I received a new book, from Jim Cobb, about creating an Urban Emergency Survival Plan and it is very informative for those who live in major cities or the suburbs. It is important to realize that we live in an unpredictable world, where weather as well as man-made disasters can happen at a moment’s notice. You can count on your local firefighters, emergency responders and police to do all they can to help your community, but in a major emergency their resources will quickly be overwhelmed. It will take them time, maybe even days, to get to you and these responders only have so many supplies to go around. Other chapters cover the topics of emergency water, food storage, sanitation, first aid, shelter and bugging out in great depth. Stay safe in the city with the book Urban Emergency Survival Plan: Readiness Strategies for the City and Suburbs is a great addition to your preparedness library.
This Urban Emergency Survival Plan Book Giveaway is open to any resident who is 18 years of age or older who lives in one of the 48 US Contiguous States.
If you want to learn how to survive in an urban emergency as a prepper, then this article is for you. At the end of this article you should be able to know how to react and what to do whenever disaster strikes, especially in the urban area. The recent shooting in France brings forcibly to our awareness the many forms of man-made emergency situations that can happen, especially in urban settings. Many people (preppers) seem to be well prepared for situations that are possible in the wild but lack the necessary skills and knowledge to survive in an urban emergency. The question we should all ask ourselves is this as a prepper: what would I have done if I were to be present during the shooting in France? Are there things that could have been done to increase your chances of survival before the attacks?  What could have been done to increase your odds of survival while the attack is going on?  In what way can you be sure of your safety immediately after the attack? These and many more questions should be answered if you want to be absolutely sure of survival in urban situations. The France shooting emphasizes the importance of being alert and mindful of your surroundings at all times because you never know when the shit will really hit the fan and you need to have your wits together. Being alert at all times and making plans to escape from the danger zone in an urban emergency is an excellent skill to possess by a prepper. If you happen to be travelling or out of your own turf when disaster strikes, then the rules will be a different ball game.
Such situations are also not the best time to be moving around with a back pack full of hardware as you may be arrested by the police who should have been engaged in searching for the real culprits and maintaining law and order. In the case of electricity failure, you should have other sources of power that you can use to generate heat and lighting.
If you live in a high risk area especially in terms of natural disasters, Having a ready packed bug out bag which is constantly maintained and that contains the essentials of survival (even if temporarily) is a good aspect of prepping.
