FEAR?

Fear
This Amazing Report Shows You How Overcoming Fear Is As Simple As Using A Simple Mindset and Technique, Freeing You To Live More Completely Than Ever Before! Irrational fear leads to irrational behavior which can all be avoided if you know how to. I suggest learning.

What do you fear? What scares you more than anything else? What shakes your foundation down to the bone? Do you know why it scares you? Have you rationalized your fear or simply justified it? Have you ever wondered about its cause? Do you know why this fear terrifies you like it does? Is this fear that’s been instilled in you something to be anxious about or should you be concerned about or is it something to be stressed about it?  Is it something to worry about, or is it something to dwell on and make a phobia out of, or is it something to be rationally afraid of, or is it an irrational phobia or, or is it a downright terror? Does this fear become a Phobia because of its tendency to linger? Is that healthy? Is any of it healthy?

When does your anxiety become a concern?  When does your concern become stress? When does your stress become a worry? When does your worry become rational fear? When does it become an irrational fear? When does it become a phobia? When does it become downright terror? When does it become a horror? Or when do you make it a horror?

Can You Abate Fear?

Can your fear be abated? Or do you let it eat at you? With our current President, abating it is difficult at the least, improbable at the mean, and impossible at the norm to overcome. If you let it eat at you, have you tried to rationalize it? Or do you simply justify it? Are you justifications valid? Or are they manufactured by an overactive imagination? What would happen if you did abate your fear? Will it change any outcome? Will it change your attitude? Will that have an effect on your hormones? You know that fear affects your hormones, don’t you? Do you know what this fear does to your body chemistry? Do you know how it changes your hormones? Do you know how those hormones affect your body? Do you know how those hormones affect your brain? Do you know how those hormones affect your behavior and actions? Do you know how those hormones affect your decisions or reasoning? Do you know how those hormones affect your perceptions? Do you know how those hormones affect your judgment?

What do you do with a concern? What do you do when it becomes stress? What do you do when it becomes a worry? What do you do when it becomes a rational fear? What do you do when it becomes an irrational fear? What do you do when it becomes a phobia? I define a phobia as a fear that’s become an obsession. What do you do when it becomes downright terror? Do you let it overtake you or do you try to control it? Do you realize that what you fear may fear you more? Do you realize that sometimes, fear is the only thing you need to fear? Do you realize that if you can’t do anything about, there’s no point in fearing it?

What do you blame for the rampant expression of fear these days? Why do you blame that? Who do you blame for it? Why do you blame them? Do you have to listen to this rampant expression of fear? Does it make you angry? Why do you think it’s promoted like it is? Is it to make you angry? Is to make you afraid? You do know that fear and anger go together, don’t you? Did you know that they trigger the same hormones in your body? Did you know that these hormones do long-term damage to your body? If long-term stress will damage your body, what does long-term worry or rational fear do to it? Do you allow this fear to control you? Or do you control it? Has it been used on you? For what purpose was it used? Did you approve of it? Do you trust people who use fear as a tool? Have you used it as a tool? If terrorists use it as a tool, what separates you from a terrorist?

Can you do or say anything about the spreading of fear? What effect do you think that would have? Would it be positive or negative? Who would benefit? Who would hurt? Do news agencies have to continue to spread fear to convey their message? Does that make them purveyors of fear? What do those who chose to pursue this have to gain? What is their motivation?

Should all wrongs be avenged?

If you take action, do you realize that whatever action you take because of your fear, will happen back to you? Who benefits from your actions? Are you aware of how history will view you, for taking this action? Are your actions for personal gain? Are your actions for political gain? Are your actions for religious gain? If your actions are for religious gain, do you think your actions will canonize you in your religion? Are you one of those who has visions of grandeur? Is that why you take your action?

Do you take action against others because of fear? Is this fear rational or irrational? Or is it just a worry or something to stress about? Are your actions for vengeance? Is your vengeance justified? What justifies it? Do you fear the consequences your actions will bring? Have you been able to put yourself in the other’s shoes, to see and feel what they see and feel? Do you act because you have to or because you want to? Is your action a reaction? If so, what is it you’re reacting to? What is it that validates your actions or reactions? Why does that validate your actions and reactions? Are those validations for personal, political or religious purposes or gains? Who benefits and who does it harm? In what ways are others aided, hampered or harmed by your fear? How are you aided, hampered or harmed by your fear?

When you decide to take action, who are you going to take action against? Why that person or entity? What will be the long-term consequences? What will be the short-term consequences? Who will that effect? Do you think about these things when you feel any of these fears? Do you think that other people do? Do you think that other people should consider these things when appraising their fear?

Do you use fear as a tool, yourself? If so, what separates you from a terrorist? Don’t you both use fear as a tool to achieve your goals? Is it the degree that you use fear that differentiates you from a terrorist? At what point does your application of fear, that’s being used for personal or political gain become a terror and when do you become a terrorist? Isn’t one man’s terrorist another man’s revolutionist? Are certain actions necessary or just threats needed to be considered terrorism?

Spreading fear is a definition of terrorism.

