It may be time to take another look at survivalism and prepper supplies. Now, I’m not talking about building a doomsday bunker protected by booby traps. But lately we have been slapped in our faces with the rude awareness that sometimes the police aren’t available when we call. Or that we could be quarantined in our homes with no restaurants and stores all closed. Some of our readers live in areas threatened by hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes. And, lately we’ve even been hearing that even our nation’s power grid may be at risk.
So, it truly may be a responsible thing to have a month or two of dried food, and some other emergency supplies on hand should they ever be needed. So, here is our recommended list for your emergency pantry. It’s very interesting to read, and you may want to go ahead and buy some of these supplies. You may be glad you did! So, again…below is my top ten list of the best survivalism and “doomsday” preparation supplies:
First of all, start with the Augason Farms 30-Day 1-Person Emergency Food Supply. Buy one of these for each family member. This nutritious food is QSS Certified and can get you safely through social unrest, pandemic, hurricane, or man-made disaster. Contains Maple-Brown Sugar Oatmeal, Homestyle Mashed Potatoes, Cheesy Broccoli Rice, Macaroni and Cheese, Creamy Chicken-Flavored Rice, Hearty Vegetable Chicken-Flavored Soup, Banana Chips, Morning Moo’s Lowfat Milk Alternative.
Every home needs a good first aid kit, so why not go ahead and get a really good one. My recommendation is the Everlit Survival First Aid / Emergency Trauma Kit. With 250 pieces this is more than just a first aid kit. It has equipment that can help with minor injuries and even larger traumas until help arrives. And it comes packed in a really cool “backpack-ish” looking container! It’s not only great for your emergency home pantry, but also good for hunting, hiking, and outdoor adventures. Or, keep it in the car for added security on your daily commute. And, at under fifty dollars it is, in my opinion an amazing bargain!
All-in-One Emergency Solar Hand Crank Radio, Flashlight, Reading Light, SOS Alarm, Compass, and Power Bank for Cellphone Charging by PPLEE E-COMMERCE CO.,LTD. OK, I love this product because it does so many things for you in an emergency. It’s portable. It’s an emergency solar powered or hand crank powered radio. It’s a solar powered source for any USB phone or other small appliance. It has AM/FM and also has NOAA Weather Alert. It’s a five-watt LED Flashlight. It has a compass. It has a reading lamp. It has a very loud SOS alarm. Just a great product, not only for a disaster or emergency, but for camping and traveling as well. And in my humble opinion, it’s a bargain at around fifty bucks.
Everyone needs a portable home generator for those times when the power goes off. Our recommendation is the Westinghouse WGen line of generators. They are gas powered, reliable, safe, and a bit quieter than other generators. The cost effective choice for lighter use would be the Westinghouse WGen3600v Portable Generator-3600 Rated Watts & 4650 Peak Watts at around $300 dollars. And for heavier duty use, the workhorse is the Westinghouse WGen9500 Heavy Duty Portable Generator-9500 Rated Watts & 12500 Peak Watts. It’s over a $1000 dollars, but well worth it in an emergency.
