Robert started prepping 15 years ago in anticipation of the perceived Y2K crisis. Starting out small with just enough resources to get him and his family through a week of supply disruptions, this quickly turned into a journey, which over the past 15 years has grown into a full time endeavor focusing on urban, shelter in place situations. Robert started the blog www.SurvivalCentral.net 4 years ago which now has grown to be one of the top 10 survival sites according to Top Survival Sites: http://www.topsurvivalsites.com/ and placed 6th for The Reader’s Choice on Top 50 Survival Sites: http://www.survivaltop50.com/readers-choice/. What started as a blog has grown to include SurvivalCentral.ca, its own survival store. With his focus on DIY projects Robert is a featured contributor on Instructables.comhttp://www.instructables.com/id/Chip-Bag-Emergency-Reflective-Blanket/ where he brings fun , practical and unique projects for prepping and survival situations. He is currently writing an Ebook on Recycled Prepping which focuses on projects using recycled items form around the home for prepping and in survival situations. Seeing a need for a community based prepper survival group in the Durham Region, he started The Durham Region Prepper Survival Group this past February. - motto: “Be Prepared, Stay Safe and Survive.” - Organizer of The Durham Region Prepper and Survival Group.

Hey Prepper Nation, 

Accumulating medications may be simple when it comes to finding aspirin and other non-prescription drugs but prescription drugs will be hard to get for those who can’t write their own prescriptions or don’t have a relationship with an understanding physician who can.  Antibiotics are a case in point.

I consider this a major issue because there will be a much larger incidence of infections when people have to fend for themselves, and injure themselves as a result.  Simple cuts and scratches from chopping wood can begin to show infection, in the form of  redness, heat and swelling, within a relatively short time.   Treatment of infections at an early stage improves the chance that they will heal quickly and completely.  However, many preppers, being the rugged type, are most likely to ignore the problem until it get much worse and spreads to their entire body, causing problems that could eventually be fatal. Having antibiotics readily available would allow them to deal with the issue until medical help (if available at all) arrives.

The Possible Face of Safety Survival Run Out

With numerous information drive disseminated about disaster safety guide and whatnot, come hell or high water you probably know the drill: stock up on survival basics like food, water, first aid, security or self-defense, and sanitation. If you’ve considered them, then you’re already many steps ahead than those who don’t. While Americans feel they’re knowledgeable about preparation for emergency/disaster situations, only one in three have actual preparedness plans, according to the SUNYIT/Zogby Analytics poll last year.

Let’s say that your disaster survival kit can go a long way to survive the disasters, but there’s more to the crisis situation that you should know (especially if you haven’t experienced anything like it at all). While you’re at it, it’s also important to be aware of the next big disasters that can happen what with Mother Nature getting so fed up with our selfish, destructible ways on this planet (or maybe the end is just near, we’ll never know). The intention is not to create panic, but a reality check is crucial every once in a while. If such things happen, know that we’re not completely helpless. Continue reading
