    • Keeping Chicken Eggs Fresh Ages: 12+However, there are those that would argue that if the bloom can protect a chick for 21 days until it hatches, certainly unwashed eggs can sit on your counter and forego refrigeration. After all, people enjoyed eggs long before there was refrigeration. Let's not forget that there are many people throughout the world that enjoy chicken eggs as a staple in their diet and who have no electricity.

    • Pressure Canningby Virginia Cooperative Extension Ages: 12+The process for canning foods in the home depends on the acidity of the food, which is determined by its pH. Low-acid foods have a pH more than 4.6, and high-acid foods have a pH less than 4.6. In general, vegetables and meats are low-acid foods, and fruits are high-acid foods. High-acid foods can be safely processed in a boiling water bath, but low-acid foods must be processed in a pressure canner.Subjects: PDF, canning, low-acid foods, pH, pressure canner, vent port, dial gauges, weighted gauge, altitude, jars, lids, Lid wand, meat, poultry, vegetables, packing jars, color, flavor, preserving food, venting, timed process

    • What is Money When the System Collapses?by Mac Slavo Ages: 12+Initially, the traditional currency system will maintain some value, though it may be rapidly depreciating in buying power. For those with physical, non-precious metal denominated currency on hand (paper dollars, non-silver coins), spending it as rapidly as possible is the best approach. If your physical cash has not been converted into tangible assets, this would be the time to do so. Acquiring as much food, fuel, clothing and toiletry items as possible would be the ideal way to spend remaining cash before it completely collapses to zero, as it did in the Weimar inflation in 1930?s Germany, or Zimbabwe's hyperinflation in recent years.Subjects: article, resource, currency, barter, money, cash, food, supplies, fuel, ATM, gold, silver, water, reserves, baby formula Location: Nationwide

    • Household Emergency Planby Ohio Department of Health Ages: 12+For the millions of Americans who have physical, medical or mental disabilities, emergencies present a challenge. If you or someone you know has these types of special needs, planning ahead provides the best protection when disaster strikes. First, create a personal support network...Subjects: resource, pdf document, winter storms, power outage, household inventory, emergency contacts, medication, natural disaster, planning

    • Household Emergency Plan Templateby Dane County Emergency Management Ages: 15+Shelter-in-place means selecting a small, interior room, with no or few windows, and taking refuge there. It does not mean sealing off your entire home or office building. Contaminants may be released accidentally or intentionally into the environment. Keep a full tank of gas in your car if an evacuation seems likely. Gas stations may be closed during emergencies and unable to pump gas during power outages.Subjects: resource, pdf document, storm preparations, survival, power outage, household inventory, emergency contacts, medication, natural disaster, planning, disaster supply list, necessities, protection

    • Could You Survive Total Economic Collapse?by WriterGig Ages: 12+One of the first things you should consider is how you would feed yourself and your family members should a food shortage or interruption in the nation's food supply chain take place. For many families, having a long-term food storage pantry within their home provides great peace of mind. Shelter, water, food, protection, sanitation and heat are important considerations. Do not plan to rely on the government for help, unless you don't mind living in a sports stadium for days on end while things get sorted out -- or not.Subjects: article, banking, surviving, epidemic, monetary deflation, food, water, freeze-dried, supplies, bulk food, video presentation, seeds, economy, Fiat CurrencyLocation: Nationwide

    • Preparing for a Disaster with Your Special Needs Child in Mindby Carmen Ages: 12+Your child is sleeping peacefully after a long battle of the wills, and the last thing you want is to wake him for what might be a false alarm but... there is a tornado, or an earthquake or fire, or perhaps an evacuation. For any parent this is hard, but for a parent of a child with special needs, it makes it especially important to be prepared in advance to make sure things go smoothly.Subjects: article, resource, supplies, routine, event, education, preparation, disaster, emergency, special needs, evacuation, essentialsLocation: Nationwide

    • Preparing Your Farm Animals for Emergencyby John Ages: 12+If you are among those who have chosen an off-the-grid lifestyle, you know that growing and raising your own food is one of the best ways to maintain independent living. Taking care of farm animals requires a lot of work and is a big responsibility, however, and that responsibility can grow significantly if you are facing a natural disaster situation or other kind of emergency. No one who is raising cattle, pigs, chickens, sheep, or any other type of farm animal can afford to be caught unprepared when calamity strikes.Subjects: article, resource, animal husbandry, education, preparation, disaster, emergency, livestock, domestic animals, evacuation, essentialLocation: Nationwide

    •'s Disaster Preparedness Checklistby Epicenter Supplies, LLC Ages: 12+If you are taking this preparedness thing seriously, share this information with the households next to you. The more people you can convince to prepare, the greater your group resources. Remember that you will be called upon by all around you for help, especially by those who didn't take warnings seriously.

    • How Will You Protect Yourself From Heavily Armed Organized Gangs?by Mac Slavo Ages: 15+When we discuss home or bug-out location defense and the seemingly inevitable attacks that may happen in a post-SHTF world we usually resign ourselves to the idea that we have enough guns, ammo and people in our survival group to stop any incursions on our land. We assume that most of those who would attack, steal and kill us will be stupid gang bangers or idiot criminals. The reality, however, is starkly different than our perceptions may allow us to contemplate before it hits the fan.Subjects: article, gangs, military, defense, food, supplies, fuel, Mexican drug cartel, community plan, survival, lethal force, smuggling, gambling, Los Zetas Location: Nationwide
