One of the problems with coaching families on how to design a home survival system is that every family is different. They have very different priorities, different plans, different skill-levels, different needs, and different budgets.
We think the single best way to develop a home backup plan is immersion: pick a time, and actually try (as a family) living without electricity, running water, or being able to leave the house. In a single 24-hour period you will develop a keen sense of your family's preparedness-level. Continuing on from there into a second or even third day, you will deepen your appreciation and understanding of truly adequate home-preparedness. Use our Preparation Checklist and closely and honestly scrutinize what you HAVE and what you NEED. Then proceed to the 'Design a system' page below, and select everything on your list, all assembled in one place for your convenience (and comfort!).
Evaluate your home survival systems:
- Food systems
- Water systems
- Energy systems
- Lighting systems
- Survival gear
Know what types of disasters you are preparing for (and are most likely to encounter). But realize that in this day and age, it pays to be prepared for almost ANY type of threat, anticipated or not. We find that most families do not store enough drinkable water, do not have easy-to-prepare meals, have almost no way of keeping their refrigerator running (so they are forced to prepare--or lose--their food), don't have energy back-up systems available like solar chargers (much less solar generators), and many of our customers report that they can't run gas-powered generators for various reasons, and so they lack adequate energy resources. Families rarely have a working port-a-potty, do not have proper breathing protection, and are poorly prepared for having to "air-tight" their homes (per FEMA guidelines, with duct tape, etc). The list goes on.
Again, we suggest trying to conduct a home survival system test. It will show you what you need, and help you prepare more fully if your electricity or water services are lost, or if you are forced to "self-quarantine."
Remember, when we give in-home presentations, when we are allowed to shut off the electricity-breaker to the home before we begin the presentation and then give our presentation in the dark, we find customers almost always take these topics MUCH more seriously. Losing your services creates urgent concerns, so don't be complacent.(close)