Does provoking fear, create anger? What happens to your emotions when you’re scared? What kind of fear provokes the worst anger? Is anger an emotion that should be experienced while making decisions about the nation that will affect the world? Does a leader who provokes fear in all, make a better leader? Should or could that leader listen to dissension about his leading without provoking fear? If he/she can’t, is that an indication of what kind of leading, they’ll do? The ineptness of regretless is exposing its ugly head when this President of ineptness makes us regret his stead.

If we’re to conquer terrorism, don’t we have to conquer fear? If we’re to conquer it, can’t we keep creating it in our newscasts simply for the sake of bringing in and keeping viewers for bigger ratings? What newscast in your opinion spreads the most fear? Which one spreads the least? Is their purpose to seek greater ratings only, or do they have political motivations for using fear as a tool? What differentiates them from terrorists?

Newscasts always have to incite a little fear to bring the viewer in and then again right before they go to commercial to bring the viewer back after the commercial break. Otherwise, they’ll lose their viewer during the commercial. In doing this, they’re creating fear where none exists, simply to retain their viewer’s attention. This is where the many of unnecessary fears start, many times. They’re blown out of proportion to gain viewership and when other newscasts pick up on it because of the interest it peaked, they often become full blown phobias.

Too often, it seems, that fear is thrust upon us for personal or political gain. Politicians use it to command millions of ignorant people to do what they would not ordinarily do when they’re not in fear. Fear makes you do crazy things sometimes, simply because they seem sensible. It can’t allow you to be sensible. Fear itself is often irrational. How can anything irrational lead to sensible acts?

Usually, it’s simply fear of the unknown. Even our worst fear, fear of death is nothing more than fear of the unknown. When one doesn’t know what lies around the corner, hesitation, then trepidation tend to arise. Of course, war zones are far worse than city streets, but the danger exists in both. If it’s a corner we’re familiar with the fear is less, simply because we know what’s there.

When someone asks me, what scares me? I say people who are afraid. I’m scared of people who run around being afraid of what they’re told to fear when it’s the fear itself that they should fear. Wasn’t it FDR who said in his inaugural speech “fear is the only thing we have to fear”? He was trying to thwart a run on the banks in the midst of the great depression, but it applies more today than it did during the depression. Can you see that the simple expression of fear validates terrorist’s actions because that’s their goal? Can you see where this forces terrorists to continue their practice of terrorism, simply because it works? Is it that hard to understand that if a tactic doesn’t work, you change it? Is it then hard to understand that if a tactic works you continue it? Doesn’t it reason, to not allow a tactic to work to make it impotent? Doesn’t it make sense to not allow fear to cloud the judgment? Fear drives people to do crazy things that they would never do if the fear never existed. Rationality exits the room when fear enters. It’s been said that fear is a disease that you can either control or it controls you. Which would you prefer? If you let it control you, when do you become a slave to your fear? Is that freedom? Can you truly be free while being afraid?

When attacked by irrational fear, all reasonable thinking goes right out the door with it leaving all those in fear, subject to the control of their emotions, which puts them in direct control of their hormones. Fear makes us all do things we’d rather not do when we not afraid. Fear conjures hormones that influence our behavior in ways that many times are detrimental not only to ourselves but to others in our home or community. Yet, there are some entities around the world who believe that spreading fear is the best way to promote their agenda.

More often than not, fear manifests itself in anger, so as to appear not afraid. We all know how rationally we think when we’re angry. This is what makes fear so dangerous; its propensity to become anger, and when it does that, the damage it manifests is too often, deadly.

Those who enjoy this kind of behavior are nothing more than bullies. I can remember dealing with them in grade school. Something I learned in grade school is that you don’t bow do bullies. Once people start expressing fear the bully know that his tactics are working.

This makes me wonder about all who use fear to achieve their goals. Is anyone who uses fear to achieve their goals a terrorist? If so, what does that make our Republican Party? They’re experts at using fear to achieve their goals. They’ve taught the world how to use fear to achieve unreachable goals. This makes me wonder; if a political party is so willing to use fear to achieve its goals, does that mean that they’ll use terrorism also? Isn’t terrorism the enemy? Doesn’t that make fear the enemy? Doesn’t that mean that those who use fear to achieve their goals are the real terrorists, enemies to American ideals?

To avoid fear yourself, you must avoid hunger, as hunger is the basis of all lower emotions and fear is the lowest next to death. To avoid hunger, you need to end your hunger cycle. The best way to end your hunger cycle can be found in Fighting Hunger Fight Terrorism Also. If you’re serious about killing your hunger cycle, your primary driver of fear, read It’s Time for the Ultimate Cure.

The Essential Hurricane Emergency Survival Kit and Emergency Preparedness Kit Necessities

Maintaining a constant state of awareness is always the best policy when it comes to your safety. Natural disasters can occur at any time, and you need to be prepared for that. However, in order to react to a threat, you need the proper tools to combat the situation. One of the most important tools to have in your emergency survival kit is water. Water ensures your longevity by providing proper hydration for you and your family.

First aid kits are absolutely mandatory. They provide many versatile uses for the different situations that you may face. The multitude of useful items in the first aid kit is what makes it so crucial to have.

