We All Need an Emergency Preparation Plan… Here is One for You!

November 6, 2012 by Healthyhank


What does it take to be a self survivalist?  It takes more than just supplies and information; it takes a mindset that will take us out of the ‘box’ that we live in and enter into an open minded place that will not be satisfied with status quo…  Know one thing; we are on our own!

When you evaluate emergencies of various sorts we see patterns that seem to always reoccur.  The common risk elements are usually related to FEAR!  Fear of the known and the unknown…

Fear can be replaced with calm/peace when you are prepared and trained.  Knowledge will help however, without the experience of a successful or even failed event you will never know how you will respond/react!

It is critical for you all to know that you MUST practice and plan for difficult events.  When you see the results of how most people have prepared for disasters you can see why this process should be taken seriously. 

Where do you start?  Take a blank piece of paper and draw a line down the middle top to bottom.  List the weaknesses on the left and the strengths on the right.  Then think about a scenario where you will NOT be able to leave your home for three weeks…

List the various ingredients of your strengths and weakness’ and you will have a good picture of how you could fare.  The goal would be to NOT have to rely on Government agencies help during the first weeks of a challenge.

My list starts with personal safety, if someone attacks me and my family it won’t matter if I’m getting ill/sick.  The question is what will work for you?  Do you have most of these items?

Survival Hand Book                                     Protection

Clothing                                                       Water

Food                                                             Medicine

Home Pharmacy                                          Cash/Barter

Valuable Papers                                         Power                                                                                                 

Vehicle                                                          Tent/Tarp                                                       

Sanitation                                                     Tools

This is a broad list of categories and I will elaborate on somewhat – remember more of these items  on hand [bartering] is better.


Firearms and ammunition, knives, baseball bats, wasp/hornet spray [gives you 20 feet of protection], mace, sling shots, fire extinguishers, safe rooms, lights/lamps, axes and hatchets, battery or crank radio, whistles, walkie talkies.


Warm clothes of every kind [wool], rubber boots, work boots, blankets.


[1 gal per person per day], water filters, Clorox bleach [1:9 bleach/water as a disinfectant, 16 drops bleach to gallon water].


Nutrition [Emergen-C packets are excellent], MRI’s, dried 10# food cans [do not buy soy protein isolates!] Emergency Essentials  very good source of flash dried foods, propane with heater head/cook stove, fuel, solar oven, hand can openers, garbage bags [many], dried milk, salt, sugar, rice, beans, wheat, coconut oil [cooking and eating], garlic, spices, baking supplies, flour, yeast, honey/syrups, baby supplies, charcoal, liter fluid, garden seeds [non-GMO], cups, plates, utensils.


Individuals who need medicine need to pay special attention to having extra prescriptions on hand.

Home Pharmacy:

This is critical.  Baking soda, Nascent iodine, apple cider vinegar, ‘hot’ cayenne pepper, coconut oil, learn about Urine Therapy [free and could save your life, i.e. if you had a poisonous bite or nut allergy, put drops of your urine on your tongue about ½ minute after bite, the two lymph nodes in the lower jaw/mouth will evaluate the challenge/need and tell the body to create the antidote!], toxin remover [powdered zeolite can also be used as a wound healer], distilled water, emergency bandages [large assortment], knife, scissor, fire starting stone/flint, waterproof matches, candles, blankets, warm clothes.


It’s important to have as much small denomination money on hand, money orders, barter items can include; toilet paper, candy, powdered milk, flour, lighter fluid.

Valuable Papers:

Picture ID, passports, licenses, copies of utility bill, car registration [to prove your residence], water proof bags to protect.


Solar charging unit, generators, fuel, flash light batteries of all sizes [buy furthest-out ex-dates], propane tanks with ‘heater’ heads, fire wood [dried – 6 months old].


Always have your vehicle with at least half full tank, provides shelter, and you probably can’t go far anyway.

Temporary Housing:

Tents [pop up and/or large], large tarps and poles, stakes, nails, rope/twine, spikes, mosquito coils/repellent, knives, duct tape [lots], garden tools, axe, sledge hammer.


Large garbage bags, portable toilet, toilet paper, male and female hygiene items, Kleenex, paper towels, garbage cans – with wheels if possible, duct tape [lots], portable showers/toilet, soap, cloth, toilet paper, feminine hygiene, clothes pins.
