Have a Plan: Identify what you need for a safe retreat and assemble your resources.

When it comes to surviving Armageddon, having a solid plan and the right resources is key. First, identify what you need to keep your family safe in the event of a disaster. Make sure you have plenty of food, water, medical supplies, and fuel on hand for both your home and any potential retreat location. You should also be prepared with emergency communication devices such as flashlights or radios so you can stay connected with family members even without power.

Additionally, research the climate of the region you’re living in and plan accordingly. Are tornadoes and flooding a potential issue? Is there a high risk for severe snowstorms or drought? Knowing which natural disasters could affect your area is essential for making preparations. Finally, practice emergency drills with your family so everyone knows how to stay safe in a worst-case scenario.

Set Up Defenses: Prepare and practice necessary strategies to guard yourself against enemies.

When it comes to surviving an Armageddon, it's essential to prepare and practice strategies for protecting yourself from enemies. This includes creating a plan for what you will do if you are attacked, stocking up on supplies that can be used as weapons, and researching self-defense tactics such as martial arts. To gain knowledge about potential adversaries, read reconnaissance reports on conditions in your area, set up lookout points around your property or retreat location, and join volunteer security organizations in your community.  Additionally, consider joining an organized militia so that you have the strength of numbers behind you even before disaster strikes.

Wearing protective clothing will also be important. Invest in thick soled shoes, a bulletproof vest and heavy duty gloves that can help reduce any damage done by shrapnel or bullets. If possible, get additional training in defensive tactics. Additionally, think about creative ways to fortify your property with sand bags or blasting and digging strong trenches around the edges of your home or retreat location. Keep any weapons you have clean and well-maintained, and practice how you would use them should you need to defend yourself. Finally, always look for ways to simplify your plan so that it is easily understandable to not just yourself but anyone else who may be involved in protecting your territory.

Use Your Resources Wisely: Find practical solutions to provide food, clean water, and power sources in the wake of natural disasters or war.

Identify sources of food, water and clean sanitation that will be available in a post-apocalyptic world. This includes ways to filter or purify water, how to identify edible plants and how to hunt for food using various traps, nets and primitive weapons. Also, determine which transport methods are available, such as a horse, motorcycle, bike if cars don’t work. Lastly, make sure you have access to batteries, gas, and propane for flashlights or lanterns for lighting during the night or for cooking that do not rely on electricity. Solar ovens are an effective way to cook food with limited resources.

Locate others in the community and find ways to restore pockets of civilization in your area. Learn from the survivors around you, barter with them to create a secure society that can withstand the effects of any natural disasters or war. Look into creating energy sources such as wind turbines or solar panels which could help power any surviving communities. Cooperate with neighbors to gather materials and create shelter that will protect against rain, cold, heat and animals.

Rely on Community Support: Develop connections with like-minded individuals to share expertise, labor, and other materials that could be beneficial in your survival situation.

The best way to survive a post-apocalyptic world is to rely on the strength of your community. Look for others who are in similar situations who have knowledge and resources that you may be lacking. Not only will it help with individual survival, but it could help you build larger communities that can increase safety, allow for more efficient resource use, and also provide emotional support as well. Follow others on Twitter, Facebook so you can find others in your area.

While it’s essential to stay organized and remain focused on your own needs, being in a community of like-minded individuals can make long-term survival a much more achievable goal. It’s helpful to look into what resources or skills may be provided by others because everyone has something that they’re good at. Additionally, learning how to use communication and interpersonal skills can help you learn to handle any disputes that may come up between members of the group. Developing connections with those around you can be an invaluable resource.
