Everyone should have a survival plan which covers what to do if and when a survival or preparedness situation arises.  If you do not have a plan you need to create one.  If you do have a plan; make sure it addresses the following things.  Your plan should cover all of the following; and if you haven’t thought about these issues, now is the time to do so.  

  • Do you have sufficient stockpiles of food and water?
  • How will you acquire additional supplies if the disaster is long term?
  • How will you purify your water?
  • What communications methods will you utilize?
  • How will you handle first aid situations?
  • How will you defend your location?
  • What home or bug out location security protocols are in place?
  • What weapons are available to you and how proficient are you with them?
  • Will you try and survive in place or will you bug out?
  • Will you try and survive on your own?  With your family? Or with a larger group of people?
  • What will you use for cash or barter?
  • How will you handle refugees that approach your home or bug out location?
  • What will you do for fuel?
  • How will you handle physical, mental, and emotional needs?
  • How will you handle light, noise, and sanitation issues?
  • Will you trade with others?  Will you take in any refugees or turn them away?
  • How will you handle heating, cooling, and lighting?
  • How long do you expect your current prepped supplies to last if they could not immediately be restocked?

You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at  They are really quite interesting to read if I do say so myself and they also make excellent gifts 🙂
