    Emergency Water for Survival

    Emergency Survival / Prepping > --------------------------------------------------- Storing potable water can be one of the trickiest parts of prepping. It is crucial to have water on hand, though, if the local water supply becomes contaminated or simply isn’t accessible. The problem with storing water is that the shelf life is typically short, and there’s a risk of chemicals from the packaging leaching into the water. Filtration and purification systems are good to have on hand, but they only benefit when there is an actual water supply. Luckily, there is a company that figured out how to can pure water so that it has a 50 year shelf life. Blue Can Premium Emergency Water is packaged in 12 ounce cans, and can be stored between 33 degrees F to 150 degrees F for up to 50 years.

    Emergency Survival / Preppers > Food > --------------------------------------------------------------- Humans usually need at least 2,000 calories every single day – which adds up really fast. Depending on your anticipated needs, you may want one or several food-geared buckets in addition to your emergency supply kit. Any good recommendations for this list?

    Emergency Survival / Preppers

    "Those who prepare today will survive tomorrow." Water Food Mobile / Emergency Roadside Preparedness • Have access to the phone numbers of friends, both near and far. • Make and rehearse an escape plan. Know the nearest exits in your building, as well as the emergency plan of your children’s school. Set up family meeting places—such as a school or a library—one nearby and another outside your neighborhood. Authorities recommend that you practice walking with your family to those meeting points. • Plan to help others, including the elderly and the infirm. During—Act Quickly “When fire broke out, most people didn’t panic—they delayed,” relates Joshua, quoted at the outset. “Some turned off a computer or filled a water bottle. One man said, ‘Maybe we should just wait.’” Despite the hesitancy of others, Joshua shouted: “We need to get out of here now!” At that, his coworkers snapped out of denial and followed him down the stairs. “If anyone falls, pick him up and keep moving,” Joshua kept calling out. “We’re all going to make it!” • In a fire. Stay close to the floor, and move quickly to the nearest exit. Smoke makes it hard to see, and most fire deaths are caused by smoke inhalation. Leave behind personal items. Seconds can make the difference between life and death. • In an earthquake. Get under sturdy furniture or next to an inside wall. Expect aftershocks, and get outside and away from buildings as soon as you can. Trained rescuers may not arrive for hours, so try to rescue others if you can. • In a tsunami. If the water suddenly rushes away from the shore, move quickly to higher ground. Expect more and larger waves. • In a tornado or a hurricane. Go to a storm shelter without delay. • In a flood. Stay out of flooded buildings. Avoid wading in or driving through water. Floodwater can contain sewage and conceal dangers, including debris, open manholes, and downed power lines. • Did you know? Two feet [0.6 meters] of moving water can carry a car away. Most deaths in a flood result when people try to drive through moving water. • If the authorities order evacuation, leave immediately! Let friends know where you are, or they may risk their lives looking for you. • Did you know? Text messaging may be more reliable than telephone voice service. • If the authorities direct residents to remain at home or shelter in place, stay inside. In case of an outdoor chemical, biological, or nuclear accident or attack, stay indoors, turn off ventilation, and seal all doors and windows. In a nuclear event, go to the lowest internal part of your building to reduce exposure to radiation. Listen to local TV or radio news. Stay indoors until authorities announce that the threat has passed.

  6. The food display looks enticing to you doesn't it? Well... it also is lickable and a temptation that some dogs also find irresistible Think twice before wrapping your fingers around that sandwich or wrap.. And no... this wasn't a "service dog" Public Health in restaurant establishments in the United States has plummeted over the past few years unfortunately. People years ago would have been horrified by this. But isn't a dogs tongue supposedly cleaner than a humans? (why do I doubt this wives tale?)
