It pays to have emergency food rations in your home in the event of things like: bad weather conditions where you can’t get out for a few days, economic crises, or even losing your job or a lot of other things that life tends to throw at you.
Bad Weather Conditions
Think of really bad snow where it can be several feet high and you can’t get out of your home for a few days to get to the shops and even if you could then the shops could be closed as well or completely out of supplies. We never seem to be prepared for severe weather and as you know it can bring the country to a standstill. Also there is the risk of flooding and we really should be prepared for just about everything, so that is one reason why it pays to have emergency food at hand.
Over the past few years and the collapse of Greece and the problems with the other EU countries then you can see that no one is safe from currency collapses. You may think that you have security but this is no longer the case. The financial world is so complex that no one really knows what is happening so it really pays to keep emergency food at home. Just knowing that you have something there to help out in bad times makes you feels safer.
We all want to think that we are going to keep our jobs but this is not always the case. Anyone and everyone is at risk these days from CEOs to any employee at any level and we can be laid off at any time or even replaced. These things happen and it’s best if you can put some emergency food away to tide you over until you can find another job because of the current employment market.
Storage of Emergency Food
Food and water are the most important things to keep in any emergency survival pack. You should always aim to have at least a 2 day supply of food in anticipation of bad weather so as to avoid any panic buying from trying to buy from depleted stocks in shops. You should store enough really for around a week in case of any emergency.
When you need to evaluate a food kit then you should take note of the whole number of meals that are included in the pack. There are ones that have a 90 meals emergency food pack which is a 3 month supply, but that is only based on one meal a day. If you want to plan for an emergency situation that will last for a week or more then you should be calculating for at least two balanced meals a day for each person. There is a 72 Hour Emergency Food Kit which is ideal for 3 days. Or you can get the emergency food pack that is for 1 month.
There is also the basic survival food pack supply. The 2 month survival food pack and the long life survival food pack. Next is the Water Purification Tablets and others including long life biscuits or bars that are ready to eat and glucose tablets for fast energy when needed. You can build your own emergency kit or buy it ready made, the choice is yours. You can also purchase the book called “Prepper’s Pantry” which gives you the survival guide to food and water storage so you can get a good idea on what you should store.
Disaster can strike at any time and you never know what is going to happen, that is why it is essential that you have some emergency food rations in your home. That way you don’t have to worry about things as you can rest safe in the knowledge that you are prepared if the worst should happen.
Just think if the electricity, gas, water or telephone is cut off for a long period of time, what would you do? The Emergency services will get to you eventually but cannot do it for everyone overnight. So be prepared and keep in emergency food rations as you never know what is going to happen.
