Disaster Preparedness for Families

By Kelly W Lonegan


Avoidance through emergency preparedness is still the most effective action to ensure safety in times of unforeseen emergencies and catastrophes. Earthquakes, storms, fire and other catastrophes could take place in a split second, in any kind of area. Right here are some emergency preparedness considerations to follow and carry out in your home for the safety of your household:

1. Before purchasing a residence or a structure, carry out a little study concerning the environment of the area. Is it lying near an active fault line? Is it prone to typhoon and extreme weather? Is the area likely to be swamped?

2. Upon selecting a spot, make sure to work with a reliable engineer to deal with the house. Additionally, make sure that the building has a number of entryways. This is a fundamental emergency preparedness policy so that in case of unforeseen emergencies - there will certainly always be more than one escape.

3. Talk about with your household a disaster preparedness strategy. Designate a spot to meet up with each other in case of an emergency scenario. It could be outside your home or elsewhere as long as it is safer. It has to be easy to access and understood to every party.

4. Conduct fire drills and evacuation strategies every now and then with your members to guarantee that everyone knows the best ways to follow the emergency preparedness strategy
5. Collaborate with the city government concerning evacuation drills and assistance centers in instance of a catastrophe in your area.

6. Discover the best ways to switch off the operation of some energies in your home such as gas, water and electric power. These products, when left open and subjected during emergency situations, could lead to a lot more threats like fire or even sudden surges.


Is a Bug Out Bag Necessary for a Prepper?

By Matthew Sgherzi

Is a bug out bag really necessary for a prepper?
The answer is: Yes!


Why should a prepper have a bug out bag? The reason preppers should start off their prepping journeys with a bug out bag verses stocking up on goods at home is because it is often far easier to purchase a bag and condense all of your gear into that bag. This also gives you, as a prepper, a better idea as to what each gear is for and why you should have it. Looking at your gear in this "condensed" way will help you see the bigger picture when you get to the point of preparing your home/locations.

Another reason for starting out with a bug out bag verses prepping your home is because if you're a new prepper, and you start prepping your home first, and something happens such as a fire or other disaster that forces you to leave everything behind, you will have almost nothing to grab before you leave to take with you (depending on how much time you have).

If you have a bug out bag first before prepping your home, you can at least grab your bug out bag in the event that something unforeseen takes your home and all of your prepping time and goods along with it.
