Suggested Projects

  1. Make a list of the medical emergencies you could foresee occurring during an emergency and research (in depth) the preventative measures, treatment and care.
  2. Take an advanced first aid or medical course. Many of the preparedness/survival expos going on offer these sorts of classes. Also doing a simple Google search of “survival courses” will provide you with a long list of region specific courses being offered.
  3. Do inventory and keep an organized list of medical items you have on hand.
  4. Continue to invest in medical emergency manuals and books in order to familiarize yourself with up-to-date medical information.
  5. Be proactive and create first response packs for wounds in order to expedite the emergency care process.
  6. If childbirth during a sudden emergency is a possibility, research and learn the correct procedure in how to assist in the birth as well as ways to keep the baby and mom healthy

Prepper’s Tip

  1.  Rather than purchasing two of the same tools, consider investing in spare parts for the tools such as extra blades, sharpening tools and lubricants such as WD-40 or Vaseline.
  2. Ensure the tools you purchase are of good quality.
  3. Be mindful of your dependence on the grid and find ways to offset it.
  4. Purchase resources that may help you learn skills like building structures, masonry, installing wells or creating shelters that may be needed in a long-term disaster. (For example, an outdoor solar shower would do wonders for morale during a long-term emergency.)
