When “It” Hits the Fan, Don’t Do These Things


(TheSurvivalGuide.com) – Just as important as what to do in a disaster is what NOT to do. Some mistakes can kick your foundation right out from underneath you, while others make life harder and more dangerous than it needs to be. YouTuber SensiblePrepper lays out the 13 top things to avoid in this video.

We’ve mentioned this one over and over: don’t panic. SensiblePrepper takes it even further and outlines what to avoid that can cause you to be in an ongoing state of panic.

Many people expect a big news report that basically tells them, “it’s hitting the fan right now!” Unfortunately, that’s just not how emergency scenarios usually go. Try your best to keep up on current events, but avoid obsessing over them. Then you can see how events might unfold before they actually do (without driving yourself into a panic).

The whole idea of prepping is to make sure you can survive a disaster or major event, whether it’s on the go or at home. One important aspect of that is avoiding being criminalized or seen as a “glorified refugee.” In other words, there are some things that you need to avoid simply because if you don’t, you’ll make the situation harder on yourself — and that’s the opposite of what you want.
