New Family Survival Kit: More Options for Disaster Preparedness

The 4 person survival kit packed in a duffle bag, is the newest addition to  line of products. It was designed with families in mind. Statistically, only about 32% of Americans are prepared for disasters and out of that number these people may be vastly under prepared. Having the proper equipment to evacuate, shelter in place or live outside in the elements may become a reality should a natural or man-made disaster strike. Survival Kits Online is based in Southern California where earthquakes are a fact of life, so the company’s owners Chad Allen and Scott Kastner spend countless hours to find the best and most essential items for their new 4 person kit.

This survivalkit is a great addition to both Survival Kits On-line’s web store and retail location in West Hills, California. Humans can only live a few days without water, so after a disaster strikes water becomes very precious. Most survival kits on the market have very little water in them, which can put a person in risk of dehydration.

Planning for your Family Future – Crisis Garden

Could you and your family get off the grid and survive in a panic? Do you have enough seeds to plant a crisis garden to be able to feed your family? Do you have the right kind of seeds to plant? If you’re answering no to these questions, you need to stop wherever you are and ask yourself one very important question. “What would I do if the grocery stores closed and I could not buy food?” The answer is that you and your entire family would probably go hungry unless you have survival food stocked away.

Have you ever grown a garden? Most Americans have grown them for tomatoes or some of their favorite foods. This has been an exceptional way to reduce food expenditures and have fun at the same time. Yes it is work however it has always been rewarding work. Before I began thinking about the ever increasing problems in the world and this country I enjoyed growing tomatoes, broccoli, corn, peppers, beans and many other foods that we either ate or gave away to the neighbors. I will no longer give away what we cannot eat unless it is in exchange for a food I have not grown. I will now use canning methods to store all of the excess foods from my garden to create more survival foods for the future. In case the stuff hits the fan as is becoming increasingly likely I will process foods from my garden for our future consumption.

However there is a problem in that most of the seeds that we use are HYBRID meaning that they will produce for a season (Maybe two) and the seeds from the hybrids will not germinate or reproduce again. These are known as terminator seeds in the industry and could kill you crisis garden plans for the long term. The other problem with these seeds is that the nutritional yield of these seeds is lower as seed companies and farmers have striven over the years to produce more, the nutritional value has declined in the end product that you buy in the grocery.