Proper gloves, sterile dressings, and antibiotics are capable of providing temporary relief until you are able to receive full medical treatment.

Essential Food Survival

Upon entering into a natural disaster, you need to have the proper amount of food prepared for you and your family. Canned foods and other durable goods are essential for your survival. Foods that are low in sodium, as well as shelf-stable, are ideal for your emergency survival kit. If you have food in your refrigerator that you are able to eat, keep in mind that those foods should be consumed within four hours. If you eat them after that, you are risking the overall health of your family

Finding the appropriate survival kit essentials is something that should receive the highest priority. Keeping track of local weather as well as any regional threats can prove vital to ensuring your survival. Keeping a radio allows you to track local reports of any threats coming your way.

Unfortunately, many people are not ready when disaster strikes. Too many people are caught in the middle of a disaster without the proper supplies and tools. Whether you are anticipating a natural disaster or recovering from one, now is the time to start gathering together your emergency preparedness essentials.

In this world, these days, there is no particular time for the disasters to strike. The disaster survival kit is the best opportunity through which everyone and their family is afforded the opportunity to stay safe from natural hazards. Today’s  emergency kit has been designed from lighter weight, higher quality material, and involves clothing, first aid supplies, water, bedding, and some tools that are very necessary to survive for a long period.

The disaster survival kit gives you the best chance you have through which you can stay safe from the natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes(Sandy), wildfires, tornadoes, and keep in mind man made disasters like house fires, flooding from dam bursts, terrorist attacks, and God forbid, nuclear devastation whether it be from fallout or meltdown.

You can find disaster survival kits in several different varieties. When deciding on your survival kit for your family, the very first thing you  should consider are your needs. What are the first things you’ll be reaching for when you’re prohibited from going home or worse yet, you home is no longer there.

Put yourself in that situation for a minute and think of what you’re going to need. You know that you’re going to need water. Are you going to need Food? What about medicine? Shelter? Clothing? Blankets? Basic tools? What you need first is a plan of action. A plan of action to take effect whenever disaster strides. Everyone in your family should know this plan of action so everyone’s on the same page when it happens.

Both you and I know that nobody knows when disaster is going to strike. Natural or manmade disasters can happen at any time. You need to have enough basic provisions handy and ready to go should the need ever arise. Enough water, food, medicine, etc (this is where your list goes) to last for at least 3 days. Experts claim that this is a critical period everyone should be prepared for because most people are accounted for within that 3 day period in a majority of cases.

The emergency survival kit is a type of the disaster preparation. The kits are stored anywhere and automobile, office & home are places that you would like to keep the kit. The kits must have basic items to help survival with fire, shelter, food, water, as well as first aid. Flashlights, water, non- perishable food, matches, as well as tools are good gear.

The US government’s Fema website provides a list of in-home emergency kit items. The list focuses on the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and materials to maintain body warmth. The recommended basic emergency kit items include:

Hurricane

For hurricanes, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recommends that the ‘disaster bag‘ include:

  • A flashlight with spare batteries and
  • A battery operated portable radio (and spare batteries);
  • A battery operated NOAA weather radio (and spare batteries);
  • A “Self Powered Radio” and a “Self Powered Flashlight”. One, “Eton” model has the Weather Band and it is “self powered”. Some of these will keep your cell phone charged
  • First aid kit and manual;
  • Prescription medicines (be sure to refill them once they expire);
  • Cash and a credit card;
  • A cell phone with a fully charged spare battery;
  • Spare keys;
  • High energy non-perishable food;
  • One warm blanket or sleeping bag per person;
  • Special items for infant, elderly or disabled family members;
  • Change of clothing.

What goes in your kit depends entirely on your needs and the needs of your family. This is why you need to sit down and write out lists and a plan. Make  lists for the different types of disasters you might be caught in and make your kit(s) according to your list(s) . For each type of disaster plan your emergency response to that type of disaster. Prioritize. Make your lists according to what’s most important and what going to be needed more. Follow the suggestions above. Add on your own necessities and make sure they’re in your kit.

The thing is, you’ve got to do this if you haven’t already. You can’t wait until it’s too late. You’ve already taken the first step toward aiding your survival by reading this far. It’s up to you to follow through. You need to talk about this with family, & get them involved. Emergency preparedness for any disaster is vital to your family’s health and well being and should never be shrugged off. The more survival knowledge you can acquire, the better.

Emergency Survival Kit

Emergency Survival Kit

There are many different types of emergency kits available to the general public. In fact, emergency preparedness is such a general term that it really doesn’t even give a clear picture of what any particular individual kit is actually for. Is an emergency kit a first aid kit, or is it more like a wilderness survival kit? These are definitely different things, and depending on which particular one you are looking at buying, an emergency survival kit could actually be either one.

Your Best Bug-Out Bag

Emergency survival kits may be your last resort.

A truly excellent emergency survival kit is one that is designed for a general emergency preparedness as well as first aid. There should be some kind of a signal, like a small whistle. Because three blasts on a good whistle can be heard from a very long distance and that is the international signal for help.

