What do you need to do to insure that you and your family can survive during a crisis?

Most Americans are completely unprepared for an emergency crisis, almost 50 million people in the U.S. are on food stamps and live in densely populated cities with no ability to grow their own food. As food prices rise and government money no longer buys what it once did, citizens will become desperate.

Any type of currency collapse or default would be catastrophic, especially in urban areas, but if you are prepared, then you’ll be able to handle your new circumstances well. You’ll be able to stay warm, eat balanced meals and feed your family.. However, if you are NOT prepared, you may have to face some of the most difficult and disturbing times of your entire life.

First on the list should be to make sure you have enough food and water to last for at least three months, preferably six months for each person. If you must evacuate, "The Evacuation Pack” is an easy-to-carry bag filled with the essential food and supplies you’ll need to survive in any kind of short-term survival situation. Packed with great-tasting, nutritionally dense dehydrated food, simply add water and you’ll have a meal to rival any home-cooked dinner. Plus, you’ll get all kinds of tools and supplies to help you survive just about any kind of survival situation.

The Rolling Duffle Bag is by far the best value. It provides enough food and supplies to last one person for two whole weeks, or two people for one week. You get 44 servings of food, and dozens of supplies that you’ll find indispensable while you’re away from your home. There are three basic types of preserved foods to consider:

1) Traditional canned and sealed foods found on grocery store shelves (storage life about 1 year)

2) Specially prepared soft packaged foods like MRE's and backpacking meals (storage life: 5 to 7 years) The U.S. military's "Meals, Ready to Eat"--Shelf life depends largely on storage temperature, but kept cool (under 70 degrees) MRE's should be good for at least five years. Backpacking Meals range in sizes, from a compact 72-hour size to a 90-day supply. Buy a month's worth and you'll have a first-rate supply of portable survival food for a small group.

3) Freeze-dried, nitrogen packed foods in #10 heavy-duty lined cans (storage life 25 to 30 years). There are hundreds of different dishes available, from main entrees, vegetable and starch sides to deserts and breakfasts.

The emergency food supply that’s included in The Evac Pack has a shelf-life of 25 years! That’s because each 4-serving meal is packaged in a nitrogen-flushed mylar pouch. The unique packaging process removes 98% of the residual oxygen, which means the food will taste just as flavorful and fresh two decades from now as it will today!
