What exactly is a survival pack? The two survival packs that we carry are designed to expedite your emergency preparations and get you on the road to your goal quickly.
The 72–hr pack is designed to ensure that you are self-sufficient for at least three days, either in your home or, in case of the need for evacuation, on the go. With the basic needs of clean water, food, light, and radio communication met, you rest assured that you will have these items available on a moments notice if you need them.
The one-month survival pack is designed to ensure that you are able to take care of your basic needs for one month, in case of a prolonged power outage or another event, that disrupts the normal flow of supplies into your area. With a water filter, one month of Alpine Aire survival food, wind-up flashlight and radio and a basic guide to emergency preparedness including checklists, you are well on your way to preparing to survive the emergencies of our times more comfortably.
Make each pack more useful by personalizing it. We suggest you add to either pack the first aid items, clothing and personal toiletries that would contribute to your comfort in any situation. The first 72 hours are critical, so make sure your survival package will be at least last for that period of time and don’t forget about your kids’ survival packages!
It is important to invest in a good grain mill as part of your emergency preparations. Since the bulk of most long-term food programs is made up of grain, it is a good idea to have some sort of non-electric means of turning grain into flour and meal, a very important basic thing for your family. Want to see my personal first aid kit? You can read all about it here.
The best way to store grains and beans is in their whole state. They will last almost indefinitely in this form. Whole wheat was found in the pyramids and it was still edible. However, the best, most efficient way to use these same grains and beans, corn, etc. is to grind them into flour, meal or a cracked cereal consistency. The cooking time is greatly reduced when you grind the grains and beans. They often become more digestible which is a very important consideration during an emergency situation.
These grain mills are easy to use and both have an option for motorizing if you want to have fresh grain on a daily basis, and make sure you’ve got a working emergency plan! Check out this website or other online articles to get a good idea of how to get started.
Storage of Food
Stocking up on food, now while it is readily available, is the second most important emergency preparation, after clean water. During an emergency is not the time you want to be hungry or have hungry children. It is not the time you want to try to survive for three days on one protein bar. It is not the time you want to be introducing a diet of beans, grains, and powdered milk if your family is used to getting flavorful entrees and having sufficient supplies of antibiotics is critical as well. Enter AlpineAire food.