In a wilderness emergency survival kit, there should also be material for starting a fire. This isn’t just waterproof matches or a flint and steel, but should also include something like loose cotton or some type of fire starter that is going to make starting a fire much easier. Putting a wad of Vaseline inside the cotton ball works excellent for a fire starter. They start up fast and burn for a long time.

Emergency survival kits are well-known Lifesavers

A Home 72 hour home emergency survival kit is important because home is where you and your family spend most of the time and safety and security are what home is all about. It’s home where your family is and they’re the very first people you would want to be safe should a disaster arise. The emergency survival kit found at home is usually weatherproof and in durable containers. It should also be portable so it can readily be carried to any parts of the house. It should contain enough food to feed a family of two, three or four for up to 3 days.

There are many other materials that should be put into a quality emergency survival kit, depending on your needs, where you live, the type of emergencies that can happen where you live, and any special need that you require, but these, listed above, are a good starting base for any good emergency survival kit.

Emergency Preparedness For Survival – Is Your Sanitation Preparation Up To Standard?

Emergency Preparedness For Survival –

Is Your Sanitation Preparation Up To Standard?

If I were to ask you to identify the most significant medical breakthrough in the past 150 years, how would you answer?

For most of us, we immediately think of high-profile advances in medicine, such as the discovery of penicillin and antibiotics, or the invention of the X-ray. The elimination of major diseases such as smallpox, plague, and others, or the incredible life-saving virtues of automatic defibrillators, pacemakers, implants,  and so on are just as important.

In fact, if you were to search ‘Nobel Prize Winning Medical Advances’ you will find a host of incredible achievements, all that have improved longevity and quality of life. And yet, none of them win the prize for being the most significant medical advances of the past 150 years. The British Medical Journal recently surveyed more than 11,000 readers, mostly physicians, and asked them the exact same question I just asked you: What was their answer to the most significant medical breakthrough in the past 150 years? In one word: Sanitation

Detail of little girl washing her hands emergency survival preparedness
Have You Become Antibiotic Resistant?

Perhaps the Indianapolis Star said it best, “How can it be that seemingly mundane, homely sanitation — including sewage, reliable clean water & decent housing — could possibly earn more votes than Nobel Prize-winning advances? Because the best measure of a medical advance is not its complexity, but what it does for the length and quality of our lives.”

hand with glove is cleaning hospital equipment emergency survival preparedness
How Clean is Your Food?

Proper sanitation eliminated deadly diseases such as cholera and infection and paved the way for the creation of a large and sophisticated network of agencies and infrastructure that have revolutionized our lives. Today we simply turn on the faucet and we have water to drink or push a lever on the commode and flush our waste. Today we benefit from a public health system that keeps a constant watch to ensure that our sanitation needs are met.

But what if I were to remove all these conveniences. No running water. No flushing toilets. No agencies, institutions or infrastructure for you to rely upon for sanitation services. What would your life look like?

The hidden danger in natural and man-made disasters is not just in the actual event, (which is usually what gets all the news), but in the aftermath of that event. The most significant of these consequences is a disruption in sanitation services, consequences that transport us back to a time when lack of sanitation was a leading cause of disease and death. Don’t take my opinion on it, believe the 11,000 readers of the British Medical Journal.

How should a reasonable person prepare for a disruption in the provision that service? Here are three things you should be considering to prepare for events of a catastrophic nature, like this:

1) Clean Water. You must have clean water for drinking, washing, and bathing, during a prolonged disruption in infrastructure. Most experts agree that the average person requires two gallons a day of water for cleaning and drinking. This includes water for washing as well as removing waste, (don’t forget that most toilets require 3 gallons to flush). We recommend that you keep a minimum of 7 days water storage for your family, (7 days times 2 gallons times the number of people in your family). A 30-day supply is even better.

2) Emergency Preparedness Kit. Individuals, families, and businesses should keep Emergency Preparedness Kits and Disaster Survival Equipment on hand that includes the necessary sanitation, hygiene, and survival tools and equipment to help you maintain a safe quality of living should you be required to live ‘off the grid’ for an extended period of time. Most standard Emergency Preparedness Kits include toilets, toilet bags, antibacterial gels, sanitation wipes, soaps and other sanitation/hygiene necessities.

3) Non-perishable Food. Keep in mind, a component of proper sanitation and hygiene is food that does not spoil and expose us to the risk of deadly food-borne diseases. The best foods for long-term storage and emergency preparedness are those that are ‘ready to eat’ and do not require refrigeration, such as dehydrated foods, military Meals Ready To Eat, canned meats, power bars, etc. As before, we recommend a minimum 7 day supply of nutritious, healthy, high protein foods in your supply.

Remember, the simplest explanation is almost always the best. It wasn’t the incredibly complex medical advances that won the day, it was simple sanitation and hygiene, two things that are well within your control and ability to prepare for.

Prepare yourself for your ultimate cure, by learning the ultimate ruse on your health right now.

