There must be a million articles about the things you should do after the shit hits the fan, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an article about things NOT to do… until now. I really enjoyed reading this article by Bob from Preppers Will and I’m happy to share it with you guys.
The great thing about this article is I can actually see people–myself included–making some of these mistakes. I’m the kind of person who is often reluctant to ask for help. So if something were to go wrong with my survival plan during a disaster, I would be very tempted to lie to my wife and say, “Everything is fine, don’t worry, I got this.” Confidence is great, but not when you truly need help (see #4).
Another thing I could definitely see people doing is declining government help (#6). I understand why some people are wary of the Federal government, but most of the people in departments such as FEMA are just working joes doing their jobs. They don’t care about taking your rights or supplies away. They just want to distribute food and water like they were told, and it would be a huge mistake to decline their help.
The article begins, “It is not a matter of if but when you will have to face the consequences of a disaster. Thousands of people are affected every year by natural disasters such as tornadoes, floods and super storms. Not to mention that there are even man-made disasters that can drastically change your way of life. If you manage to survive the initial impact of the disaster, here is what you shouldn’t do after SHTF.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
