If one of your resolution for this year is having prepper gear you can start tackling the task in small bit and before you know it you will be done, and it is even easier when you know exactly what you should buy.Prepping will not just give you peace of mind but ensure you have the highest chance of surviving if a major disaster happens. If you have been talking to different people about prepper gear you might get a lot of suggestions concerning what you should do include in your plan but this can end up confusing you even further.You do not need hundreds of items to survive a disaster because you might not even have a way to move them all. Being sure of what you want prevents you from doing panic shopping where you will be adding anything you think might be relevant to your cart. You do not have to buy everything at once unless you have heard there will be an apocalypse the next day and you can be buying one item at a time until you have enough. Some of the items should be your long-time goals and you need to keep reminding yourself about seeing to it that you get everything.
Clean water is one of the basic things you will require to survive a disaster. When you are making your plans, you should set aside two gallons of water for each person per day. Do not just get a specific amount but you need extra for other purposes as well. You should be storing the water in gallons which can be reused. The bottled water might not last the entire time and being able to purify dirty water for human consumption will be very hardy. There are several ways of doing that and one of the most convenient one is buying a straw for that use. A fire is crucial for survival and you might use it to cook, communicate with people who are far away or chase the cold. Ensure you have two ways of starting a fire. You can opt for Ferro rods, matches, or Bic lighters.
It will be better if everyone is well fed and the food is critical.You should not buy supplies which have to be kept in the refrigerator. Canned foods, whole grains, boxed meals, and energy bars are great things to part. If you have canned foods, you should also have an opener for the cans. You do not need fancy cookware but rather something that can be used in preparing food in open fire.
