EDC Everyday Carry is essentially a prepared persons way of keeping essential items with them every time they go out.  Generally speaking you can use a small pouch and place it in a jacket pocket or a cargo pants pocket.  The pouch I use is the Condor EDC pouch which is small enough to take on the go; and holds essentials I might need such as a flashlight, spare batteries, bandaids, lens wipes, P51 can openers, lighters, mini screwdrivers, etc. etc.  I keep this with me in conjunction with my cell phone, pocket knife, keys, etc.  So if you haven’t set up a small, portable, every day carry pouch it is certainly a good idea to go ahead and do so.

Let’s face it; the average American home, condo, or apartment is not constructed with defensive capabilities in mind.  If there is a societal collapse or a complete disregard for law and order; home defense will become a primary concern for most people who choose to stay in their homes and ride out this disaster situation.  The following are some survival oriented home improvements to consider.

  • Replace all outside door locks with heavy duty deadbolts.
  • Have blackout materials ready to block light from coming through all windows to observe light discipline when needed.
  • Consider security bars and hurricane screens although they must be able to be opened by the homeowner for emergency escape.
  • Construct creative hiding places for food, spare cash, and people.
  • Create passageways and escape hatches.
  • Keep your yard equipment such as shovels, axes, ladders, etc., locked away to prevent thugs and looters from using this equipment to break into your home.
  • Install automatic or remote controlled battery powered floodlights.
  • Fence in your property.  Have trip wire and or razor wire available for deployment when needed.
  • Plant sharp, thorny bushes near and under windows.
  • Keep your vehicles with full gas tanks locked inside securely locked garages.
  • Reinforce your windows with see through security film.
  • Install a CCTV monitoring system.
  • Add noisemakers to boundary positions.
  • Implement visitor control procedures.
  • A well cared for dog makes an awesome early warning system.

If society collapses and law and order becomes non-existent; security will become a major concern.  If you have taken the time to prepare and prepped the things you will need to survive; they will do you no good if you cannot protect them from thugs and looters.  There will be no police to call, and you may be on your own, or with a small group of friends and or family; so it will be up to you to make sure you have the will and the skill to protect yourself and your survival supplies.

If you cannot defend it; then you will not be able to keep it.  This applies to food, water, medical supplies and even family members.  Remember violent crime and rape will reach epic proportions so you need to be prepared to protect yourself and the ones that you love.  The breakdown of society and collapse of law and order will make many people feel that they can do whatever they want; and many will not think twice about assaulting, raping, and murdering if they feel that there is no societal enforcement present.  So are you prepared to survive a complete societal breakdown?  The time to include such planning within your survival plan is now.

Remember that any survival or disaster scenario you might have to face such as tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, civil unrest, war, destruction, fire, storms, zombie attacks, etc., are always compounded once daylight turns to night.  With that said it is imperative that you are proficient with all of your survival gear in both the daylight hours and the night time hours.  Survival will be hard enough when you can see, and when it is dark, it only adds to the misery and the stress.  Know your gear and know how it operates, train regularly, and maintain your survival equipment.  Most of all should a disaster situation occur; you must be mentally prepared to deal with the particular scenarios which you may have to face.
