Tips

Let's keep this simple...

MOST IMPORTANT... DON'T PANIC.

Start with an extra weeks worth of food... water... medicines... comms...

  • Food - buys stuff you like to eat... if you buy the long term storage food try it before you buy a year's worth... can food will last without refrigeration... dry foods will last as well... frozen pizza may be a bad idea if the power goes out for an extended period.
  • Water - Do you have a well? Can you pump water without electricity... if you are on city water do you know where you can get water that is potable (clean and healthy enough to drink)?
  • Medical - Do you have to take medicine to keep going? Can you treat an accident such as cut or sprain... or broken bone...
  • Communications - If the phones... cell phones and land lines don't work can you talk to your neighbors without having to walk over and knock on their door... or yell over the fence.

Once you have a week's worth of food... and know how to get water... secured you medicine and medical supplies... expand your stores to two weeks...

Next expand your stores to a month's worth

Next expand your stores to two (2) month's worth

Expand your stores to whatever level you want to... We suggest six (6) months as a minimum...

It's important not to get overwhelmed...

Water

Water is an essential daily need...

You can survive only three days without water, three weeks without food.

How much do you need... plan for one gallon of water for each person per day... this is drinking water. Water needed for hygiene and dishwashing is an addition.

Bottle water is good for the short term... if you have a well how do you get water if there is no electricity?

Can you drink surface water - river / creek / lake / pond /swimming pool - water... yes but not directly if want to escape the dangers of parasites and bacteria which result in Montezuma's Revenge and an inevitable miserable death.

For surface water you will need to filter the water along with boiling water for at least 15 seconds at a rolling boil.

IMPORTANT TIP: DO NOT mix up your dirty water containers with your clean water containers... when you are using a questionable water source.
