9 Keys to Survival in the CITY
1 - Establish a Rendezvous (Rally) LocationWherever you go, always choose a location where your friends, family and those in your party will meet up if separated or in the event of an emergency where you loose the ability to communicate.
2 - Alternate CommunicationAlways have an extra power source for your mobile phone like the ANKER PowerCore 26800 (that can charge the average iPhone 4- 6 times). In the event that the communication grid goes down it's a good idea to carry high power, water-resistant, two-way radios with sub-frequencies - like the Midland GXT1050. Establish a main-frequency and an alternate frequency if the airwaves get crowded.
3 - Always Be ReadyIn an urban setting, you need to have your a preparedness plan ready to go at a moments notice. Have (at the least) a small go bag / bug out bag with essentials close by and ready to go. Have a plan and share it with others.
4 - Have a PlanYou Need to have a Disaster Readiness Plan. Your safety, security and survival could be severely compromised if you do not have a solid plan in place for yourself and your family. So start NOW and plan. Things to Include:
