Over the years I have written many articles, guides and tips etc on emergency
preparedness for a diverse array of natural and man made disasters. The majority of these have leaned towards the short term
or ‘now’ situation for preparedness, but what should we do if experience a major disaster and have to prepare
for the long haul? It could be months or even years – how do we prepare and survive the longer term?
Apart from the physical challenges that will confront people, there will undoubtedly
be the psychological challenges that will go hand in hand – how do we cope with such challenges?
In this new section under development, it is hoped to provide a ‘rough
guide’ to the diverse array of both the foreseeable and unforeseeable ‘challenges’ that may confront people
under such post disaster events.
From surviving the initial shock and its after effects right through to setting
up temporary and permanent shelters and homes, how to grow and store your own food, how to survive in the ‘backwoods’
including basic bush-craft techniques and how to cope with both the demanding physical and psychological issues.
Please keep tuned in for further developments - and go to the new long term
survival section - click below
