How To Stay Safe House Safety The Best Firearm For Your Home

Emergency Essentials/BePrepared

First things first, when preparing to find a firearm that is best suited for you and your house safety it is important to look at the ease of care for the particular weapon you are looking for.

A shot gun I find to be the weapon of choice for our house safety. The reason I chose a shotgun is the ease at which I can keep and maintain it. Unclean and under maintained weapons are the major cause of deaths in house safety and gun related accidents. Below is a basic list of the things you will find in a gun cleaning kit. If the kit you are looking at does not include some of these items then do not buy that gun cleaning kit.

The basic components of a weapons cleaning kit for your house safety are…

  • AP (All purpose) Brush
  • CLP (Cleaning, Lubricating, protectant) Oil
  • Solvent
  • Rod(s)
  • patch holder
  • Bore Brush
  • Patches

Some more handy tips for keeping and maintaining your house safety firearm.

  • Q TIPS: These are great for getting in nooks and crannies of your gun parts to remove carbon…Carbon is not your friend, it builds up from the gun powder residue
  • Pipe Cleaners: These, like q tips can get in some more nooks and crannies
  • Gun Cleaning Mat: This can be anything from an old sweatshirt to a more fancy made for cleaning materials that soak up oil, etc.  You dont want to do this on the living room floor necessarily, but wherever you clean you dont want it soaked with oil and gunpowder residue.
  • *disclaimer* you should use latex gloves and eye protection when cleaning your weapon.

The Food Supply – Stockpiling Food

The Food Supply – Stockpiling Food, Smart families today realize that they can’t rely on the government to provide for them in case of an emergency survival situation.

Earthquakes, snowstorms, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, war, civil unrest, or any other catastrophe could make it difficult or impossible for you to feed your own family. Now, more than ever, wise citizens are becoming responsible and protecting their families with the food supply.

 1) Weather has got very little to do with how effective alternative energy source is. Summer or Winter it makes very little difference our sun power systems work in all conditions, saving you money and keeping the lights on when the power grid fails.

 2) Energy companies will pay you for your energy! Yes, it’s true. With an alternative energy source you can actually sell your sun power energy back to ‘the grid’ and the energy companies will reward you handsomely just for having your alternative energy source installed.

Emergency Reporting And Emergency Communication

One of the important things you want to remember when emergency reporting (calling 911) is to really try to get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible when you’re emergency reporting on the phone with the operator, that will help he or she determine the service you need as quickly as possible. You may have heard the expression "just the facts ma'am"; well that’s kind of what we're after here. When you’re on the phone emergency reporting something you want to try and be as specific and brief as possible in your emergency communication For example, "I need an ambulance, I see smoke, there’s been a traffic accident or I think I see someone breaking into my neighbor’s house. All those statements are very direct and to the point and immediately let the operator  know what kind of help you're going too need. While emergency reporting it may be tempting to give the operator some background about the situation, in general that’s going to be extraneous emergency communication and if needed it we'll certainly be ask for. When emergency reporting you just really want to stay on the line and listen to what to operator or dispatcher is asking you and answer their questions to the best of your knowledge. In your emergency communication help the operator get the point quickly to get help to you quickly also.

emergency reporting(Family Self-Reliance FREE Home Emergency Survival Training Guide)

A great emergency communication technique is what I used in the United States Air Force. It is like most things in the military a very easy emergency reporting system called S-A-L-U-T-E.

S = Size – number of people/vehicles involved or the size of an object.

A = Activity – What are the players doing in real time.

L = Location – Where is the activity taking place.

U = Unit – Describe the players or objects involved.

T = Time – What is the time of the incident.

E = Equipment – What types of vehicles are involved.

Time Management Strategies

time management stratigiesAn often over looked aspect of emergency survival is time management strategies. It is important to incorporate this survival technique into your disaster survival readiness plans. Here is a quick video and short article on how to implement and stick to time management strategies

# 1. Get centered get yourself together physically. Take a deep breath before you do anything this is the best way to begin your time management techniques.

# 2. Get a system Have a good time management strategies system. A kind of structure for how you handle your work flow. It might be a daily review or weekly review. Some kind of a system for your time management techniques so you can see what you are doing.

Join Our Time Management Course Here

# 3. Get it out of your head All those ideas there in your head. All the different things you think you might need to do. Get those down. Get those out. Record them. Have some reliable system preferably on a time management strategies list which brings us to…

# 4. Get specific what concretely is it you need to do. There's something on your time management strategies list for example Sort Marketing Plan. It's too big and your brain will look at that and say how would I do that? It's too much and move on to something else. Instead, you get all the things out of your head into specifics. Like call Dave or email Susan in marketing. Ask her the top 3 marketing companies in Brighton whatever it is. So, really specific on your time management techniques list.

# 5. Get a crumple zone what I mean by this is a time and day that isn't booked out for things are ready. So, if your days are already completely chucked up from 9 'till 7 with meetings. You won't have any time to do the things that will come up. Most people's jobs today over 50% of their time and sometimes 80% is taking out with reactive things. Things that come in. So, some kind of space that crumple zone if you will, to do that is absolutely critical to your time management stategies.

Make More Time For Your Family

# 6. Get committed There's actually no such thing as time management as to Dr. Who. But most of us are managing is our focus, our attention, energy and our commitments. So, what is it you said you would do and you wouldn't do. When people say they haven't got the time what they mean is I over committed or I prioritized something else. So, know what you're saying "YES" to. For this, you need to be able to say "NO"- equally important, and you also need to know what's really important for your job So, you're not just being efficient but you're also being effective while using your time management techniques.

# 7. Get human we're not machines. We do need time for rest. We do need time for flow and flexibility. So, as well as get efficient time management strategies. Its really important to make space for being a human being as well.

Hope these time management strategies will help you in your emergency survival readiness.
