1. There are a lot of factors in survival.
    One resource I found which succeeds in merging these is the Marla survive system
    (check it out on google) without a doubt the best survival website that I've heard of.
    look at the extraordinary free video.

  2. Plastic & duct tape is a great idea. Personalize your first aid kit. (i.e. preferred antibiotic cream, travel toothpaste and brush, etc). Purell wipes (alcohol based I noticed) will burn. Useful if needed in that way. Bic lighter (cheap and small) for fire lighting backup. With the Lifestraw, water expiration dates can be ignored. And lastly, keep the food rotated. Eat as normal and then replace when half empty. Dogs are good in case the food runs out (tastes like chicken).

  3. the plastic sheeting and duct tape combination is not only useful for "making a shelter" but the reason why i have those two is for the event of a nuclear disaster and/or pandemic. if you have these two first step is two seal all the dry wall all the windows all the doors and the most important other than windows cracks, corners, and edges. then, you want to isolate a SMALL room (not something like a closet unless it is a big closet) with multiple layers sealing up the entrance (should resemble an air-lock) set up camp there for a while and DO NOT LEAVE UNTIL EITHER CIVIL DEFENSE TELLS YOU TO (i would probably want to avoid them because they are probably going to take you to a forced labor camp) OR YOUR LIFE IS BEING THREATENED BY SOMETHING ELSE. also you should have another room similarly setup so you can throw your dookie and or dead bodies in there.

  4. In case of emergency and you’re inside: fill up your bathtub(s). It’s pretty fast and simple if you’re stuck inside your house for a while. You won’t know when your water supply will be cut off. You can boil it to cook food with too, or boil it to drink if the tap water isn’t super clean. You’ll have somewhat drinkable water for a few weeks. Keep a stock of mid to high-calorie food, water, vitamins, pain/fever/diarrhea meds, first aid, a rope, gatorade/pedialyte (something to keep your electrolyte levels balanced), batteries/radio/flashlight, spare phone, candles/matches, lighter/flint/firestarter, cans/opener, toilet paper, blanket, heat packs, waterproof bags with ID/passport photocopies.

  5. Just a quick reminder: when you live in coastal areas and prone of tsunami like me, this survival kit might be too much. We have one in our backpacks and we should keep it light and waterproof in case the water caught up to us. So i'm talking everything you had on smaller size, maybe cut a thing or two and add life jacket

  6. Finally, I find a usefulvid for an ACTUAL emergency kit. When I search it up it's just about girls like…."OMG. You like ALWAYS need perfume with you, because, you NEVER want to be smelly….EW!"
    Yes I know it's for school and stuff but come on. People these days people are really not aware or even care about what is happening around the world, they realize once it actually happens.

  7. An interesting talk is price comment. I believe that you should write extra on this subject, it wont be a taboo topic but typically people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  8. excellent pack and also kudos for preparing. a few opinions if I may. 1 ( yes put all your provisions in that bag so They are all together when you need them. 2) a canteen or water bottle is good to have . 3) you should have a couple ways to make fire, just in case. 4) the most expensive item in your pack should be your knife and or multitool. it may be the one tool you have to trust your life with, so don't cheap out on it. All in all you've put together a very good bag. always remember" fortune favors the well prepared ".

  9. Do you have a basic tool box at home? screwdriver set, hammer, screws, nails, duct tape, pliers, WD40, toilet/sink plunger, zip lock bags (when furniture comes with spare bolts, note details on zip lock bag), Alan keys (often free with flat pack furniture), zip ties, scissors, cord, sewing kit (the mini ones often have really lousy thread…ask a sewing friend to help you put together a basic repair kit. keep spare buttons that come with outfits in the kit too.) Does your first aid kit have something for splinter removal eg tweezers? Does it have an eye bath? a medicine cup can also be used as an emergency eye bath 🙂

  10. this is a great video. good on you for thinking ahead 🙂 I have some tips. Firstly ask yourself what kind of emergencies are you likely to face. In my area bushfires, flooding, severe weather, blackouts lasting days and heatwaves have all happened and continue to be worth preparing for. I'm in the country however disease outbreaks are also worth preparing for as well as terrorist attacks. The best thing for your preparedness kit is knowledge and practice. Walk to local services and imagine what might happen. Hospital. etc. Which paths are best suited to which situations. If you have to stay at home: do you shop in a regular way which keeps your food and water, toiletries etc overstocked? two, three weeks of toilet paper, food, water, etc on the day your cupboards are "empty" ( before shopping) is good. If your toilet is not working what will you do? camp toilets are handy, some diy ideas are available online. what if garbage is not being collected for several weeks. metal garbage tins are useful and can double as storage. (rodents love natural disasters.) Bug repellent, sunscreen, antiseptic, antiinflammatory cream, pain killers, antihistamines, wet wipes (for "showers"), extra socks and underwear. Feet care is important. Garden gloves. Now think about what you keep in your car. Think about what you keep in your handbag. I never leave home without my handbag. It has pain killers, antiseptic cream, burn aid, Band-Aids, sunscreen, bug repellent, hair ties, wet wipes, germ kill gel, " emergency " cash. A rechargeable power bank for my phone. some throat lollies (useful emergency energy source.) a water bottle. a lighter (great for birthday candles and emergencies) do you wear that handy bracelet? could it be attached to your everyday handbag? Your multitool has a can opener, do you know how to use it? practice 🙂 a poncho, garbage bag or waterproof jacket can double as emergency shelter. Keep your grab and go bag handy, light and easy to access. Have a mini kit in your car and handbag. The kit grows, shrinks (gets lighter) and evolves as the years go by and you use it. The more you use it, the better you understand your own personal needs. Keep your petrol tank at least 1/2 full. When it's 1/2 full think of it as empty. pumps run on electricity, if the power goes out, you may not be able to refill. This has happened to friends of mine. There are some great apps to keep you informed about traffic and weather hazards in your area. Keep evolving and practicing using your kit 🙂

  11. 1 gallon of water, per person, per day. No less. Also, the Lifestraw is incredibly difficult to drink through. It's like trying to suck cake through a rolled up napkin. The Sawyer mini is far easier to utilize, and can be used to fill vessels. Either way, it's you've got a decent start on a comprehensive kit. Consider adding emergency 72 hour candles, maybe an MSR Pocket Rocket, and some dehydrated foods. There are tons of hiking foods that have ridiculously long shelf-lives, and don't require any heat. Would also recommend a pair of thick work gloves to protect your hands when moving debris (especially useful in a bad earthquake).

  12. such a brilliant idea! I've not seen very many videos like this one! I'm from the UK and we don't have very many natural disasters but it makes me want to make one just incase! 🙏🏼

  13. I do geoscience and this vid isn't paranoid on any level, LA has a BIIIIIIIG earthquake coming. Could be tomorrow could be in 50 years, but you're sitting on the world's most prominent transform fault & just chilling out there. Before someone comments about earthquake proof buildings, the biggest danger is from what I understand the fires and the road blockage that results, not actual falling structures.
