“SHTF” can cover quite a wide range of possibilities but the bottom line is it will be life changing and dangerous. I am referring to a large “event” such as what happened with Katrina. Think “economic collapse” -type event.
Here we go….
- Can you provide food and water to your family?
- What will you tell friends and neighbors that come knocking on your door when they have “needs”?
- When will you make the decision not to go to work?
- How many miles of gasoline for your vehicles do you have stored?
- How long will your prescriptions last?
- Where are your spare glasses and/or contact lenses?
- Where will you go #2?
- How will you cook and prepare food?
- How will you wash up and bath with no running water?
- How long will your batteries last having to use flashlights and lanterns every nights?
- Can you work together with your neighbors to start security patrols or a 24/7 neighborhood watch?
- How will your family members – especially children – remain calm in a very stressful situation?
- What if you have to vacate the area?
- What if you – the main “prepper” in the house is away on business when it happens?
- Can you pull the trigger to defend your home, your supplies, and your family should someone try to take it?
