Emergency Preparedness Items for Bugging In

Bradford G.
The list author says: "Don't kid yourself, minor disasters that would interrupt your lifestyle could happen at any time. Water stops running, power goes out, snow storm, etc. I'm not talking about the end of the world, just a short disruption. You don't need to spend a ton of money, you just need some alternatives to the easy life you have when everything is working smoothly. Don't panic, buy slowly and thoughtfully. Prepare of a few days, then build up to a few weeks. Think water first, then food, then you can go buy that AR-15 you want. Here's some suggested items."
