During a disaster, there will likely be power outage, no telecommunication service and no water running down from your tap and most importantly, you might have to relocate to a bug-out home or shelter in place. This is the biggest factor that determines how well you and your family will cope during the crisis period.

This article gives you tips on how you will stay safe and comfortable in your home during a disaster. It is often advisable to have a safe location available before any disaster occurs. There is nothing wrong in having a bug-out shelter but never get to use it. Remember, motorists rarely use their fire extinguishers but they still put it in their car.

Location and Shelter

Drinking Water

Washing Clothes and Bathing

Food Storage


Stocking food for livestock animals and pets

Firewood and Fuels (cooking and heating)

Guns and Ammunition

Indoor Lighting


You need to spend a night in the location to see if it is habitable for you and your family. You will need to find a way to insulate it to keep the occupants warm. What if you have a safe location but cannot get there because the disaster has affected all the reasonable routes? This is why the most important aspect of creating a survival location is to have the safest and shortest means to the place.

The article also talked about how to be in supply of natural water and how to do your laundry too. When your shelter location already has room for laundry and water supply, aren’t your chances of survival already high? You need to take the time to read through to get all the information and remember to share it immediately.
