Beside the naturist medicine which is important for a long term use, we need to assure a minimal amount of indispensable things in our first aid kit for an immediate intervention. We will never be 100% ready to face a natural disaster or a war that can suddenly occur, but our duty is to be preventative and to apply all our knowledge and in terms of prepping in order to be able to help and protect us and our families.

Don’t forget to check periodically the validity date of each item and replace them when needed.
You also have to pay attention to any special needs of your family members. Kids, elderly persons or allergic people may need any additional supplies to the kit.

 

Besides knowledge about first aid which you have to endorse, we also need to know how to handle emotionally any difficult situations. It is very important to repress emotions and panic and act calm and safe. I recommend the book “SURVIVAL M.D.”, this life saving knowledge is guaranteed to help you some time in your life. No matter if things are good or bad.
