Everything You Should Know About Emergency Preparedness

Getting Started With Emergency Preparedness | Safecastle

If we talk about Emergency Preparedness, a lot of people think that emergency prepping is not necessary or they think that it is not cost-effective, you will end up exhausting your funds into long term food storage.

In this article, we are going to discuss everything that needs to understand about Emergency Preparedness and a lot of other survival factors.

What is Emergency Preparedness?

We all know that all natural disasters are always unpredictable, not even natural disasters, any kind of disaster is unpredictable. We never know what kind of situation we are going to face the next morning. It can be earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. You can't fight any of the disasters that are going to hit your fan.

But The good thing is that you can plan for your survival. Just imagine the moment you got up & you had to evacuate your home and no one is sure when the situation will improve. So, would you be able to survive out there without any supplies?

This activity of preparing yourself with all the Emergency Supplies that you need to survive can be termed as Emergency Preparedness.

Why Emergency Preparedness Is Necessary?

By now, we all must have understood the Importance Of Emergency Preparedness. It's really important to prepare yourself always in advance because emergencies are always unpredictable. 

If we talk about the latest news, the world is now dealing with CVOID-19 which came into existence & drastically hit humanity. No one was aware that the world would come across such a thing which will impact the world so hard (literally it impacted not only humans but to the economy as well)

If we look out at the stats, globally there are around 2.7M people who are confirmed that they are infected with CVOID-19 whereas 1,93,671 could not survive this emergency and died.

The CVOID cases in the United States are around 9,03,098 with a death rate of 51000 which is high. 

The government across all the nations has declared the lockdowns and in a lot of areas, people are not even getting the essential supplies to survive through this situation. 

Just imagine yourself into the same situation where you are running out of your emergency essentials and you don't even have a backup to survive. That situation will be really difficult to imagine even, you can't let yourself & your loved ones starve for food & other supplies.

The government is requesting everyone to follow some important rules and the most important is Social Distancing. In this critical situation, if you even manage to get food in stores, you are still at high risk that you can get infected.

This is where the Emergency Preparedness comes into the play.

You can't predict the emergencies or any disaster, but you can always prepare yourself with the Emergency Essentials that can help you & your loved ones to survive easily.

Tips To Start With Emergency Prepping:

As we understood the importance of Emergency Preparedness, here are some important tips that can help you in Getting Started With Emergency Prepping.

  • Allocate a Constant Monthly Budget
If you have just started with Emergency Prepping, then start allocating some constant budget every month which you would be utilising in your Emergency Prepping. Like every expense, just make a new section into your expense manager & start adding funds into that every month.

Allocate a Constant Monthly Budget | Emergency Preparedness

  • Make A List Of Important Emergency Essentials

Once you start saving your funds for Emergency Essentials, then the next step that you have to follow up is to Understand what essentials are important to you and the essentials you really need & can't survive without them. For example, Medical supplies.
Make A List Of Important Emergency Essentials | Emergency Preparedness 

Then you would have a better understanding of how you need to invest your funds into the supplies that you need. 

  • Invest In Long Term Food Supplies

The most important element out of all other Emergency Essentials is Food. You and your family won't be able to survive any emergency without food.

If you don't have any food in your Emergency stock, you will starve & won't be left with enough energy to survive through the situation. 

So, invest your funds in Long Term Food Or Freeze Dried Foods. There are lots of companies who would provide you with Best Freeze Dried Food which you can store into your food stock without worrying about their expiration. The freeze-dried foods come up with a longer shelf life of more than 20 years which means you can stock up your Emergency Food as much as you want.
Grtting Started With Emergency Preparedness | Emergency Food Supply

You will get a choice of opting the different food packages such as Pouches, Cans, Buckets and even Emergency Kits. 

So, you can choose the food as per your requirements.

  • Keep Portable Water Sources In Your Stock

Other than Freeze Dried Food, the essential that you will need to survive through any emergency is a Water Source. You won't be able to keep many water bottles with you when you are out during the emergency. You will be available with the limited water & drinking contaminated water can make you suffer from illness.

So, to survive the Emergency Situation, you would need a Water Purification System. If you explore the market, you will get a lot of options for Water Storage.

You can either buy Water Purification Systems or there is also the availability of Portable Water Systems which are compact & are a perfect fit in your bag as well.

So, make sure you also think about investing your funds into Emergency Water Storage as well.

  • Have An Emergency Bag Ready

This is one of the most important things that you should always be ready with. You never know what kind of morning you would encounter, so you should always be ready with an Emergency Bag.
Emergecy Preparedness | Emergency Go Bag | Safeacastle

An Emergency Bag Or Evacuation Bag is something that consists of some amount of Emergency Supplies which you have to pick up and run if something goes wrong. You should have Emergency Food, Water, Medicine in the bag so that you can survive with the supplies.

  • Keep Important Essentials & Documents

If you are under treatment for anything or going through some serious medications, then stock up all your medicines for at least 2-3 weeks, so that meanwhile you don't get access to the medical store, you can survive on your own.

Also keep your important documents with you like your Identity cards, Driving License, Passport along with maps of your area that you are living in so that you can have an idea of the place if something goes wrong which will help you during your emergency survival.
Keep Important Essentials & Documents | Emergency Preparedness

  • Make A Survival Community in Your Area

You should create a Survival Community where everyone can share their tips and can be aware of Emergency Preparedness. If you understand the importance of Emergency Preparedness, then teach others as well.
Make A Survival Community in Your Area | Emergency Preparedness

So, that everyone can stay prepared and surviving all together is easy as compared to surviving alone. 

There are a lot of more things that you need to understand about Emergency Preparedness, but these were basic and most important which will help you in emergency survival.

So, now as we all have learnt about Emergency Prepping, it's time to implement everything and stock up all the Emergency Essentials that you need.

National Preparedness Month - Make your plan! #NatlPrep

We talk about being prepared ALWAYS, how could we leave out the most important month of the year - National Preparedness Month. This month was bought about after the most terrifying incident of September 11, 2001 and also because this is a month of Hurricanes. 

We have witnessed in the past where we ourselves or someone we know has suffered only because we did not plan for a disaster, be it a First Aid kit or Financial planning during times of peril.

This year's theme for National Preparedness Month is designed as a result of Hurricane Harvey wreaking havoc across. The first week of the month is dedicated to :


We have learned year after year the areas we live in are prone to natural disasters, the likes of snow storms, wild-fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes not bringing the man-made disasters into the picture, how prepared are we to face such issues?

Have you ever planned with your entire family on what their evacuation plan should be, is there a safe spot where you should expect all your family member to gather? Well, its never too late, START now!

And No, we are not just discussing Food & Water storage, let us take a look at some of the important things :

  • The number of people in the family.
  • Their dietary or medicinal needs on a daily basis
  • The number of children in the family
  • Pets in the household
Tips to strategize your plan:

  • Every member in the household should be part of the emergency preparation discussion.
  • Pick a safe spot for all your family members to meet in case you are far away.
  • Everyone should be aware of the basic necessities in times of an emergency.
  • Always have a Bug-Out-Bag ready with all essentials.
  • Subscribe to weather alerts based on the region you live in.
