Preparation for possible disasters is key to making it through them with as little impact on you and your family as possible. If you read across the internet, advise ranges from “carry some extra clothes in your car in the winter” to “stock an underground bunker with food, water, guns, and ammo”. There are many levels to the disasters you may face, so there should be levels of preparedness. Leveled Survival’s philosophy is to classify possible disasters into one of four levels and plan according for each. There are also levels that different individuals can prepare due to their finances. This should not deter you from making preparations. While someone may buy the latest $300 knife to put in their pack, another may customize an old butcher knife from a flea market. Sometimes spending time instead of money on a solution can result in just as good of a level of preparedness.
