Check List – Exposure

This is the seventh post in a series of posts that will cover each area of threats/risks as they pertain to emergencies, disasters, and grid-down events. Each check list has been taken from the associated “layering” article for each area of risks and threats. This series is based on the “7 Common Risks/Threats” article I produced a few years ago.

As I have reviewed the disasters in the last 40+ years I noticed pattern develop, a pattern of common risks, or threats, that were present each and every time. Granted, in some situation/incidents one or more items were far more prominent but they were all there.

This particular check list applies to the risk/threat of exposure.

You need the ability to protect you and your family against exposure to the elements. This applies to your body and to your shelter.

Problem: Hypothermia and hyperthermia can kill…and do so rather quickly in some cases.

Solution: Acquire sufficient and proper clothing for each person in your family. Acquire basic shelter capability such as a tent.
