Can You Survive If Disaster Strikes Your Home?
You’ve watched the news reports of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other disasters and perhaps you’ve thought what would I do if this happened to me. But, have you ever really thought about whether or not you can survive if disaster strikes your home? Believe it or not most people would be totally unprepared if the unexpected happened and disaster struck.
Of course, you are probably thinking that this kind of emergency could never happen to you but, think of the millions upon millions of people that have been struck by some national or regional disaster. They probably thought it wasn’t going to happen to them too. And let’s face it the more prepared you are in case an emergency arises the better your chances are for survival.
At the very least having the basics for survival on hand will give you a fighting chance should your home be damaged and everything lost and emergency crews have trouble reaching your home. Having emergency food supplies and water tablets, a first aid kit, and way of getting light and some heat will give you a chance to survive just about any disaster. And these survival kits are reasonably price and the food in many of them will last 7 years so you don’t have to worry about constantly replacing them.
You’re probably thinking that with the economy in such a state you really can’t afford to invest in emergency kits but, can you afford not too? Having the right products and gear on hand may seem like a cost you can’t afford at this point in time but, these kits are well worth the investment. They are insurance for you and your family.
And since they last for years without needing to have anything replaced they really aren’t expensive at all. Do you realize that you purchased a $350.00 survival kit that lasts 7 years that only works out to $50.00 a year? Where can you buy peace of mind that cheaply these days? The fact is that you simply never know what can happen to you and your family and home but, you know what has happened to others and how much suffering occurs when families are unprepared for disaster. Isn’t knowing that you can save your family from some of that fear and heart ache worth a little investment?
It is a tough world we live in, and no one is assured immunity from a natural disaster. But preparing ahead of time and having the right gear, food, and survival products to help keep your family safe is the only thing that really makes sense.
So make a plan of where you will go if disaster strikes your home and make sure that you have those survival kits ready and kept in a safe place where they can help you and your family if the need arises. There really is no way to prevent a disaster from occurring but, being prepared for one is something you can and should do.
