10 tips to survive doomsday

Ten Tips to Survive Doomsday
Preppers "top ten" list of how to survive an apocalpyse

A mantra in the prepping community on survival is the rule of
three: you can survive three minutes without air, three days
without water, and three weeks without food.  Those are the top
three considerations for survival; however, to expand this
concept we can illustrate the rule of ten (the top ten
considerations for surviving doomdsay).

Rule of Ten: Top Ten Considerations for Surviving Doomsday
The list of ten areas to survive doomsday are...

1. Air.  
You can't have your health without air. Pandemics, volcanic
eruptions, radation or chemical warfare may affect the air you
breath. Victims of fire are subject to smoke inhalation. After a
building collapses, there will be dust. A prepper can take
measures to minimize the risk:
  • In a fire, you can improvise by wetting a bandanna with
    water to help filter out smokey air.
  • In a pandemic situation, you can secure your homestead
    through a quarantine from the outside world, lining windows
    with plastic sheets and duct tape. Further, family members
    can wear aNIOSH N95 Respirator Dust Mas, as pictured
    immediate right. Theserespirators filter out many chemicals
    and are recommended for use against a pandemic (bird flu).
  • To guard against radition and chemical attacks, you can
    equip your family with a gas mask.

2. Water.
Assuming you're breathing for the moment, water is the most
urgent of emergency preparedness areas to concentrate to help
you survive. You'll need more water than you think to survive
doomsday. A family of four needs 270 gallons of water, according
to Utah State University, for a three-month supply (90 gallons of
water PER PERSON = three-month supply). You'll also need to
store water for reconstituting dried foods (cooking pastas, rice
and beans), cleaning dishes and utensils, and providing adequate
hygiene, along with water intended for drinking. Remember also
your pets, the livestock, and garden. Get hydrated!



  • Get a fire hydrant wrench! Pictured right, the Dixon fire
    hydrant also will come in handy to provide a neighborhood
    with water for an emergency if necessary.

2. Food.
Back to the rule of three, a three-month supply of food is bare
minimum for a survival plan. Newbies will find it easiest to first
gather shelf stable foods that they can buy at the grocery stores.


  • Advanced preppers also will learn much from the pioneers
    who forged the American Northwest. Discover the pioneer
    provision list.

4. Shelter/location.
The best prepper location is your homestead because you already
know the lay of the land and you can hide your food and secure
the contents; however, the day may come when absolutely
necessary to bug out.

5. Fuel for fire.

6. Gear.
Gear up for leaving home, communicating with the outside world,
and defending the homestead. Here are the
survival items to
own.


  • Communications gear: To some communications is gear:
    just buy a two way radio and a hand-crank radio and all is
    well. To others emergency preparedness goes beyond
    communications gear. it means getting a HAM license.


7. Security.
Security goes beyond bullets. Defending the homestead means
you'll know self defense

8. Skills.
Preppers must continually educate themselves on new products,
new ideas and develop new skills. Here is a
list of prepper skills.

9. Health.
You're nothing without your health. Be sure to have regular
checkups with your physician and dentist, while these are still
available.

10. Faith in yourself is the ultimate survival tool!

survival psychology.
