Palos Heights, IL (PressExposure) February 04, 2012 -- The Emergency Survival Blog, a leading authority in all things 'survival related', launches their themed store, stocked with 'must-haves' for anyone seeking the tools and guidance required to become truly self sufficient during any disaster.
The 2010 and 2011 years brought with them a host of devastating natural disasters; earthquakes in Haiti, Japan and Chile, floods in Thailand, a typhoon in the Philippines, and massive storms throughout the U.S. Amidst these crippling natural disasters, we also faced one of the most challenging economic downturns of the past millennium.
Despite reports that the U.S. and global economies are picking up steam, many leading economists disagree. According to the U.S. Commerce Department, the national economy grew at a pace lower than 2% for the 2011 calendar year. While the U.S. is expected to fare better than its global counterparts in 2012, concerns still circle around sluggish domestic consumer spending, unemployment rates and most importantly, the rising national debt load. If negative trends continue, resulting in a fiscal collapse, how would the average American respond?
Gone are the days where families were equipped to live off their land. Generations past possessed skill sets that many modern families lack; hunting and gathering for food, gardening, food storage and preparation and general survival skills. Why have these skill-sets gone by the wayside? The answer is simple- modern technology has caused the masses to become lazy, assuming that everything required to function on a daily basis will be provided for them, or available on a whim.
"The Emergency Survival Blog was created to provide information, how-to's and resources for anyone seeking to regain the skill sets required to survive during any disaster, natural or financial. Our new themed store provides products and services designed to protect individuals and families facing virtually any challenge," said Dan Annweiler, founder of The Emergency Survival Blog.
Within the Survival Themed Store, visitors will have access to critical survival items such as food rations, water and water filters, medical supplies, and self-defense tools. Regardless of the outlook on the economy's future, or whether a natural disaster lands in one's backyard, these basic survival tools will ensure that the average individual is well prepared. Proper preparation will ensure not only survival, but that one can thrive given any environmental or economic circumstance.
