There is no guarantee that having supplies before any kind of disaster hits will save your life, however, it greatly improves your chances. There is no guarantee that having a pre-disaster plan will save your life, but as the old saying goes, “chance favors the prepared mind.” I can’t tell you how true that is. So having supplies and a plan in place will save your life more times than not, than leaving it up to chance. Think ahead, plan ahead and go over and practice your plan with every member of your family. Give everyone a responsibility and make sure they understand it and can perform the assigned tasks. If you practice enough you create muscle memory and there is less uncertainty and thinking involved, people just act, without thinking, and that will save your life.
There are several types of situations to plan and prepare for. You need to start with planning for the most common natural disasters in your area. Then you can move on to outdoor survival and other less common things like being lost in the wilderness or at sea, home invasions, kidnapping, street fights, riots, war and civil war, and government collapse.
In another article I go down a list of emergencies you can easily plan and prepare for, I include a list of equipment and supplies and where you can purchase them at reasonable prices. Then I go into other emergencies that are a bit unconventional that you can also plan and prepare for. I provide both the basic and advanced equipment and supplies you should have for any particular situation.
Here is a quick list of supplies you should consider purchasing now, ahead of time. Because remember, if you wait until disaster strikes, it’s too late.

Tools – ax, knife, rope compass etc.
