29 Items You Need To Be Prepared For Survival

I’m sharing 29 items you need to be prepared for survival, at the very least. Here’s the deal, this is just a start and you may or may not have any of this, or you may have a whole lot more in your preparedness preps. I don’t know about you, but the world is getting crazier each day. I teach classes about food storage and emergency preparedness to churches, subdivisions, businesses and other groups and I get booked up pretty quick. When I go teach a class, if 20 or 300 people attend and I get just one person to “get it”, I have done my job.

Water-Food Storage: In Case of Emergency

Water-food storage are two of the key things we need in case of emergency. Each time I write a post I hope to reach a few families to get them started in the quest to do what is right and be prepared for the unexpected. Sometimes the news is a bit much and some of it may be untrue, but the reality is this, people can’t depend on the government to take care of any of us.

It’s a way of life for them. Some have health issues, some just can’t seem to keep a job. I’m not judging anyone, I have never had a husband that couldn’t keep a job.

Here’s the deal, our kids or grandkids will not have to use first aid skills every day, I get it. But, we want them to be self-reliant so if we are not around they will know what to do if someone is cut, scraped or even sunburned.

College Students Need Emergency Survival Kits

I have several reasons why college students need emergency survival kits today. I have sent more than one grandchild off to college with my college first aid kit. You know when you send a child off to trade school or college, money is tight in most cases. First of all, they need to buy their books, pay tuition, and all the small expensive items they need to get set up their new apartment or dorm. I’m sure you can imagine all the fever reducers, band-aids, Neosporin, etc. that is needed when you no longer live at home. This is why I decided instead of giving money as a college student gift, I give first-aid kits and now college student emergency survival kits.
