Preparedness

Totally agree. I have one in my bag even though I’m not in an urban area. I’ll be buying one for my son for his college dorm emergency kit.

These P-51 can openers are big enough to be useful, but small and cheap enough to have one everywhere. I keep one in my office.

Years ago I built cheap, key ring sets for some family members. P-51 can opener, a pinch light, cheap ferro rod and scraper. You could even add the littlest Swiss Army knife and have a decent little set up that is easily carried anywhere.

Not a bad idea to tour the area to see where it can be used. Before its actually needed :us:

I like the way this guy alliterates with 13 “C’s.” This is certainly not exhaustive, but a good list and a good refresher. I also like the way he organizes this. I’ve been working on a “B” list for my son for college (beans, bullets, bandaids, etc.). But I like what this guy does better.

Scott,

I too have a bug-out bag. Food, water, medicines, tools, gloves, first aid kits, gun/rifles/ammo as well as other necessities. Youbjust never know if the SGHTG or not… better to be prepaired than caught off guard. imo

Was talking to some folks the other day. And I realized that they had no concept of what a major event is. Some didn’t know what an EMP was. I gave an explanation. Still don’t think they grasped the subject. told them where to go for info. :us: :us: :us:

When they go to login to their computer or start their cars, they will sadly understand.
