Disaster Survival Checklist

The tornadoes that devastated Oklahoma and other parts of the South recently make it clear that natural disasters can strike at any time. Hurricane season has just started and parts of the South are already being impacted. And all of that is not to mention constant concerns about attacks on America. Are you prepared? Do you have your necessities packed and ready to go?

If not, please take the time to review this checklist to help you build one that the team at Insurance Town has put together in collaboration with Safecastle.com. Your family's lives may depend upon it some day. Just gather the items listed below and keep in a location that is easy to access and is known to the whole family.

Water

FEMA advises that you should have at least one gallon of water per person per day. Family members who are elderly, infirm, or pregnant may require more. The water is primarily for drinking, but the recommended amount per day includes water for washing hands and brushing teeth. A good rule-of-thumb is to prepare for three days (72 hours) without access to clean water. However, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina demonstrated that the reality could be much longer than 72 hours depending upon where you live; plan accordingly. You can either choose to store clean water in a sealed container or use a portable filter like this one from Berkey that offers optional features like solar power capabilities and an LED lit base.


Food

Experts say to pack 3 days of non-perishable food per person. Non-perishable foods do not require any form of refrigeration for them to stay good. It is best to choose foods that do not require cooking or water since both could be unavailable during a disaster. Safecastle offers MRE STAR prepackaged meals which require no cooking or water and are in good standing with the USDA and the FDA. Beware of emergency food bars that contain coconut oil or other tropical oils as many people prove allergic to these. Be certain to choose food that your family will be able to eat.

Important Paperwork

In the case of any disaster, it is a good idea to hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Make certain that you have copies of all of your family's important papers -- such as passports, birth certificates, social security cards, medical insurance cards, medical prescriptions, firearm registrations, deeds, titles, house and car insurance contracts, and any other papers or information you may need to rebuild your life if your house is destroyed.

Useful Tools

Each person has their own idea what makes the "perfect" collection of survival tools for their "bug-out bag". Without going into specifics, here are general items that should be in any decent survival kit:

Supplies for Personal Hygiene

Sometimes personal hygiene issues can make us feel the most vulnerable and helpless. You can keep your family from feeling this vulnerability and maybe even be able to help others. Be certain to pack moist towelettes, face tissue, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, towels, soap, and any other personal hygiene supplies your family may need to be comfortable.


Personal Electronics

Many people these days have a smartphone or tablet computer. There are also small portable game systems, cell phones, laptops, and a host of other small electronic devices that might prove useful, if you can keep them charged. If your family depends upon their personal electronics, then you may want to invest in a solar-powered charger or a small hand crank generator for your survival kit. Otherwise, make certain that you pack lots of batteries to keep those personal electronics fed; lithium batteries have the best shelf life.


Dress for Disaster

Be prepared for changing weather conditions for you and your family when you leave your home. Here are some tips for properly dressing for a disaster:

  • Dress in Multiple Layers
  • Wear Sturdy Comfortable Shoes
  • Carry Light Rain Gear
Shelter in Place

Sometimes the disaster is of such a nature that the authorities determine the best course of action to keep people safe is to implement shelter in place protocols. To be prepared for this possibility, you should measure all of your windows and doors so that you can purchase the appropriate amount of plastic sheeting and duct tape to cover over all of them. At the same time, purchase filter masks for your family.
In light of the recent rash of tornadoes in the South and Midwest, the topic of safe rooms has frequently come up. These are optimal for people who wish to have further protection from the elements or any potential disasters. Safecastle offers safe room quotes and construction for those who are interested in this top of the line option for your safety.


No matter what the emergency or disaster may be, you will be better prepared if you gather the items on this list. Do it for your family.

Don't be Vulnerable to Fear and Intimidation ... Prepare, Grow, Stand for What's Right

It's increasingly obvious even to the administration's previous lapdogs (Bill Maher, Piers Morgan) that they and indeed WE the voters have empowered a boldly tyrannical executive branch to run roughshod over traditional American values, our Constitutional liberties, the judicial system, and to American citizens of all demographics who stand in the way of their frightening vision for our country.

Deception and manipulation were the recognized political methods in play in this administration's first term in office. This second term has quickly shifted public awareness to the forceful, lawless power projection being used against opponents via any and all tools available at the administration's disposal.

Few individuals inside or outside the system have had the courage to stand up to defy this clear and present threat to America. Those who have have been abused and pilloried.

Yet, the series of outrageous scandals erupting in the media in the last two weeks have put these thugs on notice that there is still some fight left in us and that maybe, just maybe, we aren't going to take it anymore.

I pray that is the truth of the matter.

How to Solidify YOUR Stance

If you intend to be a part of the solution going forward, then you need to ready your stance right now.

1.  Prepare ... in any and every fashion your circumstances allow. I shouldn't need to tell you what that means, but I'd suggest a complete look at everything from laying up personal resources and supplies to bolstering your self-defense capabilities and firming up your spiritual foundation.

2.  Gather your resolve ... This fight may get ugly. Pain and suffering may be paying many of us a visit. Ask yourself right now if our objective--saving the America we grew up to know and love--is worth that price. When you come to the correct conclusion, get busy fortifying your inner determination. In other words, get your game face on.

3.  Be heard ... Fear and concern over losing a personal, comfy way of life keeps many silent in the face of oppression and tyranny. Stand and be heard now while your voice still counts for something. There is power in numbers. Your silence implies consent to the powers that be. Many times throughout history such acquiescence by populations have eventually resulted in genocide. Don't think that it cannot happen here. Don't let that even become a possibility.

Prepare and fortify for a fight that is still political but that could conceivably morph into a crisis not seen in this land by anyone still breathing.
