From preparingwithdave.com: Nine Personal Actions to Take Immediately After SHTF
This article covers those tense initial hours and days after a disaster has struck and things are coming unglued, a very good time to have some practical advice! Not only are the most important steps outlined but the potential threats are also analyzed, giving you an idea of what to do but also why you are doing it. Articles of this type are great for “gaming out” how a situation in your area could go, and I’d recommend doing that. Mentally walking through the steps of an imagined disaster could help you realize a hole in your preps (maybe you need to bugout but your only vehicle isn’t suited to offroading, for example) and what might make things easier or more comfortable. If you’re interested in being ready for those first hours of survival, definitely give this article a look.
