Survival Tools

We may all have a different definition of the word survival. Dealing with traffic, rude people and just everyday tasks can be things we feel we need to “survive” to get through each day. Not having time for your cup of coffee or making it to your next paycheck are trivial when you consider you will need much more in the way of Survival Tools when you have a true emergency.

Do you have what it takes to get through a couple of days without power and/or water? Do you believe that if you had to evacuate your home you could continue on as you have in the past? Are you strong enough physically and mentally to survive a major disaster?

Survival Tools

If you hike or go camping, you know that you will need gear that are designed for these particular activities. Special ropes, ties and other equipment are necessary to complete tasks that aren’t typically done in our everyday lives. Life is different out away from today’s modern conveniences so you must consider your needs before leaving those city limits.

What tools would you need if you lost electricity for several days and the food in your fridge started going bad? What if you were told that you had to leave your home immediately, what things would you take? If you were out doing errands and a disaster occurred, would you be able to care for yourself and others around you?

Emergencies are events that are not planned occurrences. We do not know when they will happen or how involved they will be. Being resourceful and having some useful items readily available for you is something you should consider. Please research Bug Out Bags and also 72 Hour Kits as these will give you a great start on being prepared if necessary.
