Devastating events in metropolitan areas can necessitate implementation of urban survival skills in order to survive the breakdown of society and government. The possibility of an emergency situation produced by bio-terrorism, terrorism, detonation of nuclear weapons, asteroid collision or meteor strikes exists at any given moment.

While some of those events may seem to be a bit far-fetched, probably of more concern would the a breakdown of the Federal or State government; domestic terrorism, city-wide riots with vandalism and arson, and a cessation of government benefits like food stamps and welfare. Anymore, it doesn't take much to set off that powder keg of lawlessness that can turn any metropolitan area into an urban survival situation
Being prepared to address this type of disaster in which civil authority, mobility, communication and infrastructure devices are ineffective or totally nonexistent means devising a plan and knowing exactly how to utilize this plan.

Urban Survival Becomes Real


Living safely in a crowded, congested, hectic noisy and sometimes dirty urban area where the population exceeds 500,000 is difficult enough without the added complication of a disaster. Those who are used to living in the "urban jungle" may not realize just how much worse it will get when anarchy reigns supreme.

Of course, after the summer of 2020, residents of Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New York, and Washington D.C., probably have a better idea of what it means to live in a city where domestic terrorists are running amok, and the local government is doing nothing to stop them. In fact, in many cases, the government was actively encouraging the terrorists.

For many citizens of those cities, staying alive, avoiding harm, keeping their homes and business safe really became a matter of urban survival. Most did NOT have the option of defending themselves with firearms, and as happened in one SUBURBAN area, when the homeowners opted to protect themselves they were then forced to face prosecution by the very government who was supposed to protect their rights.


When Escaping Is Not Possible

Although survivalists recommend fleeing an urban setting as soon as possible following an emergency situation, issues may arise which prevent you from an immediate departure. 

Not only that, but where are  you going to go? If you don't already have a bugout location, family or friends you can stay with, don't just think that you can head out into the country and beg for mercy from some farmer or rancher. Trust me, country folks are going to defend what is theirs, and they will usually have the land to do S.O.S. (shoot, shovel, and shut up).

Don't mess with those country folks.

So, if you have to stay put in some metropolitan jungle, here are some urban survival tips for living in a post-apocalyptic world:
PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION
  • Maintain a low profile when venturing outdoors. Do your best to remain as inconspicuous as possible. Carry a broomstick, walking cane, glass bottle or pepper spray when going outside. If things have really deteriorated, carry a handgun for protection. Learn how to use a gun by taking lessons before you need to use it.
  • If power is still on, hang blackout curtains to prevent others from seeing the light inside your shelter at night. Remember, with little to no laws being enforced, people are apt to do anything

  • When food becomes scarce, avoid cooking since the smell may attract others who do not have any resources. Many more gangs will form after a breakdown of society and government. They will constantly be roaming the city looking to steal anyone's resources. So having some Emergency food bars or MREs will keep you fed without need to cook.
  • In case of no water supply, have a emergency toilet available, which can be emptied into a hole in the back yard or other outdoor area.
  • Keep extra cash safely stashed in an airtight and waterproof lockbox.
  • Keep enough food and medical supplies stocked in your home that will last as least six months.
  • City pigeons are edible if food runs low. So are squirrels, rats and rabbits. However, this meat needs to be thoroughly cooked before eating to remove parasites
  • Know some basics of martial arts self-defense moves to enhance urban survival skills.
  • If you run out of clean drinking water, other sources that may be available include a waterbed that could contain around 500 gallons of water, collecting rainwater or obtaining water from nearby park ponds or streams. Always purify this water before drinking.
  • Before the disaster happens, replace your apartment door or house doors with steel, bolted security doors.
