Each week during throughout the year, you can turn on the television and watch reporters interview families who were unprepared for a natural disaster – and who lost everything.
Summer, in fact, is prime season for a host of natural disasters, whether it’s hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or simply major storms. And then there’s earthquakes … and the threat of terrorism.
Would you and your family be able to leave the house, on a moment’s notice, and survive? That’s the topic of this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio as we talk to Lisa Bedford, a survival expert who is the author of two books on the subject: Emergency Evacuations and Survival Mom.
Getting your family ready for a potential natural or man-made disaster isn’t complicated, although plenty of mistakes can be made along the way, Bedford says.
She also tells us:
- Which survival supplies are the most important — and where families should store them.
- Why it might be wrong, during a disaster, to first grab “what matters most.”
- How long families should be prepared to survive following a crisis.
- What survivalists often get wrong about “bug-out locations.”
- Where you can live, for free or at least cheap, after a disaster.
If you want to be better prepared for a disaster, or you simply want to make sure you haven’t made any big mistakes, then this week’s show is for you!
