A bank holiday for a week or two,no biggie.You do have several weeks worth of food stashed at least,right? Many recommend at least three months.Some at least a year.
Tornadoes,Hurricanes,Earthquake,Massive floods,or any disaster that could leave you homeless.Could you survive?Do you know how to make an emergency shelter? Do you know how to make fire? Could you feed yourself or family? Do you know how to make water safe to drink? Can you protect your family in case of unrest,looting,rioting.Those who don't believe in guns,will find that if staring down a crazed crowd intent on doing harm,firearms are probably the only resort to protect your family.If you are afraid,take a course on gun safety,before you even purchase a gun.Then perhaps a course on defending yourself.
Folks there are so many things going on in our world,we really should be preparing for.There is job loss,food shortages are coming,financial collapse,Govt collapse if you think this one is far fetched you really should do some research,now the news stirring up racial issues,could a race war or at least racial violence be in the future? I hope not,but I like to be prepared.
Once more do you have or are you thinking of alternate ways to heat your home if power is out.Kerosene,wood,propane.
Lighting if power is out.Candles work if you are careful not the best choice if you have children.Battery powered fluorescent lanterns with rechargeable batteries and solar chargers could keep you in light for a while if you have sunshine.
Store food,so many have covered this,I won't go in to it,but do it.
Water filters depending on budget range from $30 to over $300.Ways to store water from cleaned out 2 liter bottles to expensive storage containers.
Medical supplies and knowledge could be crucial.
Seeds to grow your own food in case of a real collapse or just long decline in economy. My bet.
