12 areas of preparedness for emergency survival situations prepping for beginners
hi it’s AlaskaGranny Alaska Prepper I’ve been spending
a lot of time out of my Granny Camp
which is my Alaska off-grid cabin and
thinking about all of the areas of
preparedness emergency prepping survival needs how to get started what are the must have items
I thought it would share with you the 12 areas of preparedness
that I decided I needed to concentrate
on make sure that I’m fully prepared for any emergency situation
whether I’m sheltering in place staying
in my home or if I had to bug out evacuate or I
was away from home how can I make sure
that I have all the emergency survival gear items and things that I need
to take care of the responsibilities of
keeping myself and my family in safety
and well cared for no matter what comes
along the first area of emergency survival preparedness is
water we know we need to store all of
the water that we can how to store water what containers are safe to store water how to sanitize disinfect filter water you can buy water
you can buy water already in bottles set it aside have it
ready when you need it you can also
clean out some used containers and sanitize disinfect and refill those with water
refill those with water if you want to
reuse a container make sure that it’s
HDPE or has a number 2 recycle on it
that it’s food safe designed only for
food and is sturdy enough and it’s going
to last something like a milk jug is not
sturdy it’s not going to last and should
never be used just store things away the
same with like a something you’ve had a
strong odor like juices it’s almost
impossible to get rid of the flavor and
all of the bacteria from a plastic storage container something that
held some a strong liquid but you can
find things like pop bottles flavored
waters and rinse them out with hot soapy
water sterilize or disinfect containers how to sanitize purify disinfect water storage containers with bleach
after you’ve washed them well with a
teaspoon of bleach for every quart of
water swirl it all around let it sit for
a little bit
pour it out and then your container is
ready to be filled with safe water from
the tap you can set those newly filled water storage containers aside in a
cool dark dry place make sure it’s dark
because light causes bacteria to grow in
water and you don’t want
mold mildew fungus algae or any of that
growing within your water storage containers source then
check the water storage containers every six months or so dump
them out and replace them refill with fresh water if you need to
you can get some large containers to store water at the
store 5 gallon 50 gallon even store lots
of water in that depending on your space
have some water stored in a
grab-and-go container near where your
emergency bug-out supplies are so if you
had to leave in a hurry you could grab a
six pack of water and easily take it
with you learn how to filter water and
purify water have those water purification and filter supplies with
you in your emergency gear emergency survival supplies bug out bag the next area
of preparedness for emergency survival prepping is food fill your pantry
with shelf-stable long lasting foods
that are easy to open and eat foods that
are familiar to you and that your family
is willing to eat look for food items things that
are a range of foods from peanut butter
crackers cereal canned fruits meats
vegetables canned entrees and things
like soup and chili that are easy to eat
simple to prepare and foods that are they’re fast
and filling and when you get a good
supply of those food items in your prepper pantry then you may want to
consider getting some of the long-term food storage
foods such as rice beans oatmeal in
larger containers sealed in number 10 cans or even buy a
prepackaged kit of food from one of the
long lasting food companies that is
designed for the long lasting emergency
long-term food storage you’re storing
canned goods have can openers make sure
you also have some emergency food with
your bug out bag so that you have a few
days worth of emergency food if you need
to evacuate you still need to have
something that’s nutritious and ready to
include in your meal plans food for
infants and food for any pets that you
have now that you have a stockpile of
food how are you going to cook it in an
emergency emergency survival gear for cooking food prepping do you have a camping stove
something like a propane stove
of a butane stove or even a wood stove
in your house do you have a gas grill or

have some sort of an emergency or a
camping backpacking stove stock up on

bit of soap things do we have on hand at

to heat up food as well with foil packet cooking

you have secured your home that you have
nice locks that the windows can be
secured and then if something should
damage your home maybe you’re going to
need some plastic sheeting and some duct
tape to put over a window that’s broken
maybe you need some plywood some hammer
and nails things to make sure that your
house is secure your home should have
been damaged in some sort of a weather
or natural disaster event what if you
had to leave your home bug out evacuate maybe then you
need to think about having a tent life bivy life tent from Go Time Gear maybe
you know of a bug-out location make sure
you have lots of cash on hand so that
you could actually go and stay in a
hotel know where you would go in the
event of an emergency just make a plan
where could you go that was ten miles
away a hundred miles away 200 miles away
and think of some choices for where you would bug out or evacuate before you
need to figure out where to go make a
plan for bugging out in an emergency survival shtf situation how you would get to those
places if you have pets know where you
could bring them or where you could
leave them safely so that you could
shelter somewhere else there are always
hotels campground that allow you to
bring your
but if you can’t find one of those maybe
there’s a trusted friend or relative who
would watch your pet for you while you
went to a place that did not allow you
to bring your pet never leave them
behind they remember the family and they
deserve to be cared for
as much as you do if you’ve ever had
your water stop working for any length
of time emergency survival situation planning for sanitation hygiene needs
sanitation becomes a problem right away
consider getting a portable toilet and
some supplies so that you can use it get
some plastic bags get some plastic
gloves kitty litter hand sanitizer wet
wipes and always a big supply of toilet

  1. The picture of food for your BOB looked like mine, minus the raisins. Yuck! I didn't see any Knorr Sides or any candy (an important food group to relieve stress😉), but then it was a quick shot. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I have water containers I have stored in my utility building and should be replacing that water soon since it has been in those containers for awhile. I have canned food which I can use and do have to buy new rice, and other dry grains to store since the ones I already have is over a year old.

    I just ordered a new cookware set I am going to put in my backpack, and just ordered a new sleeping bag, liner, and is waiting for other items I ordered from Amazon, and Wal-Mart. If I do have to go somewhere else my dog, and cat will be with me and if they can't stay in a hotel/motel then we all will be sleeping in my vehicle. My home and old home have many other supplies and is what I may need. My medicines will be with me and I take care of myself. If I have to leave my home the things I can't take with me is my garden equipment, and lawn equipment also.

  3. I don’t know if anyone else knows about this, or if it works for anyone else. Whenever I get acid indigestion, if I nibble on two of those sailor boy pilot bread crackers, it stops the acid as well as if I’d drank some sodium bicarbonate, or taken a tums.
    I just discovered your channel a couple days ago, so I’m having a great time catching up! You really have a lot of good info, and realistic, unlike so many fantasy prepper channels!

  4. I prefer water stored in glass and filtered. I keep several in the frig and can filtered water😁

  5. I would rather have 2 water filters than to have a ton of water, One personal filter and one berky water filter, Takes up less space and you don't have to worry about water going bad
