If doomsday ever arrives, you may have no choice but to run to the hills. But it’s far more likely that the next disaster will be one where you can shelter in place. That’s why I always encourage city dwellers to focus on urban survival skills first and wilderness survival skills later.
If you’re a new prepper and you live in the city, the first thing you should do is gather supplies to ride out whatever disaster is most likely to occur in your area (blizzard, earthquake, hurricane, etc). Jim Cobb, author of Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide, wrote an excellent article that covers the most important supplies.
Jim writes, “In most disaster scenarios, the best place for you to be is at home. That’s where the bulk of your supplies are located. You’re familiar with the area. The fact is, that’s just where you’ll be the most comfortable. Stress reduction is extremely important during a crisis and anything you can do to put your mind, and the minds of your family members, at ease is desirable.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
