Disaster Survival Checklist

These Items Are Crucial to Your Survival.
Don’t Leave Home Without Them!

Daily Carry– on your person or within reach 

 

Emergency whistle and compass

  1. Whistle (buried under rubble – if you can breathe, you can whistle)– one of the best ways to signal for help.
  2. A Full Container of Water – in bottle or pack. Think lost, trapped or buried – same as #1. People have survived for weeks without food, but even a day without clean water puts human life in jeopardy.
  3. Open Swiss Army KnifeA Multi-Function Tool- from the world famous Swiss Army Knife™ to modern, belt carry, combination tools – good for every day Emergencies.
  4. A ‘small’ Individualized First Aid Kit for your personal needs. Do you have special requirements? – medicine is obvious. I recommend you carry a 2 weeks supply. I also carry a spare pair of glasses (my most recent ‘old’ ones) and my wife carries two inhalers for her asthma.
  5. Protective Weather Geargloves, poncho and space blanket for warmth. Protect your hands. Gloves keep them protected from cuts from debris.
  6. Head Protection Mask, goggles & ear plugs (or dust, smoke, biohazard & chemical Hood) – wear a hat (sun exposure daily)

BONUS: Emergency Phone numbers should be typed, waterproofed and on your person – Electronic devices can become inoperable, and what if you are unconscious? Consider using a waterproof luggage tag to protect them.

OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

Predetermine AT LEAST 3 alternate, safe places to meet, if your family’s primary base is not accessible.

Insurance records (Fire proof safe or Safety Deposit Box)

Insurance, earthquake (Fire proof safe or Safety Deposit Box)

Inventory of your home, car and possessions at alternate locations

Computer backed up at all times – OFF SITE

IF no power, do not open freezer until ready to cook everything when thawed. IF you have spare space in your freezer, fill it with water containers. It keeps the freezer colder longer and provides more emergency water. If you have too much, trade it with neighbors for items you need. Barter Will Be The New Economy in a Disaster.

Start building ‘teams’ of people (family, friends and neighbors) who could help in an Emergency. For example, who among your family, friends and neighbors have first aid or EMT training? Promote Preparedness Responsible – DO NOT BRAG about how much you have. That makes you a target.

Store emergency supplies discretely where repair technicians, delivery people and neighbors will not be aware of how much you have. Keep Emergency Supplies in boxes labeled uninteresting titles like: Old Taxes, Family Photos, Christmas Wrapping paper. Hide boxes or cans of food in back of closets, drawers, under stairs, behind sofa.

Your Brain Is Your Most Important Survival Tool – use it frequently.

  4. I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I’m no longer certain whether or not this submit is written via him as nobody else know such certain about my problem. You are amazing! Thank you!

  5. I do consider all of the concepts you’ve offered for your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    you should list that if your are going to have any weapons, the best choice is air rifle due to the ability to carry thousands of rounds of ammo and since now the average pellet rifle can shoot over 1200 fps which is faster than most hand guns, this is a formidable weapon. Also in a word of anarchy cash is worthless, gold and silver will be the only thing of value, this would explain the rise in people buying gold………hmmm

    • Jack says:

      I also recommend slingshots but they take some serious practice. Ammo – rocks, steel ball bearings, nuts & bolts, marbles, and much more.

  7. pat says:

    also to include a way out of town, due to people will want what you have, you are better off away from people or with a group that have the same goal. make sure that you take tools that are non electric. I have been saving old tools and saws of yesteryear. good enough for grampa good enough for me

    • Jack says:

      I’m with you about collecting old tools. IF no electricity, a hand-cranked drill could come in handy. IF they have wooden handles, sometimes you can ‘treat wood’ with liquid products to preserve and protect their current condition. You can also search for videos by “The Paracordist” – he demonstrates ways to cover old tool handles for a better grip. .

  8. [...] A Wise Man Teaches: Knowledge Without Action Is Wasted.   Step One can be challenging – self evaluation.  Honestly analyze your family’s situation.  What do you know skill wise?  Martial arts, animal skinning, fire making, etc?  could your family survive after a critical event if the Utilities are gone?  Your family’s sanitation disposal will be one of your major problems.  You need a plan.  Start with a Survival Checklist at Emergency Planning List.  [...]

    I was raised Mormon & learned about food preservation. Although I didn’t have a full years necessities, what I had sure saved my life when my home burned down 15 months ago. It’s a good thing I accustomed my body to live off what I had in storage, like wheat berries, whole oats, etc. I need to know about your solar battery chargers, where do I go? I also have a couple suggestions for you. First, you can use diabetic lancets for several purposes, like removing splinters, lancing abcesses or creating an opening. They are sterile, cheap and disposable. Second, I am a retired surgical nurse. To restore circulation in a ruptured artery, use a soda straw and dental floss. I keep the straws from Subway that are wrapped in plastic and sealed to keep clean. While the tourniquet is on, you tie a slip knot in the dental floss and put it loosly on the artery on the patient’s heart end. Then insert a piece of the straw into the artery about 2″, tighten the slip knot around the straw; then repeat it on the other end ( receiving end of the artery). When you securely tie off the thread, slowly release the tourniquet. You should have restored circulation. Be sure to carry very sharp blades or a scalpel, Skin is really tough to cut and will dull a blade easily. I carry an Exacto knife kit with refills. I have also familiarized myself with the natural herbs in the area and how to use them for health purposes. I now carry a reference book in my truck’s emergency kit. Thanks for the info, hope my sharing helped you!

    Another tip is to back up all important documents (Social Security cards, passports, birth certificates, bank Acct info, etc) on a flash drive that allows encryption although most do now. Given its not feasible to keep these documents in your gear, as you need them in the normal world, but if you have all these documents backed up on a flash drive stored in your gear it will make life a little easier to rebound after the dust settles and all of your belongings are quite possibly destroyed, lost, etc. I have a 7 and 11 year old and have found they can learn just about any survival skill just as easy as any adult. Take them camping and use the opportunity as a fun bonding experience to teach them skills such as responsible firecraft, navigation, and first aid. Pick up a Boy Scout handbook, there is a lot of good info in there that you will likely learn from as well as you teach them the skills that may save their lives one day. As a father my worst fear is not being near or able to protect or help them if something happened, atleast I know my kids could start a campfire, cook, use basic first aid skills, and navigate to safety on their own if something were to happen. Remember, survival isn’t convenient. It won’t happen when you expect it, when everyone is together and well rested.
