Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation. 

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not. 

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills. 

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible. 

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.

Heartbreaking Tragedy Claims 25 Preschool Children

heartbreaking-tragedy-claims-25-preschool-children

(ModernSurvival.org) – Watching tragedy befall another person is never easy. However, when children are involved, disaster tends to be far more heart-wrenching. On Monday, November 8, at least 25 preschoolers lost their lives in one of the most horrific ways imaginable.

Outrage is sweeping the country of Niger following a fire in a preschool that claimed the lives of at least 25 children under the age of 7. Another 14 children were injured in the blaze.

The classrooms where the tragedy took place were temporary structures built from “risky materials” such as thatched roofing, according to child protection advocate Zakaria Salifou.

To make the horrifying event even worse, this isn’t the first time a fire has claimed the lives of preschoolers in Niger this year. In April, a similar fire broke out in a preschool in Niamey, the capital of Niger. Twenty children were killed in that blaze.

Following these heartbreaking disasters, the council of ministers has banned the use of straw roof huts for preschools. The Nigerian government has also called for three days of mourning.

This terrible loss of life is a reminder that tragedy can strike anywhere at any time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by these dreadful events.
