The Prepare “FOUR” (Acronym) Breakdown Article Two – Step Two

In this blog post, we provide a brief introduction to Step Two following Article One – Step One.

O-rganize Your Plan (Step Two):

Once you’ve researched a few ideas and DIY hacks tailored to your lifestyle and once you’ve considered all the potential obstacles/challenges that may arise before, during or after a crisis, after formulating your plan, start taking a few baby steps towards organizing a plan.

Keep in mind that taking care of the people you love requires a lot of foresight, researching, information gathering, assessing, a significant amount of brainstorming and, in some instances, an analytical mind with a calculated but, practical approach.

Make sure that even the most “insignificant” detail is covered to assure that everyone in your household is taken care of and has what they need to execute your plan of survival.

Think about what is most important to you and your loved ones. A well thought out plan will be tailored to a family’s basic (but, most important) needs.

For example, when you consider  the area where you live (urban, suburban, rural) and the type of weather (hot, tropical, cold, dry/deserted or damp) that’s usually prone to certain natural disasters (droughts, sandstorms, volcanoes, wildfires, tornadoes, flooding, hurricanes, tropical storms, nor’easter, cyclones, blizzards, etc.), what type of emergency plan is most suitable to your very specific individual /personal lifestyle and needs?

Even a rare type of disaster “unlikely” to occur within your area, should be considered.

A good way to start thinking about how to organize a plan is to incorporate the rules of 3’s (all 4 of them).

These rules should be considered and are important because humans cannot survive without:

  • 3 Minutes of Oxygen
  • 3 Hours of Shelter
  • 3 Days of Water
  • 3 Weeks of Food
Prepare FOUR Organize Your Plan
Prepare FOUR the worst by organizing your emergency plan

Before drafting your plan, consider the following:

OXYGEN:

  • As an industrialized nation, most U.S. populations suffer from an unhealthy level of air pollution. Air pollution, if left unresolved, can sometimes lead to inevitable sudden disasters. What are the different ways you can help to improve both, outdoor and indoor air quality?
  • What practical or inexpensive ways can you/your family practice a green lifestyle?
  • How will you mitigate an air borne life threatening situation to protect you/your loved ones from a hazardous materials or an airborne crisis?
  • Should you consider attending a basic CPR class?

SHELTER:

  • What inexpensive ways can you declutter/improve/minimize your living space?
  • What are your different evacuation options? If, suddenly, you have nowhere to go, what is the backup plan of your back up?
  • What are the different forms of shelters you can build?
  • Are there any concerns with safety issues in the area you live in?

WATER:

  • During a crisis, where is the nearest available/safest water source?
  • How will you mitigate a massive contaminated water crisis?
  • What types of water filters are best to use?
  • How much water is enough to stock up on?
  • What is the backup plan of the backup if there is no water at all?

FOOD:

  • What type of and how much food should you store?
  • Where and how do you store it?
  • Depending on the crisis, how safe will it be to commute to the nearest available food source?
  • How will you protect your food stockpile from imminent threats?

The above questions are just a few to consider.

Stay tuned for Article Three – Step Three where we dive deeper into the different ways you can u-tilize your plan.
