What to Put in a Doomsday (or Disaster) Survival Kit While 2012 is an excuse, there's nothing wrong with being prepared. Just look at Katrina, and the devastation it wrought. My personal wake up call was in 1999 when our city got hit with an October heavy wet snow that basically rendered the entire city without power, sub freezing temps, and obviously no grocery stores open. Everything was liveable after about 72 hours when power was somewhat restored to areas, but our house was without heat for a week. If we had not have had a wood stove and a source of fire, we likely would have been in very bad shape. So now, in my pocket, I always carry: -A source of light (4Sevens Quark currently, or a Surefire E1e) -A blade (currently a Leatherman Squirt P4 and Skeletool) -A source of fire (Needs replaced - but a generic magnesium starter) With those three items, you might survive. -72 hours worth of (very) basic food (instant rice and packaged tun) -32oz of Water in a re-usable bottle -Another cup -5 mylar blankets -Zip ties -Paracord -Tinder
10 day survival pack for your vehicle for just $25 by Jeffrey Yago, P.E., CEM Issue #104 It seems like every winter there are news stories of people getting stranded for weeks in bad weather while driving through the many remote areas of our country. In fact, this past winter, our nation held its breath waiting for news of James Kim and his family who got lost traveling the snowy roads of Josephine County in Oregon, not far from where this magazine is published. While his wife and daughters, who stayed with their vehicle, were eventually found alive, he succumbed to the cold as he hiked through snow looking for help for his family. And there are also many cases of people trapped for days in their vehicles after skidding over a bridge embankment, even though they were only a few hundred feet from a busy highway. I have written many articles about how to prepare your home for a power outage or national emergency, but today I want to address how to be prepared for an emergency when traveling in your car or truck.

ZDAY Survival Simulator HD Bug-out bag Off-the-shelf Red Cross preparedness kit . A bug-out bag is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours when evacuating from a disaster. The focus is on evacuation, rather than long-term survival, distinguishing the bug-out bag from a survival kit, a boating or aviation emergency kit, or a fixed-site disaster supplies kit. The term "bug-out bag" is related to, and possibly derived from, the "bail-out bag" emergency kit many military aviators carry. Other names for such a bag are a BOB, 72-hour kit, a grab bag, a battle box, a Personal Emergency Relocation Kits (PERK), a go bag or a GOOD bag (Get Out Of Dodge) INCHbag (I'm Never Coming Home). Rationale In addition to allowing one to survive a disaster evacuation, a bug-out bag may also be used when sheltering in place as a response to emergencies such as house fires, blackouts, tornadoes, and other severe natural disasters.

Decked Out: Zombie Apocalypse Unless you’ve been hibernating in your underground bunker for the last few weeks, you’re well aware that the zombie apocalypse is upon us (just like the Mayans predicted). We’re no suckers, we know there are a few steps we’ve got to take before any Walkers coming strolling into our neck of the woods. Besides settling on the ideal blunt object, we’ve got to have our attire in order. This is what we’re thinking. 1. MacGyver, Survivalist, or Stockpiler: The Urban Survival Skills Everyone Should Know It's your word against his.. If he ain't talkin, your word pretty much wins.

Survival Gear & Bug Out Bags A Bug out bag is basically a large survival kit that’s filled with everything you need to survive after a disaster. A Bug Out Bag allows you quickly grab what you need should you be forced to evacuate during a disaster.

Below we discuss some of the items that you may want to include in your Bug Out Bags, as well as some items that will hold up when it really counts. This will depend on a number of factors, such as the area you live in (climate, elevation, etc….)
