Survival Guide - How to Survive a Nuclear Meltdown or Nuclear Power Plant Emergency

The partial nuclear meltdown in Fukushima has made it very clear that nuclear facilities are NOT 100% safe. Approximately 3 million people within the USA live within 10 miles of a nuclear power plant and if you’re one of them, it would be wise to make preparations for the small chance that you may one day experience a nuclear emergency.

Urban Survival Guide to Water

Water Born Diseases

Water (second to oxygen) is our most important nutrient during a survival situation, especially in hot areas where you’d rapidly lose water due to perspiration. Our bodies (depending on environment) can survive a maximum of roughly three days without the intake of water. This is assuming you’re at sea level with a moderate room temperature and a relative humidity. A typical person will lose about 2 to 3 liters of water per day in normal conditions but depending on the size of the person, physical exertion and temperature they could lose much more. If you were to factor in the conditions usually found in a survival or disaster situation, you could be losing as much as 4 to 6 liters! Cold and hot environments both significantly effect your survivability and you’re water intake will have to be increased. Read more »

Staying Warm Post SHTF and Understanding Heat Loss

Staying Warm Post SHTF and Understanding Heat Loss

In cold temperatures the body burns extra calories to keep your body warm. Survival is all about energy expenditure, if you maintain a healthy internal temperature you conserve energy and you’ll be able to use that energy for more practical activities. Survivors must do their best to conserve as much energy as possible while still doing what’s necessary to survive. If you over exert yourself, you’ll lose calories (energy) and sweat which can eventually lead to chilling. If you become too cold, your body and mind will not function properly. In a cold weather environment you body temperature is every thing. Keep this in mind. Read more »
