Helpful Websites for DIY Crisis Prep

Helpful Websites for DIY Crisis Prep

 

Since looking into pantry preparedness, I've learned a lot along the way and I'd like to share what I've learned.

That led me to ask myself, "Am I negligent in the area of crisis preparedness?"
I decided I needed to make a list of the helpful websites I found while investigating the subject of crisis preparedness and share them with you. I might as well put all the hours of reasearch to good use both personally and for others.
 
I will be adding links as I find sites, products, and tips that are helpful.

 

Information/Checklists

SB Canning on Facebook – Tons of canning information and tips

Be Prepared Educational Article"FEMA recommends storing a minimum of one gallon of water per person per day for two weeks. One gallon will only provide enough water for drinking and light sanitation so it´s wise to store more if you have the space. For comparison, the average person normally uses 70 gallons per day."

Over the Top Prepper's Check List – I included this one just for fun. This is a mile long list of everything anyone could imagine to learn/do/buy/store/prepare. "The Minimum Capability is the minimum amount of preparedness that you should strive to accomplish as fast as possible."
