You’ve probably been hearing a lot about urban survival and the various aspects related to it. It may even influence you to enroll in a class or go to a boot camp and get yourself some form of intensive training.
However during this time you still don’t know what SHTF actually means. SHTF stands for
. People who prepare themselves for the urban survival lifestyles and survivalists believe this is the stage when a civilization is undergoing a complete breakdown and there’s a lot of unrest possibly from threats of civil unrest, a terrorist attack, war or an epidemic.
So you were confronted with a SHTF situation and you’ve still managed to pull through with great ease. Now that the situation is going back to normal and you may have to move back into your own home. But how do you deal with this SHTF aftermath? Who gives you the guarantee that you and your family won’t still be affected?
The fact is that it is still all in your hands to see that nothing happens to you and your family. There’s a certain way of dealing with the aftermath as well. And if that way is followed, you can be rest assured that nothing can possibly happen to you. Here are a few things that you can do to ensure that you life gets back to normal after the SHTF:
1. Before the SHTF, you’ll stock up on not only necessities but also “just in case items” if you have a safe place to do so. By doing so, you’ll be securing your future and, once the SHTF ends, you’ll have a more than normal stock of things that you will need.
2. Prepare yourself for a struggle and please don’t think it will be easy as living in the woods and hunting animals and having them for dinner. The aftermath will be such that once the bullets and the stored food are gone; you’ll be going back to the basics just like our ancestors did centuries before. It’s definitely not going to be a cake walk if that’s what you’re expecting it to be.
3. You have to be self sufficient. Learn how to grow your own food, how to make compost and biogas, etc. This will help you become self sufficient and not depend on others for the basic needs of you and your family.
4. It is said that 50% of people will be dead after SHTF. So you need to ensure that you don’t catch any infectious diseases. You can prevent this from happening to you and your family by maintaining your personal hygiene and avoiding contact with infected persons.
Be self sufficient by learning how to survive after the SHTF. There’s no substitute for training in urban survival. Rest assured that your money will be well spent in the long run.
