I have been thinking lately about emergency preparedness and survival. I live in California so an earthquake is a distinct possibility and I've been through a few of them. I live alone and if I'm cut off from power, water and other services, what would I do?
I'm searching the internet and looking at survival lists, air-tight food storage, water storage, what foods to get, etc., and I ordered a couple of books at Amazon to learn basic survival techniques.
One of the most basic things is a 3 day survival kit in a backpack that you can grab and go, at home and in the car. I think I'll order a couple of the already put together kits.
