Things to do after a disaster

Whenever there is a disaster, it will not be easy for everyone. But the people that are smart enough to plan and prepare ahead of time are likely to have an edge that is competitive while planning for the shtf plan.
If you happen to have a stockpile of water and food in your home, then there will be no need of facing the mobs in the supermarkets that will be out scrambling for basic supplies. If you have packed a bug out bag, you will always be ready to go out on a minute notice and will get out of the zone that has danger before the crowds start making people to get stuck.
Assess the situation
With the ham radio ready in your prepper gear, it will make you happy but you have to ensure that you have protected it with the EMP bags. You need to ensure that you have as much information as you can on the situation at the moment such as whether there is an occurrence of an evacuation, whether the looting and riots are happening, whether there is rise in water levels.
You can as well collect information in various other ways. Look in the outdoor to find out if everyone doesn’t have power or in case fires have broken out. In case your phone still works, you need to reach out to your friends who are on the other end of town or in different cities to find out what the situation is all about where they stay.
If you are not sure whether there is a nuclear disaster which has happened, then go ahead and test the cellphone plus other electronic items to find out if they are working and try determining whether there is an EMP which has taken place.
