Building on our Emergency Preparedness in the home curriculum, the survival priorities are explored when sheltering in the home is no longer an option. The family must take the necessary items with them to survive away from the home. Using the risk analysis approach from EPitH, considerations are given for travel modes, equipment, and other emergency mitigations to be handled away from the home. Common and uncommon alternate shelters are explored (one is more likely to stay at a friend or relative’s house than retreat to the woods), food and water considerations for portable intent, and gear considerations to survive and rebuild a short term emergency.
