Day After Disaster Ch 11
Key Things To Consider In An Urban Post Disaster Scenario:
Recognize your enemy. Some people will turn on you and you may have many new enemies. People will want your stuff so put on your game face.
Humans are the most unpredictable animal you will encounter. Animals are much more predictable and usually will not hunt you. Humans will act illogically and you will not know their level of training or how desperate they are.
Understand the difference between cover and concealment. Cover hides you and protects you from a projectile. It could be concrete or an engine block. Concealment hides you but does not protect you. This is an item like shrubbery or cardboard that would not stop a projectile.
Sometimes you will have to move very quickly between cover or concealment and sometimes you will have to move excruciatingly slow. Know your situation and move appropriately.
Navigating a Post Disaster Urban Environment:
Use old street signs if you can see them.
Use a trail marking system such as three bricks that you yourself have placed in a position so you can remember routes.
Use the stars, sun and moon positions.
Use natural features like mountains and rivers to direct your direction.
Tips to Surviving a Long Term Survival Situation:
Take care of yourself first. If you don’t survive you can’t help anyone.
Talk with your friends and family ahead of time and have a pre-determined meeting location.
Find and form a functional group. This can be formal or informal and may consist of friends, family, and trusted individuals.
Establish longer lasting food supplies, water supplies and shelter.
Obtain weapons for defense and hunting.
