studies have shown that people who are unprepared in survival situations often give in to shock.
They freeze and don’t know what to do.
But if you’ve drilled until survival training is second nature to you, you’ll be able to act with confidence to deal with whatever was thrown at you.
What's the Best Kind of Survival Training?
Have a survival drill in place like you would a fire drill.
Everyone should know where to go and when.
You should have supplies lined up and already geared to go in backpacks so that when you need to bug out, you can.
In the event of a disaster such as a tornado or an earthquake and you can’t get to your supplies, you must have a backup plan in place.
You have to know survival training to the extent that you can make do in primitive situations.
Information and knowledge is the best kind of preparedness there is.
You want to know how to quickly set up shelter – whether it’s through using material you were able to bring with you or by using what you can find on the land.
You’ll want to know how to cook food and how to keep your family safe in the event you have to go off the grid.
Take Responsibility For Your Survival
Did you know that most households that rely on canned goods for food, can’t get that food open because they don’t have a manual can opener?
That's actually quite frightening, right?
Never rely on things like electric companies, supermarkets, and banks to enable you to meet your family’s needs.
Practice your escape routes and meet-up places.
Make sure that you know an alternative source of food, lighting, and warmth.
You should train how you’ll be able to communicate if the power is suddenly gone or mass communication is disrupted.
The Best Time to Learn is Yesterday, the Next Best is Today!
You need to know how to provide for your sanitation.
You need to know how to get a safe water supply available to you and your family.
You need to know how to be safe from natural threats as well as threats from people who would jeopardize your safety.
You can learn survival skills on your own or you can invest in training from a survival company.
Whichever one you choose to do, disaster preparedness skills are skills that should be continually honed so that when the time comes, you’ll know exactly what to do.
