Be Ready When It’s Time to Leave
We can prepare our homes to the point where we feel we’ll never have to leave. You can stock up on food, water, medical supplies, hide your weapons in strategic places, but what happens when your home is under attack either from a hoard of people or a much larger natural disaster?
We have to realize that no matter how prepared and ready we are, there may come a time when it’s time to leave. When you accept the fact that you may not be able to stay in your locked and loaded home under every circumstance, then you can start preparing to evacuate when the time comes.
None of us want to think about the fact that our home may be under attack from people or nature to the point where we can not protect ourselves or our family. But it can happen. So being prepared for evacuation is a much needed topic to tackle.
Everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way
Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.
Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.
