7 Must Have Survival Items for the End of the World Preparation

By | chemical attack preparation, chemical spill clean up, terrorist attack preparation

Are you prepared for the end of the world? If you are not, it is entirely understandable. Many people fear the thought of the end of the world. They might enjoy watching TV series such as Star Trek and others that play around with the idea but don’t fully comprehend their plan if it were to happen.

Economic Collapse Preparation

All in all, it is now evident that an economic crisis is not a far-fetched idea. The financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 is still fresh in many people’s minds. During the crisis, the mighty and powerful financial institutions collapsed – including the Lehman Brothers.

History has recorded other devastating natural disasters.In the year 2010, Haiti was hit with one of the worst earthquakes ever recorded in that part of the world. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake with a record depth of 8.1 miles left more than 200,000 people homeless. Millions of others were left homeless and in need of an emergency solution.

How to Survive the End Days

Other natural and human-made disasters have been recorded in the history of man. What has happened before, can always happen again. It is always advisable to stay prepared for any eventualities.
The following are some of the items that you might consider buying to stock them in your store or basement. They might be the most valuable items in times of emergency.

1. Water
Water is one of the most fundamental and significant things to have on you during a crisis. It is said that lack of water kills man faster than hunger. Therefore, ensure that you safely store some gallons of water somewhere in the house.
The good thing about water is that it can be easily found in rivers, pools and such. However, to remain healthy, it is advisable to have a way to boil this water to kill the harmful bacteria. One can also store some of the filters to help in the purification of the water from contaminated areas.

2. Food
Food is one of the primary needs in life. During an emergency, your need for food will be at the top of the list. As seen in the ‘end of humanity’ TV series, people result in inhumane ways when searching for food. Therefore having a secret stash of food is a sure way to survive in adverse situations.

It is necessary to find food that can be stored for an extended period. The people who live in the Arctic have an advantage since they can save food in the snow for an extended period. You can also freeze the food for storage. It might not be the most delicious, but again, during an emergency, delicacy is a luxury.

3. Shelter
Most disasters leave people homeless and even if they don’t, the crisis that follows forces them to move from their homes in search of food or other survivors. It is always nice to have a makeshift tent that is portable. That way you can be able to move around and shelter yourself from the harsh weather elements. It might also call for getting a sleeping bag. It will help you to remain warm and healthy and survive through the adversity.

4. Safety
Syria has recorded some of the worst cases of chemical attacks. The effects of those attacks are still evident today decades later. It is therefore imperative for any people who are conscious about their safety to have gear specifically for this kind of scenario.

Decontamination of surfaces that have been exposed to the deadly chemicals is necessary so that everyone can remain healthy. There is the FAST-ACT Microfiber Towel Pack which is efficient in decontamination of chemical substances from surfaces. They also have a bottle that is effective in cleaning gear that has been exposed.During a chemical attack emergency, it is useful to have a gas mask for safety. The FAST-ACT Air Respirator Mask is an excellent option for such situations.

5. Cash
Have you ever thought about that moment that you are caught up in an emergency where you could not access any banks, ATMs or even transact any online banking? According to some people’s belief, it is not wise to keep money in the house; it is an ancient way of storing cash. However, I would differ with that. What if there were sudden floods and your specific bank remained closed amidst all the chaos? It is highly crucial always to keep some cash stacked away in some ‘safe haven’ for such days.

Cash at that moment is a lifesaver because you will need to buy a few essentials such as food or even relocating to maybe a family member’s house. All this requires funds. The amount of cash you keep in your home is for you to determine.

6. Power Alternatives

We live in a modern day age where electricity is quite a big deal in our day to day lives. It is what ensures that our HVACs are working correctly among other things. What to do in the case of a substantial countrywide blackout? Backup generators would have to step in and cover the situation at hand. Solar powered systems would also play a huge role.

A more portable solution would be to have flashlights in your emergency survival kit that will provide alternative lighting. Keep a refrigerator closed for a few hours. Most often, it will keep food cold for a few hours.

7. Long Distance Communication Options
As discussed below, power could go off anytime with no prior warning. With the recent technological developments, power banks have come to save lives. Many people would attest to this without any doubt.

Power outages are inevitable sometimes and especially in cases of hurricane occurrences. Your survival kit should include a power bank because your phone could go off anytime and that would cut any communication with the outside world. These devices come in handy when you want to call for help or communicate with a rescue team on their way to rescue you.

The above essentials should not limit you to what should be in your kit. You can always add other items you feel should be on your list. It’s better to be prepared for such situations rather than be caught clueless and helpless.

