How to Prepare for any Disaster


Many disasters exist that can wreak havoc on entire communities. Flood disasters can wash away the hopes and dreams of every household they touch. Earthquakes can cause entire cities to crumble to the ground. Hurricanes can blow away the homes and belongings of many families. Even terrorist attacks have caused destruction and heartache in the past. Being properly educated and preparing early can help more people to survive when bad times strike. The joint efforts of all members in a community can also fortify everyone’s strength and endurance. The following tips are meant to assist members of a community in preparing for any disaster:


1. Collective Thought Process


The most important element in preparing for any disaster is knowing that all disasters have similar consequences. All residents will need to flee to a place of shelter and safety. All residents will need to realize that there may be injuries. Everyone in the community will need to make efforts to maintain communication. Every household will have to secure a collection of food and beverages for survival. Electric will very likely be lost. Houses may suffer damages. Dangerous situations may be created. Once everyone comes to an understanding about such things, getting prepared will be much easier.



2. Plan Escape Routes


The first thing to do to prepare for a disaster is to figure out all possible escape routes. If a neighbor in the community has a basement or a shelter, residents should get in touch with this neighbor and discuss seeking shelter at that residence. Parents should contact schools to see if they will also offer shelter in the case of hurricanes and other natural disasters. Some schools are made of sturdy brick materials and could serve as very effective protective forts for many families.



Families should also have spare keys set aside for making a fast escape in a dire situation. It would also be helpful to have access to the quickest route to the hospital. It may be necessary to transport someone to the hospital for assistance.



3. Survival Packs


The next step in the process of preparing for disaster is setting up survival packs. In the worst-case scenario, the entire family will be stuck in the home. It may be necessary for family to survive for several days to a week without contact with the outside world. The elements put in the survival packs are crucial to sustaining life during that time.



The two most important things for survival packages are food and water. A good rule of thumb is to pack enough edibles and water for at least 72 hours for each person. Canned foods and non-perishable items are the best items for an emergency.



A first aid kit is the second most important item for survival. The kit should include sterile bandages, antiseptic ointment, ice packs, and something that can be used as a tourniquet. Other items to include for survival are blankets, flashlights, lighters, pocketknives, and a solar charging system.



Preparing one’s family for disaster is half the battle for survival. Communities should meet once a month and discuss the possibilities of disaster and how to handle it. If everyone works together, it will be very difficult for any one disaster to beat an entire community.

Emergency Preparedness

There are many reasons to prepare for an emergency. Natural disasters, emergencies such as fires, power outages, terrorist attacks or simple interruptions in power or food and water supplies will all require people be able to survive using only what they have on hand in their home. There are many steps to prepare for an emergency and to consider, from food stores to power supplies.

It is best to have a solid and well thought out emergency plan well before there is any sign of an actual emergency. This means figuring out much food and water need to be stored, evacuation plans, power supplies and having first aid kits and emergency kits ready to go the instant a problem arises. These plans should be reviewed from time to time to be adjusted in case of new family members or other situations so no one is caught unprepared.

A basic emergency kit should have a minimum three day supply of food for every person in the home. More advanced kits and preparation can have enough food to last weeks, months or years without needing to replenish it. The Starter Food Supply will last one adult for three months with a shelf life of 30 years, while the Harvest 10 Pack Food Supply can last 10 adults for one year and has a 30 year shelf life. This food supply should be rotated on a regular basis and also include plenty of water for drinking, bathing and rehydrating food. There are also a number of books a person can buy to store with their food supplies such as Cooking With Beans & Rice, Cooking with Home Storage and Mix A Meal to ensure that every family has plenty of recipes and cooking tips during an emergency to avoid food boredom.

An emergency preparation plan should include basic necessities other food, such as a hand-crank radio, a compass, flashlight or lantern with plenty of spare batteries, an extensive first aid kit including prescription medications, a tool kit for repairs to the home or car, spare fuel and/or firewood, a can opener, maps, a cell phone, water purification tablets and emergency documents. A one, two, four person or children’s Survival Kit can include many of these items in one convenient package that can be kept in a closet, and the “How to Prepare For Any Disaster” book can provide helpful tips and emergency plans for individuals and families that need some help getting started.

Keeping power in an emergency can be the difference between being comfortable and safe or trying to survive with no cell phones, electrical devices and only a fire to cook with and provide warmth. Solar powered chargers can help provide power, but a more reliable method is to use a power storing device to supply power during storms or when solar power is not an option. The Goal 0 Base Camp Kit is used to supply power at mountaineering base camps and offers 350 watt hours of power storage equaling 20,000 hours of power, which makes it ideal for people preparing long periods without power.