How To Make A 72 Hour Survival Kit For Emergency Preparedness

There’s no dispute that emergencies happen at the most unexpected time; which is why having a 72-hour emergency survival kit is critical. Emergencies and disasters usually surprise you and catch you off-guard. There have been far too many deaths attributed to disasters simply because these people were not prepared. Our goal is to help you prepare for any catastrophic event that might befall you.

How Safe is Your Food?

When disaster strikes, there are quite often, government organizations and agencies that are there to provide assistance to those people hit by said disaster or emergency. They might be able to show right away and they might not. Might, in this case, is the operable word. Government assistance is really only a possibility of when and how much assistance they’ll provide. This is why we encourage you to keep a 72-hour backpack with enough provisions for each family member.

Many times during a disaster or more often than not, after a disaster, help might not be able to come quick enough for several reasons. Although most of these reasons are obvious, many aren’t. Besides the fact that most government agencies are going to be overwhelmed, roads may be clogged with traffic, (if they’re even there anymore), or they could be flooded, blocked by landslides or so torn up that any help that is going to come is inevitably going to be delayed. If you have to depend on helicopters to bring you aid, your wait may be even longer as there are always fewer of those to disperse the aid. Having a 72 hour emergency survival kit is one of the key elements for surviving a disaster while waiting for help from other agencies and groups.

Your Unspoilable Food!

Always being prepared for whatever emergencies that could happen, can be a very critical practice for saving lives. This is why, every family should have a 2, 3, or 4 person kit in their home (depending on the size of their family), and one in their car’s trunk. It’s wise to also keep one in your office in case you’re separated from your home and family. I can’t say how important it is to always be prepared. This is something every old boy scout already knows. We should all take this scout’s motto to heart and internalize it as it could be one of the wisest mottoes’ that any organized group has ever had, Be Prepared.

A Home 72 hour emergency home survival kit is important because home is where you and your family spend most of the time and safety and security are what home is all about. It’s home where your family is and they’re the very first people you would want to be safe should a disaster arise. The survival kits found at home are usually weatherproof and in durable containers. It should also be portable so it can readily be carried to any parts of the house. It should contain enough food to feed a family of two, three or four for up to 3 days.

Car kits, on the other hand, are always a good idea even if you are just doing a short commute to work. It is advisable that your car always have a 72 hour emergency survival kit handy because of the nature of emergencies, they always happen at unexpected times. Emergencies like snowstorms, floods, minor car crashes, engine breakdowns, loss of gas, etc can come to the driver anytime. Survival kits for the car are usually backpacks that have enough food and water that is easy to store, first aid kits, flashlights and other necessities.

Many people recommend that schools have 72-hour emergency survival kits in case of an emergency. You always want your children to be safe, especially when they are in school. During emergencies, schools can go on a lockdown, which is why it is important that the school is equipped with the proper emergency provisions.

Most people who go to their jobs are stuck in the office almost every day. When emergencies happen, there are great chances that people will find themselves in their office making the importance of 72-hour emergency survival kits important where you work, as it’s just as easy to get stuck in your office as it is at home.

How to Prepare Your Emergency Survival Kit

Now that you have seen the importance of a 72 emergency kit, it is time to know how to prepare the right 72-hour survival kit. This kit may include different essential things but the main idea is that you are prepared. There are key components that should be present in any 72-hour emergency kit like medical items, food & water, clothing and blankets, basic tools like a Swiss Army Pocket Knife, and other essential items in a 72-hour backpack.

But here are some of the items that you would want your 1 person kit to have.

1. You need to have an easy-to-store backpack.

2. Water is essential so you would want to have at least 2 liters of it that you can easily carry.

3. Food is important for survival so you must not forget having canned or prepackaged food in your kit, like MREs. All pre-made survival kits already have enough food and water for two, three, or four people. And don’t forget to pack a can opener.

4. You can also have emergency snack bars which are high in calories. This will help you sustain yourself and your family.

5. Try to also have a multipurpose tool like a Swiss Army Pocket Knife.

6. If you can get waterproof matches are a good thing to have if you’re stuck in the wilderness and it’s raining. Or if you prefer a lighter, that will also work.

7. A lot of people also like to have glow sticks with them in case the batteries are dead in their flashlight.

8. Clothing and blankets are also necessary so have some set aside for your kit.

9. First aid kit should not be dismissed. Have some bandages and some common medicines handy in your first aid kit.
These are just a few of the necessities that you’ll need for your 72-hour emergency survival kit. There many other necessities, depending on your needs and the the environment that you live in that you can include in a 72 hour emergency kit to ensure that you have the right 72 hour bag contents, so review your needs the types of emergencies that usually hit your area and make sure that your emergency survival kit is appropriate for your circumstances.

Emergency Survival Essentials For Emergency Survival Preparedness: Your Pyramid For Survival

Emergency Survival Essentials For Emergency Survival Preparedness: Your Pyramid For Survival

Emergency survival preparedness is not just essential, but one that everyone and their family should be engaged in. In order to make it an effective pursuit, though, it shouldn’t be performed haphazardly.

Emergencies Demand Preparation. Are You Ready for Anything?

Many people start out with good intentions but are misguided in their preparedness and food storage activities. They have a great goal in mind (i.e., being ready for the worst should a disaster or emergency occur), with no clear idea of how to construct a survival kit, their efforts often betray their intentions.

