Train and prepare

Water Filter

Water is crucial in a crisis situation. Without it, no one can last long. That is why it is at the top of my list. 

Finding a source of clean water can be incredibly difficult, and most people have no clue how to tell if the water is safe to drink.

 

Unfiltered water will severely compromise your health, and lead to a wide variety of intestinal issues. 

This water filter works perfect, as it will purify the water as you drink it, ensuring you remain healthy and on your feet.

The Sawyer MINI Water Filter is one of the highest rated water filters for survival situations. 

It is small enough to fit in your pocket and can filter up to 100,000 gallons of water.

Navigation

The power of a simple compass will do wonders for your confidence if you are ever on your own.

These devices save lives and take the headache out of trying to know where you are.

There are countless stories of compasses leading people back to safety, or keeping them on track and helping them avoid getting off the right path.

Let's face it, we live in a world that requires us to be prepared to deal with the day to day. God put us here and as Catholics we need to function to the best of our ability. 

 

In order to be fully BATTLE READY, it is important to train and prepare and do what we can to be ready to handle whatever challenges may come our way.

 

We have a responsibility to not only care for our own lives in this world but we also have a duty to care for others. That takes a certain degree of training and preparing.

 

The goal with this page is to help you be better prepared in the case of a crisis.​ 

The items below are my top picks for what you would need in a crisis situation, covering everything from getting clean water, to navigation and defense.

Medical emergencies

The ability to deal with medical emergencies when you're on your own can mean life or death.

These are the highest rated bandages, recommended by experts, to assist in stopping bleeding, and wrapping up wounds quickly.

Having these in your Go Bag will bring peace of mind that you can deal with any medical emergency.

Both Israeli Bandages and Quick Clot Gauze work together to effectively stop blood flow and bind wounds quckly.

Fire Starters

Starting a fire and staying warm in a crisis situation is extremely important.

The items here will make your fire starting efforts much easier than if you were relying on regular mehtods.

Flint and steel is a classic and well known fire starter. It is reliable and anyone can use it effectively.

Water proof matches come in second place, as they are still plenty easy to use, but you are limited to your number of attempts.

To properly construct shelter, or cut through undergrowth, you need the right tools.

Both the Schrade Knife and Survival Hatchet are durable and won't break on you.

 

I have used these over and over again for everyday use. When I'm done with them they go back in my Go Bag to be used should the need arise.

In a crisis situation, you don't want to have to worry about your tools breaking. You'll undoubtedly have other things on your mind.

Go Bag

Where are you going to store all of these things? 

I recommend getting yourself a Go Bag, where you keep everything you'll need in the event of a crisis.

Should you need it, you can throw this bag over your shoulder and move. It's a convenient way to stay organized and readyfor anything.

Footwear

Proper footwear is often overlooked, but it is essential.

You won't be able to move very well if you can't keep your footing.

These are the best brand of boots that I have found. They provide good support while still being flexible.

Power Generators

Having a reliable source of power is important.

The Jackery Power Station is the best that I have found for this. 

There are multiple power levels available.

You'll also see that solar panels can be attached in case you are without electricity. 

This adds to the versatility of this product, and is one of the main reasons I recommend it.

Flashlights

Your ability to see will definitely come in handy in a crisis situation. 

This tactical flashlight has been a staple of my Go Bag for a long time.

Radios

This hand crank and solar powered radio will let you stay in the know in the event of a crisis.

It's small enough to fit in your pocket and will prove valuable should you need to stay up to date on current events, without access to electricity.

Food storage bins will come in handy as a way to keep your stored food safe until you may need it.

Green Drink

This is a great addition to your pantry, as it packs a nutrient dense punch. I've used this brand of green drink powder for years and I highly recommend it.

fire Extinguisher

"The best form of home owners insurance that you can have is a fire extinguisher," a firefighter friend told me this years ago, and it is so true. 

A fire extinguisher is easy to use, and something that you will be very grateful you have on hand should there ever be a fire.

Pepper spray

Pepper Spray is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself. Small enough to be held in your hand, and attach to your key ring, it's always a good idea to have this on your person, particularly when you're alone.
