In This Episode:We’ve all heard the phrase “Be aware of your surroundings.” Typically, this saying is used in relation to personal safety. For example, if you’re walking alone at night, you should be cognizant of what’s going on around you and be prepared to react if you perceive a threat. If you’re driving a car, you should be aware of other drivers and try to anticipate their actions, such as someone slamming on their brakes or swerving into your lane.In this day and age, it is more important than ever for one to be aware of their surroundings. In this episode, we will discuss The Art of Situational Awareness.Key Topics:                                                                                                                  Time StampWhat Is Situational Awareness?                                  02:49The Importance of being aware                                   03:12The color code of awareness                                         04:13Being on alert for abnormalities and risks            06:44Using your senses                                                                 08:33Practicing situational awareness                               11:28Conclusion                                                                                12:41Recommended reading;Spotting Danger Before It Spots YouLeft of BangSheep No MoreColor code of awareness printableSocial Media;FacebookTwitterInstagramSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/typicalprepping)Survival Frog "Preparing Made Easy"Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Start an Emergency Food PantryOn This Episode:For Centuries, food pantries were an essential space in every household. Weekly trips to the market were impractical or impossible, and families relied on their pantries to get them through the lean winter months.Today, most people live a short drive away from the grocery store, so organizing a home food pantry might seem unnecessary.One of the biggest benefits of a home food pantry is that it enables you to prepare for short- and long-term emergencies. There are many scenarios that could make it difficult or impossible to go to the grocery store.It’s important to realize that food shortages can happen anywhere, at any time, even if your area is not experiencing an emergency. Most grocery stores only have enough food on hand to meet the needs of their community for three days, sometimes even less. If something happens to disrupt the food supply chain, this means that your local market could run out of food very quickly.In this episode, we’ll discuss how you can start your emergency food pantry!Key Topics:                                                                                                       Time Stamp:Where to stockpile your food                          (02:36)Track What you eat                                                 (03:31)Buy the foods you eat                                            (05:03)Stockpiling food                                                         (05:36)The $10 a week emergency food pantry    (06:16)Rotate your food supply                                       (09:13)Dehydrated and freeze-dried foods              (09:59)Do’s and don'ts of food storage                        (10:23)Conclusion                                                                     (11:55)Social Media;FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterestWebpage; https://www.typicalprepping.comSubscribe to my email list; Click HereEmail me with your suggestions, comments, or questions; keith@typicalprepping.comSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/typicalprepping)1-800-prepare.com Survival Kits, Emergency Kits, and Emergency Preparedness InfoSurvival Frog "Preparing Made Easy"Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
