If you're caught out in the weather, shelter is the #1 priority. Depending on the temperature, being out in the elements can kill you in three hours, while you can go three days without water. Get sheltered first!

Survival Shelter
Survival shelters can come in all shapes and sizes and be located anywhere. If your shelter is located miles from the nearest city on your survival homestead, then you will deal with concerns like power and water especially. However, if you are planning on bugging out, then shelter could be anything from a tent, to an RV, to a brush teepee.

Here you will find information about different types of survival shetlers. You will also find links to information about surviving with power, solar power, distilling water from the sun, in fact anything having to do with building your own survival homestead.

No Place Like Home

Most information on emergency shelters falls into two categories; wilderness and underground. However, what if you are not in the wilderness and you don’t have a backyard in which to build an underground refuge? What do you look for as a protective environment if you live in an urban area?

Well, naturally, unless an earthquake, tornado or other natural disaster has destroyed it, the safest place to be will be your home or apartment. Even if a storm has caused a power outage, if you’ve already prepared for a disaster with supplies, food and water, then you probably have enough to last for an extended length of time.

If your home has been damaged beyond safety, travel trailers, RVs or tents pitched in the backyard, provided it’s not the middle of winter, will work as temporary survival shelters. These options allow you to stay close to your home and protect your belongings, while the wheeled shelters, provided they are well stocked, will provide many of the comforts of home, including cooking, beds and sanitary facilities.

Sheltering Away from Home

In the event you are not at home when disaster strikes, your only option may be to stay where you are, at least until it becomes safe to leave. Emergency shelters may include an office building, a school, hospital, the mall or church.

Most commercial business or office buildings will have water, an area with vending machines or food, microwaves and coffee maker, as well as a landline phone service. In many cities, the power lines will be underground, so the chances are the building may still have power.

Remember if there is looting and rioting, a decision will need to be made as to whether to resist, hide or run. A group of people can take turns standing lookout, but if you are alone in the survival shelter and the building has been invaded by unfriendly looters or rioters, then finding a good hiding place may be your best survival action.

Avoid looting targets

Avoid makeshift shelters in stores and other  -- and that means Wal-Mart and Target -- that offer food, drugs or weapons. They, and you, will be become targets by looters looking for easy pickings. 

Survival Groups Can Get Your Plan In High Gear

 Survival preparedness groups can help you accomplish your survival disaster plan faster and with more focus than you can do on your own. Once you find a group that has the similar mindset as you do, syngergy begins and you get more done with less money, time and stress than you would get down on your own.

Build An Emergency Food Supply

Long term food storage can be the lifesaving foundation of your survival preparedness plans that protects you in many types of emergency situations. With a little forethought you can establish an emergency food storage program. The emergencies that have people digging in to their stores was NOT the disaster they expected. A plan worked a little at a time can make give you high-level, long-lasting food supply security. The easiest way to finish the project is to purchase a one year supply for your family. Only do this when it won't cause undue financial hardship on you and your family today. In that case, I recommend accumulating by a weekly plan.

Time To Prepare

Not only are natural disasters a threat, but widespread terrorist acts have turned the concept of safety into question. Any large-scale national disaster is going to strain the resources of local and government relief services. Your survival and certainly long term comfort depends on just how prepared you are. Emergency and Survival Preparedness can be as simple as moving to a better location, creating a food storage program or developing an emergency exit plan. Preparation doesn't need to be stressful or overwhelming. On the contrary, that is why survival preparedness is an important part of living well.

The time to prepare is now. Survival hindsight is how an unprepared plan gathers dust. Every person needs to have extra food, extra water, and other items available to prepare for eventualities. We also want to help educate you so that you and your family have a better chance to come out on the other side should a life-disrupting event occur.

The hope is that what you learn here will inspire you to prepare for survival first by educating yourself and then taking practical steps towards survival preparedness.
