We don’t always take into consideration the vast array of knowledge and skills we’ll likely need to survive any given emergency. Sure, there are the basics – stockpile water, food, and supplies. However, preppers will need much more than that in order to outlast a major crisis.
One of the most sinking feelings you can have is knowing you didn’t do enough to prepare for a crisis. That you’re in a situation you aren’t ready for, and that you don’t have what you need to survive.To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, it’s important to learn as many survival skills
Most every prepper knows they have to practice survival skills before an emergency. That way, when SHTF, they can feel confident in their ability to survive.However, the idea of practicing can turn into quite a hassle. For one, practicing things like shooting or hunting require you to be outdoors, and in a certain location. However, not everyone has this luxury.Other skills require other constraints that the ordinary prepper just can’t get around. These roadblocks prevent well-meaning preppers from getting what they need for disaster preparedness.Luckily, there are many other survival skills that you can learn in the comfort of your

One of the biggest threats to our country is an EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse). This disaster is so threatening, because it can easily wipe out the entire grid. And, if that happens, all electrical devices – GPS, smartphones, batteries, lights, etc. will go kaput.
Take the EMP of 1962, for instance. At this time, the U.S. chose to detonate a nuclear device at high altitude while they were flying over the Pacific Ocean. Well, when they did this, the resulting EMP from the explosion knocked out the street lights in Hawaii. And here’s the kicker… these streetlights were more than 1500 miles
If you’ve been in the prepping world for any length of time, you’ve likely heard of the term “EMP.” But what is an EMP? How can you prepare for it? And, most of all, how will this disastrous scenario affect your quality of life?
These are all good questions. And, by knowing the answers ahead of time, you can better prepare for this SHTF scenario. After all, adequate disaster preparedness is the key to success in nearly every survival situation!
