Family Preparedness is the Key to Urban Survival

Your family needs to be prepared if they are going to survive an urban disaster. The world is not a friendly place anymore. With more than 50% of the population living in urban areas it is more important now than ever before that your family is prepared to cope with disasters.

Water & Foodstuffs

Authorities tell us that a 72 hour bag is all that we need to survive a disaster. They say this with the assumption that within 72 hours emergency relief would be set up to handle a flood of victims. But if we should have learned anything from recent disasters, it is the fact that they may actually need more time.

To be prepared for a natural or man-made disaster, your family needs to have water and foodstuffs safely stored for at least a week, even better would be a month. Remember the panicked people at the Super Bowl after hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans? That picture alone should be enough to make us realize that a 72 hour bag is just not enough.

Potential Disasters

The reason that we are so vulnerable to potential disasters is because so many of us live closely together in packed urban areas. This makes any disaster affect many more people. It is also an inviting target for terrorists who want to be able to kill as many people as possible.

Key To Family Survival

If you want your family and yourself to be able to survive a disaster, you need to be prepared. You need to have a plan for evacuating your area if the need arises and you need to have a plan if the disaster is such that you are safer hunkering down.

You need to be prepared with water, food, and anything else that your family will need. It is too late to go to the grocery store when a disaster hits. Think about the last storm that came your way. Wasn't the grocery store a madhouse as people tried to stock up on food at the last minute?

And what if a disaster hits with no warning? You need to be prepared.

How To Get Prepared

Many people put off getting prepared because they think that it will be a complicated expensive process. This doesn't have to be true. It's like the old kids joke - How do you eat an elephant? - A: One bite at a time.

You can start a step by step plan that will allow you to be prepared in case of an emergency. By taking it one step at a time, you can be better prepared each day.

I have written a easy to follow guide that will show you how you can be better prepared for any emergency. Go to to get more information.
