Many people never think about being in a urban survival situation. They certainly don’t think about being in an earthquake survival situation or a tornado survival situation. However those who have had the unfortunate experience think about it now and probably for the rest of their lives. Once you have been in an urban survival situation such as a tornado or hurricane situation you begin to realize how important it is the plan for the possibility of such a situation occurring in the future. You also realize the wisdom of having some sort of survival kit on hand to help the through the situation.
There are different types of urban survival kits that can be purchased or you can make up yourself. What you put in the kit depends on the purpose. a basic urban survival kit will contain things like water, food, ways to keep warm like a simple shelter, rain gear, blankets and a fool-proof way to start a fire. This type of survival kit is designed to stay in the same location for three or four days until the lights come back on other the authorities can make contact.
Other types of urban survival kits include the bug out bag. The get home bag is designed to have in your place of work, such as your office. It will contain a pry bar, breathing masks, water, radio and dried food. These items will help you and others escape the building and eventually find your way home. The bug out bag is like the general urban survival kit and designed for mobility. Being able to move quickly is key to finding a safe place to reside especially after such events as an earthquake or tornado.
The bug out bag can be useful for escaping the urban area in times of crisis. Of course you will have to prepare this survival kit properly. This type of survival kit will aid you in getting to a safe rural area until the crisis situation is over and things are returning to normal. Returning to normal could mean having to exist in a substandard situation for days or even weeks. Just ask the survivors of various hurricanes and earthquakes. Having to rely on government assistance could take longer than you think.
Being prepared for various disaster situations is possible. Thinking ahead to the types of situations your area of the world could be in could be essential for your well-being. There are a number resources on the internet that can help you to prepare for these situations in just one month only taking minutes a day.