Emergencies Demand Preparation Will Your Be When the Time Comes?

After they have randomly accumulated some of the necessities they think they need, they’re not then sure if they have everything they need, or if they have allocated their resources properly. Of course, anything is better than nothing, but there should be priority lists of what’s needed for supplies, equipment and what to do as well as what not to do.

This should begin with preparation for a short-term disaster survival scenario all the way through to a “doomsday” predicament. You can’t prepare for everything because it is impossible to predict the future, but it is certainly better to be over prepared rather than under prepared, and the best approach is to start your emergency survival preparedness foundation and add to it in the proper manner.

The proposed order is as follows: the first thing that everyone should store in case of emergency is a 72-hour emergency survival kit. A 72 hour emergency survival kit is an easy-to-carry and easily accessible package that contains items such as three days of water (most important) and non-perishable food items (preferably ready-to-eat goods), personal toiletry/hygiene items, first aid kit and medications, flashlight and batteries, blankets and sleeping bag, a radio, pocket knife, and other necessities to many to list in this short article. 72 hours is the time frame that it will likely take to rescue services reach you or to restore the usual services that are interrupted by a major disaster. You should plan to be on being self-sufficient for at least these three days.

The next level up in the readiness pyramid to use for a longer period of time is a three-month supply of food that would include items that you ordinarily eat and can be rotated easily, eliminating any waste. These are such things as canned goods that fit easily into your food pantry or an extra closet, as well as frozen foods (meat, preserves, and vegetables).

Most emergency survival preparedness kits contain MRE’s (meals-ready-to-eat), freeze-dried foods, and dehydrated foods are the next step up in prioritization. These food storage items store for long periods of time in a climate-controlled environment, usually between 10 to 30 plus years. The only problem is they can’t do you any good when the power goes out which means the freeze-dried foods will be the first foods to be eaten.

Something lighter weight and easier to carry are Survival Tabs. You can actually carry 15 days worth of food in less than a two pounds package.

Dry-pack storage items such as wheat, white rice, and beans move us even further up the readiness pyramid. These items are very nutrient dense, and take more work to prepare meals with, but are extremely versatile and can be included in too many recipes to count. They are very good staples of your diet. Other dry-pack items include powdered milk, powdered eggs and powdered butter, bullion (chicken and beef), flour, pasta noodles, etc.

After having considered food preparation adequately, it is time to move up the readiness pyramid to the level containing extra clothing and footwear. Remember you must consider the climate in which you live and the change (or not) in seasons. If you live in a region that has harsh winters, be certain to have adequate coats, sweaters, thermal underwear, warm clothing, gloves, boots, and blankets.

Emergency survival preparedness also means having the proper camping equipment basics such as tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, camping stoves/Dutch ovens, fishing pole and tackle, a Leatherman multi-purpose tool, matches, a lantern, and porta-potties will all make it much easier to survive in the outdoors if you need to move even further up the readiness pyramid, and have to evacuate your home for whatever reason for a period of time.

The next level of the pyramid is firearms and ammunition. First and foremost these serve as tools for killing game animals for meat should this become necessary. Secondly, these may serve as protection in the event of a disorderly societal breakdown (rioting, looting, etc.) where you may need to protect your family from harm.

A person may survive indefinitely without a shower, but not comfortably. That is why this category of personal hygiene items are near the top of the readiness pyramid. The specific items you should include here are soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, a razor and shaving cream, deodorant, feminine napkins, and diapers. If you’re going to have to leave your home for the outdoors, you should have a portable camping shower. They can be found in any sporting goods store with the camping equipment. They can easily be filled with hot water for a nice warm shower.

Finally, once you have completed your collection of each of the preceding layers and levels (and not before), top of the readiness pyramid with an emergency fund. This should cover as much as three to six months of living expenses, and in case of a complete economic meltdown, it can be supplemented with gold and silver (poor man’s gold) bullion. But then, this would only be a worse case scenario. Your immediate concern should be to have something for at least 3 days to ensure your family’s survival in case of a natural disaster, for these are much more common and your likelihood of being caught in a catastrophic event of this nature is much greater.

Additional Items For an Emergency Preparedness Survival Kit

Additional Items For an Emergency Preparedness Survival Kit

Your basic emergency survival preparedness kit will contain essential items such as water, food, a solar and hand crank powered radio and flashlight. But it is also important to remember that other factors such as your particular location (flood, tornado or hurricane zone), your local weather, personal/family medical needs, and pets, will also impact what your survival kit should contain.

Emergencies Demand Preparation How Prepared Are You for Any Emergency

In an emergency disaster survival situation, you want to try to be as prepared as possible. It is better to have something and not use it than to need something and not have it. So in addition to your basic survival preparedness kit, here are a few more items, often forgotten, to consider when putting together your survival kit.

Prescription medications for yourself and family members (also note if these are to be taken with food, water, milk, etc

· Eyeglasses and/or contact lenses

· Infant formula and diapers

· Pet food and extra water for your pet

· Copies of important family documents stored in a portable, waterproof container. These could include insurance policies, birth certificates, identification (passport ID page), bank account records, etc.

