If you’re like me, much of the information you count on is stored on your computer. However, there are times when a computer isn’t the most reliable way to keep stored information.
Households can lose electricity due to any number of reasons, at any time of the year. Computer hard drives can be ruined, losing all stored data, preparedness tips, and survival plans.
Earlier this year I recommended starting your own SurvivalMom binderjust to have hard copies of the most essential information you find online. Don’t get me wrong. I love having mountains of information at my fingertips via my computer and internet connection, but neither one is as reliable as an old-fashioned three-ring binder sitting on my bookshelf!
A reader, Bob Waldrop, passed along two websites with some helpful, practical tips for staying warm in a winter emergency, family food security, and much more. That site is here. The second site details actual plans made by Oklahoma City in a series of workshops. There are some practical ideas here, but what is more interesting, to me, is the process of putting a large scale emergency plan together. (I have no idea why they assume a household size of twelve and a dozen chickens. Maybe Bob can enlighten us.)
While you’re browsing these sites, also check out the free survival library at The Survivalist Blog.
