While people will look twice and also wonder twice when they hear or the words ‘urban survival’. People usually associate the words ‘survival’ with a rainforest in the Amazon with anacondas and huge alligators surrounding you, or maybe being stranded in the savannah with lions after your blood, or even being stuck in the middle of Alaskan icebergs with a pack of wolves circling you. But for those who saw, experienced or heard about the many natural disasters that have been in the increase in recent years, you would understand that when disaster strikes it does not care whether you are in the middle of an important meeting or taking a shower. Most of the time disaster strikes, you will be in an urban environment.
So for those who live in cyclone zones or flood and tsunami zones, here are some gears to keep with you in easy-to-reach places for when the time comes for you.
Water is one of the primary concerns no matter where you are. Even if you could go without food for days, water is something you need to survive along with oxygen. In cases of the urban environments freshwater is easy to find. But when an earthquake or tsunami strikes, there freshwater sources get contaminated. So your best bet will be to find water from plants as they usually have the xylem with water transport and trees usually filter water through their roots. So buy a survival grade water filter or chemical water cleansing kits and keep them with you. These are a must have in your concrete trailer pump capable of being pulled by even modest-sized vehicles too.
