Extreme Heat – is this Doomsday?
Extreme heat has swept across the United States, making it hellishly hot on the East Coast and in the Mid-West for over a week, and now scorching the Southwest in ways we’ve never before seen. Is this extreme heat a sign that Doomsday is coming? Many people think that the answer to that question is “yes!” and are preparing for worst case scenarios – are you prepared?
With all this heat, the potential for extended power outages has increased the need to have your home stocked with all of the essentials to survive for days without the amenities that we’ve become accustomed to. We’re going to discuss the types of materials and goods that you need to have in your stock pile in order to be prepared for such situations.
Whether trying to survive a prolonged power outage in extreme heat, or preparing for Doomsday on December 21st, you need to have all of the correct emergency essentials at the ready to survive. Is your home stocked with the essentials needed in such a situation? Let’s take a look at the most important items you will need to make it through the next emergency you encounter…
Shelter for Safety
Keeping yourself safe, and others out is one of the most important aspects of surviving an emergency. You need to make sure that your doors lock securely, while still having windows with secure screens to be able to reach the outside world. Consider adding extra locks to your main entrance way. If you’re working with a traditional door, add deadbolts. Many will be working with tents if they cannot stay in their primary residence – in which case additional locks for your tent will at the very least slow other intruders from getting into your secure dwelling.
Make sure to have portals to the outside world as well. We suggest secure screens to be able to communicate with those passing by your shelter, which will also allow you to determine if those passerby’s are friends or foes.
Food for Survival
Emergency Preparedness Food is one of the key essentials needed to survive any doomsday type scenario. Being able to survive for weeks, months, or even a year without the luxury of a grocery store and traditional cooking methods will put you in a good position to make it through an extreme emergency. Survival is dependent on food and water, so make sure to always have a stock pile of non-perishable emergency nourishment on hand at all times.
Weapons for Security
Your stock pile of food and water is going to be a target for others who weren’t as prepared for an emergency, such as December 21st, as you are. Weapons for security are a great idea, to help keep potential intruders from stealing your emergency supplies. Guns, knives, stun guns and the like are all effective tools that you can use to keep yourself, and your supplies safe. Stock up now!
You can’t expect cell phones to be reliable in cases of extreme emergencies, or after December 21st. We suggest finding alternative communication devices to use in the case of Doomsday or an extended power outage. Traditional battery powered walkie talkies will work just fine. Make sure to have back up batteries, and multiple pairs of them to be able to communicate over short ranges.
Do You Need a Doomsday Bunker?
Having a Doomsday Bunker isn’t the worst idea. While you may never end up needing something with such security, having the insurance and peace of mind in case you do isn’t a bad idea. There are doomsday bunkers for sale all around the United States in case you’re thinking of making the purchase to keep your family safe, and be able to properly store food. The keys to surviving doomsday are easy to read, but harder to implement. Don’t wait! Get started building your stock pile now!