· Cash, traveler’s checks, and change

· Emergency first aid reference material

· Sleeping bag or blanket for each person (additional bedding if you live in cold climate)

· Complete change(s) of clothing including long sleeve shirts, pants, and shoes (boots). Again, additional clothing as appropriate for cold-weather climates

· Household chlorine bleach (unscented without additives) and an eyedropper. This can be used as a disinfectant (1 part bleach to 9 parts water) or in extreme situations to treat water (16 drops bleach to 1 gal of water) to be used if you can’t find running water and are forced to drink stagnate water.

· A fire extinguisher

· Strike anywhere matches in a waterproof container

· Feminine personal hygiene products

· Mess kits, one per person, including paper cups and plates, plastic utensils, and towels

· Paper and pencil

· Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children

Depending on your personal requirements, your emergency preparedness survival kit may include some, none, all or more of the items listed. Remember, the most important thing is to not just prepare your survival list in advance, but then to assemble it, since it’s better to have something and not use it than to need something and not have it.

Preparation is essential for survival.

Emergency Survival and Preparedness

Emergency Survival and Preparedness

We are all asking ourselves whats happening to our climate.  The frequency of natural disasters and catastrophic events strongly suggests that climate change or global warming is playing a role and this makes our survival and emergency preparedness even more important. Hurricanes are more frequent and stronger when they occur, tornadoes seem to be more prevalent, wildfires are occurring more frequently, even earthquakes seem to be happening more often. These are all occurrences that could displace your family from your home or leave them stranded in the home without any services for days at a time.

Global warming facts do suggest that climate change may:

• Cause changes in precipitation (a greater incidence of flooding)
• See a higher incidence of forest fires and wildfires
• Have more frequent and intense storms and tornadoes

We are indeed seeing a pattern of increasing weather patterns around the globe. Within the past year, Australia has had a record drought, India had horrific monsoon rains and Greece had forest fires. During the winter of 2010, the Washington, DC area had the worse snowstorm to hit the city in 90 years. Washington Reagan National Airport received 17.8 inches of snow. Many other cities on the east coast received record amounts of snow. Are you prepared in the event that you’re snowed in and stranded in your home? or forced to evacuate due to wildfires, forest fires or floods? Are you prepared for when the next big earthquake hits and all emergency services are blocked from getting to you?

Floods occur all over the United States, from North and South Dakota to along the Mississippi basin to the deep south. Nashville Tennessee, in May 2020 Experienced historic flooding that took the lives of several people. Tornadoes are occurring at an alarming rate, forcing many people out of their homes and leaving them defenseless. What kind of provisions have you set aside for your family in case you’re caught in a flood situation? Are you ready for an emergency evacuation?

A major earthquake is one of the most severe forms of natural disaster. In some cases, cities are entirely wiped out and thousands of people or injured or worse killed. A prime example of such a catastrophic earthquake is the one that occurred in Haiti in 2010. This type of disaster could potentially happen in the US, because of the New Madrid fault system between St. Louis and Memphis, has a history of shaking violently, and has a series of faults several miles below the surface. Experts are saying that there is a strong possibility of a sizeable earthquake similar those in the 1800’s. It is reported that the biggest quake occurred in 1812 that caused 60 miles of the New Madrid Fault to rupture. This caused waterfalls on the Mississippi, and the river to run backward for several hours, in the river bends just northeast of New Madrid. This quake also created Reel Foot Lake in Northwest Tennessee.

Design Your Ultimate Survival Plan

A major catastrophe waiting to happen that you don’t hear very much about is the massive Yellowstone Caldera that can possibly blow any minute. The upward movement of the Yellowstone caldera floor between 2004 and 2008 was almost 3 inches each year. It was more than 3 times greater than ever observed since such measurements began in 1923. From mid-summer 2004 through mid-summer 2008, the land surface within the caldera moved upward as much as 8 inches at the White Lake GPS station. The last full-scale eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, the Lava Creek eruption which happened nearly 640,000 years ago ejected approximately 240 cubic miles of rock, dust, and volcanic ash into the sky. Can you even begin to imagine the havoc that would bring were it to erupt again?

Emergencies Demand Preparation What Disasters Are You Prepared For

Experts can only speculate when it’s going to that’s going to happen again. They say it’s not a matter of if, it’s simply a matter of when. And from the history or past occurrences to the present day scenario, it’s could happen again any day. Could this be the year it happens? Fortunately, by the end of 2009, the uplift had slowed significantly and appeared to have stopped. In January 2010 the USGS stated that “uplift of the Yellowstone Caldera has slowed significantly” to the point that the US Geological Survey, as well as the University of Utah and the National Park Service scientists with the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, maintain that they see no evidence that another cataclysmic eruption will occur at Yellowstone in the foreseeable future.

