Life-Saving Knowledge: An Introduction
Certain potential disasters (tornadoes, hurricanes, floods) are fairly predictable, their magnitude and destructiveness are not. Knowing how to react in such a predicament is nearly impossible; however, survival moves beyond the first initial reaction and will depend upon how well-prepared the survivor is.
There are many different reactions to a disaster. It is not uncommon for a survivor to experience initial feelings of numbness or shock, grief, sadness, despair, hopelessness, and even anger. These are common reactions. What is important is the time it takes to recover from the initial reaction and kick into survival mode.
How does one shorten the time between initial reactions, such as those listed above, and survival mode? The answer is simple – preparedness. At The-Survivalist.com, the goal is to shorten the time it takes to get from shock to performance and give life-saving information to everyone for use in preparation of any disaster.
