Are you prepared to survive the apocalypse? The fact is that most people are grossly un-prepared when it comes to survival training and resources. The chances that a major catastrophe will happen in your city or town in your lifetime is high enough that it is common sense that you should educate yourself in the art of survival.
But what should you do to prepare for the upcoming apocalypse? What do you need to do to prepare for disaster – either in the form of natural disaster, economic or governmental collapse, or even hostile invasion?
4 Things To Help Prepare Youself
1. Discover survival techniques and strategies.
Read up on survival tactics and techniques. Even reading just a few of the best survival books and courses will give you a foundation of knowledge that can see you through many disasters.
They say that ignorance is bliss – but that’s just not true when it comes to you, and your family’s, very survival.
2. Have the best survival gear.
Put together a survival gear checklist. Make sure you have the bare essentials on hand, and that you know how to actually use them (it won’t do you any good to have the best survival gear if you don’t know how to use it!). You will be surprised by how little gear you really need to stay alive in a disaster, as long as you have the BEST survival gear.
3. Stock emergency food and water supplies.
In most survival situations, your biggest danger is running out of clean water and/or having nothing to feed yourself and your family. Luckily, stocking emergency food and water supplies is surprisingly easy and takes very little effort – IF you are stocking the right food supplies (i.e. long-term food storage, and light weight emergency food kits), and IF you properly store your water in the right kind of barrels. Proper water storage containers and filters should be at the very top of your survival gear checklist
There must be no worse feeling that looking down at your kids who are dying of thirst, and knowing that you have NO access to clean water. Don’t let that happen to you – prepare before the disaster strikes!
4. Learn how to protect yourself and your family.
If a disaster strikes and society breaks down into anarchy, the strong but unprepared will have to steal from others in order to survive (i.e. from YOU). There is a good chance that if the government collapses and anarchy rules, you will have to protect yourself, your family, and your survival supplies from marauding bands of thieves. Learn how to protect yourself, and make sure that you have the best tools for your protection on hand.
These are just a few things that you can do to prepare yourself to survive the apocalypse. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more that you need to know.
I am a gym owner, personal trainer, reality based self-defense instructor (Certified Level 2 Krav Maga), and passionate bushwacker, survivalist and prepper. When I’m not working on one of my many projects (which include trying to decipher current world events), I enjoy working on my homestead that sits on 60 lovely wooded acres out in the country in rural Canada, honing my bushcraft and blacksmithing skills, and sitting in my hottub with a glass of good bourbon…
