What was life some 50 years ago? Less technology meant better communication between family members and a better good night’s sleep.

No social media meant closer relationships with family and friends. Lower prices meant more affordable housing, food and other necessities.

Less stress meant lower mental health problems, less crime, divorce and suicides.

Better quality of food meant less cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other chronic health problems.

The conveniences of modern day life has also resulted in people being less trusting, more paranoid, self-destructive and unpredictable. If you are a religious person, then you may be aware that we are living in what the bible calls “the conclusion of the systems of things” (Matthew 24:3-14). This unpredictability means that if you want a better chance of survival, you need to plan ahead.

If Life Is Unpredictable, How Do You Know What To Prepare For?

First consider some natural disasters that can happen in your area. Do you live near the coast where you could get hit by hurricanes and tsunamis? Do you live near an earthquake fault line? Does your area suffer from seasonal wildfires? What about tornadoes, floods, and severe droughts?

Man made disasters are extreme hazardous events that can happen anywhere and cause death, injuries and loss of property. Examples include industrial accidents, acts of terrorism, mass shootings, chemical spills, hazardous material spills, chemical or biological attacks, nuclear blasts, dirty bombs, supply chain interruptions, economic collapse, political instability, and so much more.

Find Your Motivation To Begin

First make a list of potential disasters in your area, both natural and man made. Next make a list of supplies you will need, including those unique for your area and change in seasons. For example, what supplies you will need to survive extreme winters or summers. Take inventory of what you already have and build on it.

Emergency preparedness is not just a one-time preparation. Make it a continuous project and always look for ways to be more efficient. Once you start to build your emergency bag, you will understand the need to make your bag more efficient and lighter.

Make a plan today and get started. What you do today will be your insurance policy for your survival tomorrow. This will give you some peace of mind that, whatever happens, you and your family will be in a better position than most. So let’s get started!
