Post-apocalypse gearYou woke up one day and learned that the zombies have taken over the city. The police are defeated, the undead occupy the hospital, communication lines are down—you’re practically on your own. How would you survive?

Unless you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, this scenario may be wildly out of touch with reality on your book. But, in this day and age, it feels like this sort of events may happen in the near future. The Illuminati conspiracy, terrorism, war, global warming-related disasters—the list goes on. You can’t really blame anyone who feels that a period of unrest or cataclysm is just around the corner.

Fully convinced or not, you owe it to your family to be ready if worse comes to worst. But can something really prepare you for something like this?

While there’s no training for being a prepper, answering these three questions helps you become a responsible one:

What Are the Possible Dangers Out There?

Depending on the type of event, the hazards may vary. Generally, running out of supplies, protection, the weather, and even other people are your biggest concerns. In addition, gas, impassable roads and your physical limitations may compromise whatever plans you have.

Where’s the Best Place to Hide?

To bug in or to bug out? That is the question. There’s actually no straight answer to this, as it’s a case-to-case basis. There are plenty of considerations you have to balance to make a sound decision.

What’s the Ideal Lifespan of Your Supplies?

By all means, the longer the better. Buy food storage kits and other essentials that can last for over 25 years if you could. Since there’s a plethora of emergency product choices at your disposal, the ones that can “outlive” you are a smart purchase.

No matter how improbable alien invasion or giant earthquakes are, nothing beats being prepared. Answers these questions to help make your survival plan ironclad.
