Emergency Supplies to Keep on Hand


Living in the backcountry is more than just a geographical location. It demands a self-sufficient lifestyle. You need to know how to do things “the old-fashioned way” in case the grid goes down. Between frequent power outages, natural disasters such as wildfires, and health pandemics, the chance of living off-grid out here is not a matter of if but when. Preparing for emergencies is not an easy task. To help guide you in the right direction, I’ve put together a preparation guide of supplies to keep on hand. They can be used prior to evacuation and taken with you to be used wherever you are staying temporarily. The time to prepare is now.
