7 Survival Life Hacks To Prepare You For Any Disaster
You know the saying “better safe than sorry”. You also probably already know it is true because it has been confirmed so many times. Most of the people almost always have emergency plans in place and they always like to be prepared. Here are several tricks that will take your disaster response kits to the next level.
The Department of Homelands Security (DHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have created an emergency preparedness PSA campaign.
In it, they say that the three fundamental steps everyone should take before disaster strikes are to: 1) build up a supply kit for emergencies, 2) make an emergency plan for the whole family and 3) be up-to-date about the various types of emergencies that could happen and their appropriate responses.
This three-branched plan is made to encourage families to be proactive in learning about what protective measures to take, depending on the location and the kind of the disaster (whether it is natural or man-made); also to be proactive in determining where to meet and how to communicate with your loved ones during an event of that kind; and in packing enough supplies (including batteries, flashlights, first aid kits, medications and so forth), found and clean water in survival kits.
Once you make your emergency survival plan and firmly establish it, there are a couple of extra items you could include as reinforcements. That can be also pretty helpful in terms of having something on which to fall back in case you run out of some supplies or in case you need to improvise. We attach a video with a highly informative and useful content. It gives you seven tricks that could save you and all of them are using objects you most likely already have in your home. For instance, if the problem is that you have run out of clear, drinking water, you can solve it thanks to this ingenious solution that takes minimal supplies. Also, in case you deal with a problem with starting a fire or a problem with food cooking, you may find these hacks very useful and practical. We did not even guess that a soda can, an aluminum foil, or an empty carton for eggs can be of use and very practical, right?
We really hope that you would never have to use these hacks for a life or death situation, but still, we all must admit that they are good to know, just in case. Take a look at the video and learn these seven creative hacks, and let us know what you think about them in the comment section. You even might have tried some of them, or maybe you use other essentials for an emergency preparedness kit? If the later, share with us and the others and let us know which are they. We hope we won’t have to use them, but, who knows?!
