Many preppers and survivalists are preparing for major long-term emergencies, such as economic collapse or political turmoil, civil unrest, war, plague outbreaks, or EMP events. But we must not forget about the smaller, everyday emergencies like house fires, bad weather events, temporary power outages, car or appliance breakdowns, sickness, household accidents, and other bad events that don’t quite add up to the Apocalypse.
Here are some ideas for preparing for those smaller, less Earth-shattering, but more frequent emergencies. Frankly, all preppers and survivalist should be doing these things before preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse.
1- Every household should have an emergency fund…..
2- Have some cash on hand….
3- Make sure everyone in your household is aware of what to do in case of a fire…..
4- Make sure everyone knows, especially younger kids, how to call 911 in an emergency.
5- Every home & apartment should have at least one workingsmoke detector. It should be battery-powered not hard-wired. Make sure the batteries are fresh!
6- Every home & apartment should have at least one Fire Extinguisher. Be sure everyone in your home knows where it is and how to use it. A possible alternative, back-up, or supplement to the traditional fire extinguisher is the Fire Gone Extinguishers. These are smaller, less expensive, very easy-to-use, and easier to clean-up (and they work on class A, B, and C fires).
7- Have a good First Aid Kit in your home (rather than just having random supplies scattered about your house)…..
