My husband introduced me to this great video from AnalyticalSurvival.  He goes into great depth about everything that could happen and how to be prepared for it.  This video is more specific on WHY and WHAT you need to prepare for.

After watching the video,  I broke it up into 2 posts.  Why you need to be prepared and the major emergencies (below) and “How to Be Prepared” listing 9 Requirements to survive through ANYTHING.

Types of Emergencies

First, there are 2 major categories of emergencies, both based on Without Rule of Law.  I had NO CLUE what Rule of Law meant.  So, in case you don’t know, I’ll let Wiki enlighten you.

“Rule of Law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by…individual government officials.  Rule of Law implies that every citizen is subject to the law.”


1. Pre-Without Rule of Law Emergencies

Basically, these are things that can happen any time, any where and have nothing to  do with the law or government. Almost all of these are natural disasters.

  • Earthquake
  • Flood
  • Fire
  • Hurricane
  • Industrial accident
  • Home invasion

2. Without Rule of Law

These are emergencies that will happen with “Stuff Hits the Fan”, and all law rules and regulations go out the window.  Seems like some of these have been close to happening.

  • Civil up rest and riots
  • Pandemic
  • Terrorist attack
  • Solar flare/electromagnetic pulse (destroys all computers)
  • Sudden currency devaluation
  • Environmental disaster

“Any one of these possibilities has the potential to place your family at great risk and danger.”


Most worry about the basic “natural” disasters… but don’t realize how many OTHER emergencies and disastrous things could happen!  This video is enlightening on everything you need to be prepared for.  Read How to Make an Emergency Plan for your family.

AnalyticalSurvival goes on to list 9 things you need to  survive all of these emergencies.  As a result, showing you exactly what he has in his home and other tips.  Read a review of the basics on each of these in my next post “How to Be Prepared for Anything“.
