While many people prepare for TOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it), in actual day-to-day life, your preparedness scenarios are going to be pretty common things that happen to a lot of people but which many people don't prepare ahead for. Of course you, because you are interested in preparedness, are ready to deal with these common problems including...
- Today a train derailment sparked a massive fire. What you do: have your bug out bag ready so you can evacuate at a moment's notice.
- Attacks on substations seem to be ramping up. What you do: have multiple methods to power your house (and test these methods before you need them).
- Today it is cold AF across the northeast. What you do: prepare way before cooler fall weather hits so in the midst of winter, you will be prepared for any freak cold snaps.
- A guy fell off a cliff and died while filming a TikTok video. What you do: situational awareness and spatial awareness are your top priorities always. Also, you pretty much eschew social media.
- The Tyre Nichols case has been all over the news recently. What you do: you are obviously aware that police brutality can be an issue but common sense and courtesy will get you safely out of most situations.
- Road rage cases are also on the rise and in the news on pretty much a daily basis. What you do: deescalate and/or avoid road rage incidents which could end with fatal results.
- Ditto "self defense" claims that clearly aren't self defense situations. What you do: as a responsible gun owner, you do what you can to avoid using your firearm unless absolutely necessary (and you make sure you have an iron-clad self defense case lest you spend the next several years of your life in court and/or in prison).
- More than half the American population can't cover a $1000 expense with savings. What you do: as a responsible prepper, you ALWAYS have an emergency fund.
- In another survey, it seems that many young people lack basic home maintenance skills which were common for kids to learn in generations past. What you do: learning basic home maintenance skills can be as easy as watching some YouTube videos and a bit of practice. Needless to say, these sorts of skills can be used in everyday life and in emergency situations.
- I probably don't need to to anyone at this point that food prices have gone crazy. What you do: as preppers, food security is often our top priority.
