Economic Collapse And Civil Unrest: How To Be Prepared For Everything/ The Federal Government (FEMA) Recommends We All Have An Emergency Preparedness Kit In Our Car.

Okay, so you see that the situation in this country is not looking good and you are beginning to expect an economic collapse is on the horizon. You don’t want to go to the extremes of becoming a “Doomsday Prepper” but you want to take some precautions so that if / when something happens, you won’t be caught totally off guard. What do you do?

Step 1: Prepare Without Risking Any Money

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy, failing to do things we just know that we should do simply because we are worried about what others will think. If that describes you, then this plan is your answer. Instead of stocking up on Army MRE’s or expensive freeze dried survival foods, just start doubling up on your non-perishable groceries each week.

The groceries in your pantry WILL get used and if you have a couple hundred dollars invested in your food, it will appreciate faster (with the rate of inflation) than the 0.25% interest you’d get in a bank account! This is a no brainer to get you “prepping” without any risk whatsoever.

If the worst happens, you will be glad you prepared. If nothing happens, you won’t have lost a thing.

Step 2: Prepare Your Home

An economic collapse would have some of the same effects on you and your family as a really bad snowstorm. In both instances, you’d be stranded in your home, perhaps without power.

So again, prepare for this with no risk. Make a power outage plan with emergency lighting that you can justify as prudent in case of a storm or natural disaster, as well as an economic collapse that compromises utilities.

Get an inexpensive headlamp (less than $15) for every member of your household as well as a small LED lantern for each room of the house. Make sure that all the lights you buy use the same battery type and then buy a bunch of extra batteries.

Again, you are prepared for a major economic collapse and all that goes with it, but also for a storm or normal power outage.

Step 3: Prepare Your Car

The worst possible time for any emergency, disaster or crisis to hit is when you are away from the comfort and safety and supplies of your home. This is why the federal government (FEMA) recommends we all have an emergency preparedness kit in our car.

Having a good car kit will not make anyone laugh at you and is not an extraordinary measure that will turn you into a “Doomsday Prepper.” It’s just good, common sense.
