This article has recently been updated on 11/09/2012 and it contains important new information. Please feel free to come back often to check for updates, so I don't have to write different articles every time I find information that may be useful to you that may easily fit into this article. Although, I will write new articles on topics that I think you may be interested in, but only if you leave questions in the comment section at the bottom of this article or any of my other articles. Just remember that there are no stupid questions. I will answer your questions honestly and straight forward, or at least, try to provide information that may help you in a time of need in the event of a disaster.

Recent events in the world have shown us all how people
react to situations that may disrupt or even cause them to change their way of
thinking. The recent situation in Japan and other countries is a prime example of fear dominating
the lives of persons throughout the world. Now we have uprisings and turmoil all over the world for various reasons. But this article is not about preparing for WWIII, it is for people that want to survive an earthquake, flood, tornado, hurricane, or a man-made disaster that requires you to stay put, or move away. And have what you need to do it right with little or no fear.
Here is my personal philosophy regarding fear behavior. Fear can and usually leads to panic in a major crisis, and panic leads to possible tragedy.
Most people are afraid for the simple reason that they don’t know what to do in a crisis situation. Fear is one of our strongest emotions. Because we have an instinctive will to survive that overrides almost every other thought when we are in crisis situations. We tend to forget that it is fear that makes us do things that are either incredibly helpful, or stupid in regards to survival. I have read and talked to many people about preparedness, and I was overwhelmed by the amount of fear that people have about the unknown.
This article is meant to help you to leave fear behind, (for the most part), and instill confidence in your abilities to be able to survive and possibly, even thrive in times of doubt and uncertainty.
