Many times when someone starts talking about survival or the worst case scenario, they are seen as negative focusing on the worst of situations. Having some preparation for a SHTF scenario isn’t a negative thing at all. In fact it makes good sense in the long run.
Most likely life as we know it won’t even change completely and collapse, but there are some things to be prepared for just in case. Natural disasters, pandemic diseases, personal issues, and other things might come up that having some preparation will come in handy.
If bad situations do happen, many have planned locations to get to called bug out locations that have their stored preparations for the long term. This is a good strategy but sometimes you might not be able to make it out to this location in time or at all.
You might find yourself stuck in your city in your current location, so it’s good practice to find out what you can do right now to settle where you are in a worst case scenario or disaster.
If you have done nothing to prepare, it’s best to start with the basics like food and water. Getting a few weeks storage of food is a start and having water with methods to purify water will help. Then work on ways of heating yourself if you live in climates that get rather cold.
The important part is to start thinking about it all now just in case so that any preparations can be gathered sooner than later.
