FEMA Camps Series Part 3: What You Should Be Stockpiling Right Now To Avoid Relying On FEMA During An Emergency

What should you be stockpiling right now in order to avoid the need to go to a temporary emergency FEMA camp or to meet your family’s needs while attempting to avoid being ushered gratefully to a permanent FEMA resettlement camp? Water, long-term food storage items and plenty of ammo are three of the most important and obvious choices, but there is much more you will need to survive a lengthy disaster.

You do not have to be a millionaire to garner all of the food your family will need to survive a disaster. Growing your own groceries and taking advantage of long-term food storage sales help keep the budget in check. As noted in part 2 of the FEMA camp series, working with your neighborhood and community to better prepare the town for a disaster has a lot of advantages.

 OPSEC is not one of those advantages and perhaps you live in a more rural or isolated remote area, with the nearest neighbor living (at least) 50 acres away. Working with extended family and friends to create a mutual assistance group (MAGS) or a tribe, as I prefer to call it, can achieve the same (or perhaps, even better) preparedness result.

Disaster supplies are essential, but so are skills. Learning sight, sound and smell discipline will help keep your food preps from being discovered from the marauding hordes. Knowing how to start a fire with damp wood, being able to find your way in the woods and brewing up natural home remedies to combat common ailments are also skills which will enhance the chances of survival.
