Urban Disaster Scenarios

The modern world’s metropolises are wonders, but they’re also ticking timebombs. Most major cities or urban areas don’t have enough food to go around. As soon as things get tough, you can rest assured that people will turn on you, that grocery store stockpiles will dry up, and that rioting will become a possibility.

This guide breaks down everything you need to survive an urban disaster scenario, ranging from training and practice to building a “Get Home Bag”. With this guide, you’ll learn how to get out of Dodge quickly before things get too rough.

Bushcraft Survival Skills

The art of bushcraft or surviving in the wild is key for any disaster prepper or survivalist. If you’ve never made a fire before or don’t know what tools you should put in a bug-out bag to escape from civilization, no worries.

This guide will explain each of these elements and more, starting with the tools you should gather, then proceeding into techniques and strategies to:

Wilderness Survival Skills

Building on the bushcraft guide, you’ll also need wilderness survival skills if you are ever stranded after a camping trip gone bad or if you take a wrong left turn during a hike. Knowing how to survive in the wild and make your way back to civilization is just as important as knowing how to escape a metropolitan hub before disaster strikes!

The wilderness survival skills guide explores eight common mistakes people make when they are stranded in the wilderness. More importantly, it explains how you can avoid those mistakes and how you can follow three key rules for wilderness survival and keep you and your family safe.

Tornado Survival

Surviving a tornado is more than possible with the right preparation and survival strategies. In the Tornado Survival Guide, you’ll learn how to avoid becoming a target for a tornado and how to stay cautious. In the event a tornado bears down on your home, the guide will explore how you can find a safe place for you and your family and what to do if you hit the road when a tornado hits. With luck, you won’t be caught unprepared for the worst!

Civil Unrest Scenarios

Civil unrest can be just as deadly and dangerous as a natural disaster. Riots, civil disobedience, and other general mayhem are chaotic for anyone caught in the middle of both sides.

The Civil Unrest Survival Guide has everything you need to know about:

Flash Flood Survival

Flash floods are some of the deadliest natural disasters we can experience, and they often come without much warning. You need to know how to identify an oncoming flash flood and what to do if your home or livelihood is affected.

Our Flash Flood Survival Guide will also break down what you should and should not do when affected by a flash flood in an urban or wilderness environment. It’s an excellent resource for individuals who live in urban or rural environments alike.

EMP/CME Survival

EMPs or electromagnetic pulses and CMEs or coronal mass ejection events have the capacity to completely destroy our electricity networks around the globe. Alternatively, one country or another may use an EMP attack as a precursor to more traditional warfare.

In all these cases, you need to know how to prepare for EMP/CME threats and what to do when the power goes out (and stays out for some time). This survival guide will explain more about these unique hazards and how you can insulate yourself and your family from the worst effects until electrical networks are back up and running.

Food Shortage Scenarios

Food shortages can change even the most stoic of people, and widespread food shortages may cause individuals to act erratically, rights to spread, and other major hazards to come your way. As the world population grows and severe weather patterns become more common, you need to know what to do in case a food shortage comes to your state or country.

Our Food Shortage Survival Guide will explain various scenarios that might create a food shortage as well as explore ways in which you can protect yourself from being too affected. For example, we’ll break down ways in which you can collect canned foods or grow your own food until things stabilize.

Lost In The Woods Scenarios

Getting lost in the woods is a recipe for disaster… if you don’t know how to find your way back to civilization or survive, that is. This guide will give you the tools you need to not only survive but thrive in the woods by breaking out what you should and should do and naming certain tools you should have with you if you ever go to a wilderness environment.

Mountain Survival Skills

The mountains are beautiful, but they can also be hazardous for the unprepared. They often include cold temperatures, predators, and a lack of readily available food.

FAQs

Are survival guides really necessary?

Yes. If you don’t already have the skills and tools necessary to survive on your own in the wild, survival guides are must-haves for everyone.

We all like to think that disaster won’t strike or that our lives won’t be affected. But it’s much smarter to be prepared for the worst and grateful if the worst doesn’t happen than to assume that you’ll never have to deal with a bad situation.

Are some survival skills shared between these guides?

Yes. Many of the core principles, tools, and survival techniques are just as applicable for one dangerous situation as they are for another.

That said, each survival guide contains specific tools or tips that are relevant to their designated situations. Pick the survival guides that seem most applicable to your situation, environment, or hazards and go from there.

Can I print out these survival guides to read them or keep them in my bag?

Yes! Feel free to print out the web pages for these survival guides and keep them with you. They’ll make great resources in case the power goes out but you need to refer back to a survival guide for a refresher on its key information.
