Emergency Survival Supplies the Family Lifeline

Author: Administrator
Emergency survival supplies are one of the best ways to prepare yourself and your family for any type of unexpected disaster. The one thing that you can count on is that the future will be filled with uncertainties. Troubling economic matters, armed conflicts, earthquakes, typhoons and hurricanes are just a few of the problems that are making news in the headlines today.

Instead of just reading about potentially devastating scenarios you can prepare yourself and your family to face the future, no matter what may come your way. With emergency survival supplies you will be able to provide the essentials for the members of your family.

Many people simply fail to realize that even a small hurricane, flood or earthquake can wreak havoc and mayhem. When a natural disaster takes place the first things to be affected are generally the infrastructures that we so often take for granted.

Telephones, electricity, natural gas and water supplies can be disrupted for days, weeks or even months at a time. You may not understand how important that drinking water really is until it is no longer readily available when you try to fill a glass from the kitchen faucet.

Hospitals, clinics and even routine first aid assistance are among the first of our resources to become strained beyond their maximum limits. This means that it is up to you to handle those scrapes, cuts, bruises and an assortment of other physical injuries.

You should be aware of the basic emergency survival supplies that should be included in your family survival kits. This will allow you to be properly prepared in the event that a catastrophic event suddenly turns your world upside down.

Water is the most necessary of all items, and the one essential supply to have available for any emergency. You should always make sure that you have water on hand. In the event of an emergency you would need approximately a gallon of water per day for each individual in your family. As a rule of thumb consider stockpiling 7 gallons of water per family member. This would be a week's worth of water for drinking and hygiene purposes.

Ready to eat meals similar to the MRE supplies used by the military are going to be among the easiest and most convenient for you to use. Packages of oatmeal, soup mix and instant milk will be useful.

Do not forget to include a Swiss knife, bottle opener and can opener among the supplies in your survival kit. You could also use a few bowls, cups and eating utensils. Matches and butane lighters should also be included among your emergency survival supplies.

There are small emergency first aid kits that you can purchase and add to your emergency survival supplies. First-aid essentials should include antibiotic ointment, gauze wrap, hydrogen peroxide, soap, tweezers, rubbing alcohol, bandages and some aspirin/Tylenol/Motrin. Consider adding some allergy pills, razor blades, thread, dental floss and a few sewing needles to your survival kit. All of these items will prove to be quite useful in the face of almost any catastrophic emergency.

Flashlights, a radio, some extra batteries and protective clothing such as rubber boots, ponchos and disposable gloves would also be a good idea. When you are collecting emergency survival supplies you might want to include paper towels, hand-wipes, paper bags, toilet tissue and cold weather gear for each family member.

Once you have stored all of these emergency survival supplies in a closet or basement you will be prepared for any emergency. Make sure that you organize the items to make it easier for you to quickly locate what is needed at a moment's notice.