Compared to the eruption of Mt St Helen’s where during nine hours of eruptive activity, about 540,000,000 short tons of ash fell over an area of more than 22,000 square miles, the total volume of ash before its compaction by rainfall was about 0.3 cubic miles. Compare this to the 240 cubic miles from the last eruption of the Yellowstone caldera and you can start to fathom the magnitude of catastrophe that an eruption of the Yellowstone caldera could cause.strikepen-1-600x425

For Doomsday Preppers this scenario is only too possible of happening, which begs the question what is going to happen to your family if it should happen?  Disasters of economic proportions are indeed occurring more frequently, and although we cannot stop the occurrences, we all need to have an emergency preparedness plan along with an essential kit readily available when disaster does strike. We can’t wait until its too late and end up depending on someone else for our vital necessitates. This type of kit is becoming a necessity because simply in the event you are cut off from emergency help, you have to have some means of survival until help arrives.

Emergency Survival Preparedness, Making Your Plan

The more information we can acquire about emergency survival preparedness, the more disaster awareness we’ll have and thus the more we increase our chances of survival.

As we all know, natural disaster or terrorist attack can occur anytime. One of the major mistakes that people make is assuming that those catastrophic events will never happen to them. When a disaster does strike, most people’s first instinct is to panic. This is the last thing you want to happen. Panic is your worst enemy.

Emergency Survival Preparedness Library for the event of a serious catastrophe, we’ve provided you full access to download and store each and every resource. You can save a copy to your computer, tablet, cell phone or flash card – and if you’re worried about the possibility of electronic devices failing during an emergency, you can print a hardcopy of every publication.

It should go without saying then, that the key to surviving any type of disaster, is to prepare for it beforehand.Preparation and forethought are the best ways to fight panic. Thinking about what you need to do and when you need to do it, are keys in ensuring that you’ll be ready for to secure not only your own survival but that of that of your family as well. The question is, are you ready? If you are not, below are some of the things that you can do to prepare for any type of disaster.

Talk with your family about potential disasters that can happen in the general area where you live and why it’s necessary to prepare for them. Involve each member of your family in the planning process, by showing them simple steps that can increase their safety. By doing this, you can help reduce their anxiety about emergencies and help any tendency they may have to panic. Make out lists.

You’ll need a list of provisions and supplies that you can pack in an emergency survival kit and make sure you pack enough to last for 3 days. You need a list of what you should do as well as what you shouldn’t do and a timeline of when you should do it. It’s also advantageous to have a list of where you can go and where you can’t. You should have multiples of these last two lists depending on the type of disaster you are going to facing.

You should have a separate survival kit for each member of the family since each person needs are different. Make sure everyone knows where to find their survival kit and make sure that they keep their respective kits freshly stocked with the supplies that they are going to need.

For example, if you have a child with asthma, you’ll need to make sure that their survival kit is supplied with emergency breathers and medicines to keep their airways clear. If you have a diabetic in the family, they’ll need to make sure their survival kit has enough insulin or oral medication to get them through a minimum for 3 days or a least a week if possible. This is to make sure that they have what is needed before emergency help can arrive or if you have to evacuate your home. the women in the family will definitely have different needs than the men in the family, so it simply makes sense that the contents of the survival kits are going to be different.

Develop an evacuation plan for your family. This is where your lists of what to do and what not to do as well as the list of where you can go and where you can’t go are important. First gather facts about the type of disasters that happen in your areas such as Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Floods, House Fires and Wild Fires. Make plans on where you would go if your home is unsafe and you need to evacuate. Pick two different meeting places one in your neighborhood and one outside your neighborhood in case your neighborhood is being evacuated. Family members could be at different locations when a disaster strikes. How will you find your loved ones? Make sure you have a disaster communication plan to stay in touch. After a disaster, communications can be difficult; sometimes it is easier to get through to a contact person out of state than making a local call. If family members become separated in a disaster, have them call this person and let them know where they are and if they are okay. As part of your emergency preparedness plan, you will also want to ask a family member or friend who lives in another state or area to be the point of contact for your family. In case you get separated from one another, any or all of you can call this person so you can tell the others where you are. Make sure that even the younger children know this number.

Gathering Emergency Supplies. When a disaster occurs, there might not be access to food, water or electricity for days, or even weeks or months. You should store enough emergency food to provide for your family for at least 3 days, however, FEMA recommends that you have enough emergency supplies to take care of yourself and family for 2 weeks. You want foods that don’t require refrigeration and are ready to eat. There are several types and brands of ready to eat emergency foods available. You also want to make sure to include things like baby food and formula or other items that would be needed for infants or seniors. Water is so essential for survival. In many emergencies, public water supplies may either be disrupted or become contaminated and unsuitable for use.You will want to have at least 2 gallons per person per day. The average person drinks about a ½ gallon per day leaving the gallon and ½ for personal hygiene and food preparation. Other survival items you need to include in your emergency preparedness kit is a flashlight, radio – battery operated extra batteries, pocket knife, whistle, dust mask, extra clothes, emergency cash, emergency contact numbers and a first aid kit. Ambulances and medical personnel may not be able to access the area for quite some time. It is best if the family has care items available to aid anyone who is injured. A family should prepare themselves for a disaster as soon as possible. Being prepared could be the thing that keeps everyone safe in the worst of situations
