A war, at some point in the future, is a nearly inevitable prospect, no matter where you live. That means it’s crucial that you understand not only what it would mean for a war to occur in your area, but also that you understand what you should do if that war does occur.
By understanding how to prepare yourself before the war occurs, you’ll be ready for the event if and when it ever does. After all, you definitely don’t want your family to be stuck suffering from a war that they have no control over. Make sure you prepare for war to reduce this possibility.
Building your stockpile
One of the first things that you want to do is create a stockpile of everything you could possibly need if you became cut off from the rest of the world. That stockpile should include a large number of things but there are some that will be more important than others, and that means you need to make sure you have those items in larger quantities.
So what should you be including in your stockpile so that your family is going to be safe and protected no matter what may come?
The most important thing in your stockpile is going to be food and water. You need to have enough so that if you are cut off from the rest of your city or town you’ll have enough to get your entire family through. This is going to take up a lot of space in your stockpile and that means you need to have a dedicated area where you can easily store it.
Make sure you are stockpiling foods that are perishable rather than a lot of microwave or even stovetop meals. You need to operate on the assumption that you will have no electricity and that means only items you can eat as they are (the majority of your stockpile) or items that can be cooked over a fire.
There are a large number of products that should be part of your survival gear stockpile. These would include things like knives, rope, hiking boots, canvas or tents and anything else you might need if you had to hike through the wilderness. This is entirely possible if a war occurs and especially if that war starts to get ugly quickly.
You may need to simply disappear with the rest of your family and make sure that you are able to survive in the wilderness. There are a lot of tools you’re going to want and you’ll need to make sure that most of them can fit into a knapsack before you go as well.
The best thing to do with your survival gear is to find the most important items, things like a compass, a large knife for cutting branches or meat if you go hunting, rope, canvas and non-perishable food and packing it into a heavy duty knapsack. You’ll want a bag for each member of your family, but make sure that it’s the right …
