The focus of this book is medical preparedness: the ability to deal with sickness and injuries in tough times. Of course, anyone wishing to survive must first have food, water, and a shelter of some sort. A full stomach and protection from the elements will be the top priority. What, then, is next on the list? After gathering food and building a shelter, many prepared individuals consider personal and home defense to be the most important priority in the event of a societal collapse. Certainly, defending oneself is important, but have you thought about defending your health? In a situation where power might be down and normal methods of filtering water and cleaning food don’t exist, your health is as much under attack as the survivors in the latest zombie apocalypse movie. Infectious diseases would likely become rampant, and it will be a challenge to maintain sanitary conditions. Simple activities of daily survival, such as chopping wood, commonly lead to cuts that could get infected. These minor issues, so easily treated by modern medical science, can easily become life threatening if left untreated in a disaster. You may be an accomplished outdoorsman and have plenty of food and your share of defensive weaponry. Yet, what would you say to a member of your family who becomes ill or injured in a remote and austere setting? The difficulties involved in a grid-down situation will surely put the health of your entire family or group at risk. It’s important to have training and supplies to deal with infections and injuries. In a collapse, there will likely be a lot more diarrheal disease than gunfights at the O.K. corral. History teaches us that, in the Civil War, there were more deaths from dysentery than there were from bullet wounds. If you make the commitment to learn how to treat medical issues and to store medical supplies properly, you’re taking a genuine first step towards ensuring your family’s survival in dark times. The medical supplies are more likely to be there if the unforeseen happens, and the knowledge you gain will be there for the rest of your life. Many medical supplies have long shelf lives; their longevity will be one of the factors that will give you confidence when moving forward. And let’s not ignore their value as barter items in times of trouble.
