Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family
How can you begin preparing your family for different disasters?
All types of disasters share the following key characteristics: (1) they can cause mass panic and chaos in affected communities, (2) some disasters can
affect the availability of clean water, gas supply lines and electricity and (3) many disasters are unpredictable and extremely difficult to control,
especially if the disaster is caused by Mother Nature herself. (Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
With these three undeniable facts in mind, it’s obvious that the most essential step in survival training, if you already have a family, is to prepare each
family member for the onset of different disaster as soon as possible.
In order to be fully prepared, you should consider natural and man made disasters as potential dangers at any point during the year.
Why should you be vigilant about disasters?
The fact of the matter is that disasters tend to strike quickly and without warning; this applies to both natural and man
made disasters. Natural disasters
such as earthquakes and flooding can wipe out whole sections of mega cities easily – that’s how powerful nature is.
To ensure your family’s survival they need to be conditioned to adapt the survival mindset so they will be calm and confident during an actual disaster.
What is your first line of defense during a disaster?
Your first line of defense during a disaster is your knowledge of disaster preparedness and the emergency supplies, tools and equipment that you’ve prepared
in advance. Disaster supply kits are invaluable during an actual disaster, most especially if you have to evacuate your family to a safer location. (Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
What is a disaster supply kit?
A disaster supply kit isn’t just a box filled with food and water.
It should be a complete survival system that also contains medicine and various survival tools and emergency supplies.
There should ideally be two disaster supply kits: a large, comprehensive one that is closest to your family (at home) and an emergency disaster kit that
should have a permanent place in your family vehicle.(Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
The kit/s at home should contain the most valuable supplies, tools and equipment. You can revise and modify your disaster kit/s whenever you wish.
The one in the car is a contingency kit that you can use in the event that you are unable to utilize the one at home (e.g. you have no more time to gather
the kit before evacuating). It should also be equipped with essential items such as canned & dried food, water purifying tablets, etc. (Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
What are the most essential items in a disaster kit?

The most important supplies in a disaster kit are food and water.
When you’re stockpiling food for a disaster kit, make sure that the food is familiar, easy to open and consume and sealed. There is no need to buy unfamiliar
food such as military-style rations. (Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
The psychological impact of any disaster can be severe so it would help greatly if your family can reach for food they’re familiar with. Just having
something that is familiar can help a distraught family member mentally recover from the trauma of being in the middle of a disaster.
While many people stock canned or boxed food for disasters, you can also explore canning and preserving food for later use. Knowing how to preserve food is
an excellent way to be self-sufficient. Plus, homemade preserved food is more natural and healthier than processed food items!
What type of food should be kept in a disaster kit?
The type of food store in a disaster kit should be: nutritious, high in calories, easy to consume and can be readily stored again. It can be difficult to
find a variety of food items that have these exact characteristics so just try your best to find food that will sustain your family for at least 10 days.
I’ve met some survivalists who store at least six months worth of food items in their own survival stashes.
Six months worth of food may sound excessive but the key point here is that you’re preparing for uncertain conditions after a disaster. You never know the
conditions of your community after a disaster so having plenty of stored food is a logical choice if you’re preparing for an emergency.
If you are unsure as to how you can go about preparing for a disaster, I highly recommend speaking to your family about it so that you can plan and implement
as a unit. (Disaster Preparedness Plan For Family)
During a disaster, you have to learn to trust and depend on each other so that everyone can stay safe.
It,s not just natural disasters we need to prepare for one of the most dangers threats to society, and life itself, is our fellow humans when you watch the news each day.You see riots, violent, senseless murders, and acts of terrorism, over the past few years, these crimes have become part. Of everyday life, and the only question is….. how long will it take before the riots become too much for the police or army to handle..? A crumbling economy is putting more and more people out of work, which means more and more kids of the “lost generation” are growing up in poverty and when oil prices are hiked up by outside forces,we can no longer afford to travel, work, or even feed ourselves… which creates pure SURVIVAL mode in every single family across America and beyond. Lack of jobs prospects,no education and no food or water sends vigilantes onto the streets….. and from there, you’re on your own, but riots aren’t always triggered by
economic reasons, in recent years, we’ve seen hugely destructive riots in England, US, Argentina, France and many other countries, triggered by racial tensions too. What starts out as a peaceful protest, quickly escalates to full blown street warfare… with thousands of angry kids smashing,looting; stabbing, stealing and terrorizing their fellow neighbors and citizens. As racial tensions continue to rise thanks to the provocative global media,along with socio-economic strain, it’s only a matter of time before we see chaos on our streets and doorsteps once again. And when hundreds of rioters turns to thousands of angry kids on the streets, smashing and grabbing for their own survival, smashing your windows and kicking down your door, and there’s not enough police to come to your rescue, what will you do?. Many people think they’re prepared for the worst, but in this short video, an US Army officer reveals how 7 out of 8 home defense strategies will get KILLED….and the one strategy you MUST deploy to keep your family alive when angry mobs come after your possessions, your food, or your loved ones.
