The Asafo Mindset: 4 Ways To Prepare For Any Natural Disaster

Building Your Own ‘Category 5 Kit’

As I previously mentioned, you need three kinds of kits:

1. A Home Kit. This is your largest and heaviest kit.
2. A small Work Kit that contains basic first aid, rescue, and communications gear.
3. A Car Kit that contains vehicle, rescue, and shelter related items.

To check out or buy any of the items below, click on the links below. I have only listed items I have tested, owned or currently use.

Your Work Kit

You do not need a full survival kit at your workplace. If ish hits the fan, your mission is to get away from your job and to your car and home or a rally point outside of the city. The purpose of your work kit is to help you get out of your workplace and back to your car or home.

1. A small dufflebag or backpack. You need an easy to grab and go tactical dufflebag. Here is the one I use.

4. A signal kit. If you are trapped under rubble or stuck on the roof, you need a way to signal for rescue. Get all three of these items. A mirror wont work at night, so you need glow sticks. Whistles work in the dark or if you are under rubble. And waving glow sticks around will get attention at night.

Your Car Kit

In addition to the first aid kit, signal kit, and respirator in your work kit, you should have items in your car kit that help you repair your car, siphon fuel from other cars, and keep you warm if you will be sleeping in your car during cold nights. Here is the equipment I suggest you have.

1. A good car repair kit

2. A siphon and gas can: When sh*t hits the fan, gas stations wont be open. You will need gasoline. And there will be many cars parked around. A siphon is a hose that you can use to pull gasoline out of those parked vehicles. Grab one of these and keep them in your trunk.

Outstanding article! Since I live in an earthquake zone, I do have a kit of medical supplies and security “tools.” My medical kit contains wound dressings (band-aids, gauze, tape, sterile butterfly sutures, splints for fractures, braces for support, ACE bandages in 2″ to 6″ size, etc.), topical ointments, blister care (walking), plastic bags, saran wrap, reusable ice packs, flashlight, warm blanket, and much more. The “tools” are the usual; a few sharp blades, scissors, screwdrivers, and a few other toys, etc.

I like the recommendation for siphons, water purifier, and…simple clothes to blend in.

Ever since I was a little girl my mom thought I was kooky because I was always thinking about worst case scenarios. Surviving a disaster is never far from my thoughts to this day. I need to get prepared. Thanks for this guide!
