Survivehive has emphasized again and again how disasters can happen at any given moment. With that in mind, tune in for some critical SHTF survival tips. If you aren’t aware, when preppers say SHTF—it pretty much means worst case scenario. So let’s say that disaster strikes, earthquakes, aliens, civil unrest, whatever—what do you do? Sometimes just thinking about it doesn’t help. You need to prepare. In order to be ready before stuff hits the fan, buckle up and take notes, it may just save your life.
Get fit and learn self-defense
When things are horribly bad, you must assume that everyone else has hostile intent. If you’re plump, that may suggest that you’re an easy mark and that it would be easy to pry your supplies off of you. Learn how to defend yourself.
Build and maintain your BOB
This refers to your Bug-Out Bag. It should always be where you are—your car, your house, or your office. You never know when you’ll need it.
Brush up on survival skills
A disaster scenario may force you to live out in the wild for a few days. Don’t be helpless. Learn how to build a shelter, start a fire, and stay hidden. Stealth is important if you want to avoid unnecessary altercations.
If you’re in the city, get out ASAP
If you’re in one, that’s the last place you want to be in. if you spot any signs of potential danger brewing, grab your BOB and get out. Go visit a relative somewhere who’s not in another city or go to your bug-out location.
Find an evacuation route
Prepare at least 4. It’s not something that you can just Google Maps and be done with. It’s something that you need to time and test for efficacy. Time is a luxury you may not have. So it’s best to get out in the shortest amount of time possible—however, if that’s the route that most people take, AVOID IT. Use another route.
Invest in diesel vehicles like a bike
If you’ve ever seen Deep Impact, you’ll remember Elijah Wood darting in and out of traffic on a dirt bike. This is one of the best ways to get around as it is small, can handle rough terrain, and doesn’t take up much gas. Cars will only clog up major thoroughfares.
These are only some tips for worst case scenario events. Tune in for future articles that expound more on SHTF survival tips.
