Urban Survival Techniques Thriving In A Chaos-Infested City
Surviving in the city terrifies me. There are simply are a lot of people crammed into small spaces. But that's precisely why I prepared. Rather than running away from your anxieties, confront them.
Let's begin by defining what Urban Survival is and isn't. Dependent on who you ask, the definition of urban survival varies slightly. Many people interpret it to mean “urban survival and safety tactics,” often known as “street smarts.” However, for this discussion, I will define it as follows:
The knowledge, techniques, and ability to survive a large-scale, long-term calamity in a highly-populated metropolitan setting (even if only for a few days).
Being able to survive in the guts of the beast means being able to survive in the city. Surviving a catastrophic event in the centre of a hazardous city necessitates an entirely different perspective. To stay alive, you'll also need a set of survival skills, equipment, and plans.
You may have a family member who lives or works in one of these 146 populated counties, even if you don't. Perhaps you visit your children, friends, or relatives in a nearby high-density population metropolis regularly.
The bottom line is this:
Do you have the urban survival abilities and knowledge to conceal and survive if SHTF and you reside in a city or are only visiting for a short time? You may be forced to stay for a few days or weeks. Do you know how to navigate such a situation successfully? The survival strategies used in the city differ significantly from those used in the wild. Both should be learned. As a result, today, we will discuss the following subjects related to survival in the city.
Returning to Your Home When calamity hits, the priority is to return home (unless your home has been destroyed). And why is that? Because that's where you'll keep the majority of your survival gear and resources if you're adequately prepared. However, if you can't get home first, they won't help you much. You should prepare to spend time away from home if calamity strikes.
You may be. But don't take anything for granted. This assumption will assist you in preparing for such an event. That is why you must have a well-stocked emergency kit.
A BOB is a considerable backpack stored at home and contains almost every piece of survival equipment possible. After a calamity, it is utilised for survival (typically in the woods).
A “go home bag,” on the other hand, is compact, lightweight, and straightforward. You should have at least one of these bags, but many people prefer to have several in different locations. One for the car, one for the office, one for the boat, one for the recreational vehicle, and so on. A homing pack should have a variety of specific survival goods that will assist you in returning to your home base.
The point of a Get Home Bag is to help you Get Home, duh!
This essential survival equipment will give you an advantage when the world around you is in chaos while you are away from your base. Specifications for the Rendezvous Location What happens if the home base is damaged or unsafe now that you have your get-home bag? Do you have a backup meeting spot? Have you informed your family and friends about this location? You may not have the opportunity to call your relatives and friends to plan a meeting spot if you are trying to survive an urban emergency.
The children may be at school. You could be at the dentist while your partner is at work across town. It is preferable to organise ahead of time and set a meeting location. However, it must be a unique location; it will not work if everyone forgets where the meeting will be held. Monuments, schools, or a trusted friend's house are all possibilities.
