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.

Pacific Northwest Hammered by “Bomb Cyclone”

Pacific-Northwest-Hammered-by-Bomb-Cyclone

(ModernSurvival.org) – America’s Pacific Northwest has had a rough year. Millions of acres and thousands of buildings burned to the ground while wildfires scorched multiple states. But although the fires were bad enough, a new threat came pouring down — literally.

What is being called a “bomb cyclone” tore through the Pacific Northwest over the weekend, drowning many areas in rainfall. In less than 24 hours, some parts of California had recorded up to ten inches of rain.

The downpour flooded streets and led to mudslides in areas previously burned by the wildfires. Over 170,000 residents found themselves in the dark as the storm wrought havoc on the power grid.

Further north, Oregon didn’t fare much better. The extreme weather broke records and left tens of thousands without power there as well. In Seattle, Washington, two individuals lost their lives as a result of the storm as the intense wind caused a tree to fall on their vehicle.

Once again Mother Nature has proven that it is a force to be reckoned with. Torrential downpours are more than capable of flooding streets, or even sweeping cars away.

To see how one simple feature can be used to escape a car that has sunk in floodwater, take a look at our article here.