Are You Prepared For A Terrorist Attack? 9 Tips On Staying Prepared

By | chemical attacks properness, terrorist attack preparation

Probably one of the most horrific terror attacks ever recorded was the one that happened on September 11th, 2001. AL Qaeda members hijacked four aircrafts, and two were flown into the Twin Towers, with one crashing in Pennsylvania. In this horrific act of violence, approx. 2753 people died.

The number of terrorist attacks recorded each year is something to consider. As much as the thought of terrorism is scary, nothing is more frightening than a lack of a preparedness plan in case an act of terrorism happens to or near you. Nobody envisions that an attack could happen right at their doorstep or their workplace, but the truth is; it can happen just about anywhere.

As much as the government has to protect its citizens, some occurrences may be beyond their power or rather; their response rate could be lower. What do you do in such a situation? Being prepared in advance is necessary, as it psychologically makes you aware of how to handle the situation. Below are general activities you can do if terrorism occurs.

Terrorist Attack1. Situational Awareness
One of the most significant assets you can have is ensuring you know what is around you. You should be aware of who is walking beside you or what is happening around. Be keen as this will act as a mechanism to identify is something amiss. Be alert and learn the art of listening to your surroundings. In case there is any abnormal behavior, look for an emergency exit. Being away from the danger zone will ensure that you are safe.

2. Have A Family Emergency Plan
Most often, what matters the most is family. How are you and your family prepared in case there is a chemical attack? First, ensure that you equip yourself with protective assets such as the FAST-ACT Mask which protects against chemical attacks. Talk about a detailed contingency plan as a family when attacks occur. Where should you meet in case bombings happen? Have a common meeting ground for everybody to reconnect as there may be issues with network or phone communications.

3. Have Cash Stashed Somewhere
We cannot stress how important having money in case of emergency is. You need to have some cash with you all the time in case there is an emergency evacuation, and you can’t access your car. What about if you need to leave your city or even country? The money that’s in the bank can’t be beneficial at that moment as the institutions may not be open or may be temporarily closed as well as their online banking services.

4. Store Food Strategically
Food and water are both essential to the body for it to function adequately. Since no one knows when an attack may happen, you always need to have food available that will last at least a week. Store food that could last even a month as you may never know how long the situation will continue and if the food prices will consequently become insanely higher.

5. The Bug-Out Bag Solution
A bug-out bag comes in handy when such terrorist attacks happen because you can just pick them up and make a smooth exit. As long as the bag contains the essential items to survive for at least 72 hours, then you are in order. Ensure that you always have it with you in your car as this will be more comfortable especially when such an attack happens when you are away from home.
Even still, while at home a bug-out bag is necessary so that if the worst occurs, you can quickly leave and find a safe place.

6. Protect Your Home
If you are planning on purchasing a house, find one that has a room that can be used as a safe room. This place is perfect because in times of danger you can converge with your family and stay safe until everything is over. In such situations of attacks, ensure that your house doesn’t look inviting. If possible, keep your car off the driveway as well as any pets.

A home that looks ‘deserted’ will most likely not attract the attackers, as they seek to hold people hostage. An empty-looking home reduces the likelihood of becoming a target. In cases of chemical spills in the house, you may need to use the FAST-ACT Powder Bottle Pack. Simply pour the powder on that specific area then clean it with the FAST-ACT Microfiber Towel Pack.

7. Staying Calm
Staying calm during high-stress and dangerous situations may seem hard, but it’s not impossible. Understand and accept that there is nothing you can do during the situation especially in the case of being held, hostage. Just calm down and keep quiet. Don’t risk your life by overpowering the criminals. Your life is the most valuable thing at stake, so protect it.

8. Build Makeshift Weapons
Unless you are a licensed gun holder, I would suggest not having illegal arms in the house. However, you can always use makeshift weapons for unforeseen situations as such. You can watch DIY tutorials on Youtube on how to make weapons such as bows. You can also get lessons on how to use them. Knives also come in handy when you are faced with a threat.

9. Protect Your Food
Protecting your food is a small but important detail. When storing food, store food that will feed your family only. What happens when outsiders come to look for food forcefully? Devise ways of making your stored food invisible; for example, you can hide food in containers that are mislabeled, such as ‘play kit.’ Fill up the food halfway, then add kid toys on top. Noone suspects such hence; it keeps your food safe.

Pre-planning reduces fear as it gives you a sense of confidence. A strategy is the main trick of staying alive and safe. All of the above measures will minimize risk. Acceptance plays a huge role too as it gives you room for expecting such occurrences which helps you to be emotionally stable.
