Hey guys! Last time we were wondering if we are prepared for the eventuality of disaster with power and fuel shortages. It’s shouldn’t come as far fetched as we are indeed running out of oil. I’ll make a wild guess with the statistics I have heard and say that at this rate oil will run out in 25-30 years. Maybe less.

In any case, I’ll give you some personal advice. I’m in no way a professional on rescue or emergency care but this is pretty much common sense.

It took over a week to bring aid to some of the affected areas of the tsunami in Sendai, so you should expect the same. The only two disasters we don’t have any kind of warning are the earthquakes and tornadoes with a shorter notice. Tsunamis will give a small window of time to get to safety that you should not waste. If you are close to the coast and get hit by an earthquake, you will most likely hear a siren for a tsunami warning. If you are in your home take your survival gear and get ASAP to at least the third floor of an undamaged -concrete building-. Don’t stay in a house made of wood even if it has two floors. Find a the concrete building and stick with it until any sign of danger has passed.
Stuff that should be in a big “survival backpack” to be ready for you:

First Aid Kit:

  • Aspirins
  • Paracetamol
  • Band aids
  • Bandages
  • Stomach medicine
  • Sanitizer
  • Big package of Wet Wipes
  • Tincture of iodine
  • If you have a condition, make sure to have a week’s worth of medicine in the kit

 

Tools:

  • Scizors
  • Tape
  • Small Hatchet
  • Small Saw
  • Hammer
  • Knife
  • Rope
  • Working gloves
  • Car power adapters for your mobile devices

General:

If there’s no fuel, gas, power or wood available… how are you supposed to cook? Easy! With the sun!

Solar cooking!! (Panel-style cookers are easier to transport)
Cocina Solar, Información en español.

  • Black Pot
  • Black Pan
  • Metal Spoons, forks and knives
  • Durable plastic cups
  • As much canned food and/or other high calorie non-perishable food items (peanut butter, jams, crackers) that you can put in the bag.

Most of this should fit on a big backpack while you may have additional bag for the solar cooker and eating utensils. Get a Big Plastic Bin with latches in case you have time and means to move stuff around before/after disaster strikes. There you should put the following stuff:

That should be enough for you to wait for a week or so without much worry.
