2012 30-Day Survival Kit Essential

When an emergency hits, we don't always have enough warning to prepare for it. Whether you believe or not, it still makes you think, what if all the electronics suddenly stopped working, an asteroid struck the earth, sunspots erase magnetic stored data or a flu pandemic affected millions, would you be able to survive with what you currently have. Fortunately you have time to prepare.

Even thought the reality of the end of the world occurring in 2012 may seem unlikely, the reality is that we do have disasters that occur periodically. You can prepare for hurricanes, earth quakes, extended power outages or a wide spread pandemic. The primary requirements for survival are food, fuel, water, and shelter.
