‚ÄúHey folks, former Navy SEAL Cade Courtly with your 4Patriots ‚ÄúSurvival Minute.‚ÄĚ

Okay, so let's discuss the five things that you basically need to address for dealing with a survival situation at home: water, food, medical. You need to deal with shelter, and then you need to deal with security. So we're going to address all five of those things, and they're all contained within this container for your at-home kit. 

I start with a big old tote bin; these things are great because they're varmint proof, they're waterproof. When you fill it up, you can stick it in a closet, put it in the basement, and just leave it alone; it's ready to roll. 

All right, first things first, water. In this kind of scenario, I recommend one gallon per person per day, half of which is for drinking; the other half is for cooking and cleaning or sanitation. You need three of these for 72 hours. 

Next, the aptly named 72-hour food kit. These are great, they're ready to roll for you; you're going to want to average about 2,000 calories a day, and this is a perfect kit for 3 days or 72 hours. 

Next, I have a great little sleeping bag I like keeping in here. Yes, you're indoors, which is great; you're going to have shelter from rain, snow, wind. But if the power is out and the temperature outside is cold, the temperature inside is going to drop rapidly. This is just a really nice-to-have thing; you know, obviously, you have blankets and things like that, but I like having this in my kit so you can just grab it. 

All right, first aid. If something goes wrong, you're not going to be able to call 911 because nobody's going to show up. So you want to be able to take care of things within your own home on your own. Also, I highly recommend having 3 days of prescription medication in this if that's something that you require on a daily basis.

 Okay, we can't forget lights. HaloXT, the thing is amazing; you guys all have seen it, you know all about it. Lights are going to be out, and you're going to need to find your way around. And then, Patriot Power Cell, must-haves. These are great, put them in your bin. 

Final thing I want to discuss is security. When things get nasty outside, you're going to see the worst in people. All right, you might have firearms in the house, but if you're somebody that is uneasy or uncomfortable with that kind of situation, I highly recommend bear spray. It's a non-lethal form of self-defense. 

All right, folks, so that is your very basic 72-hour, 3-day home survival kit. Strong recommendations for additions to it: Patriot power generator is incredible, I love those things. The emergency radio so you can know what's going on, what the status is of the power, the situation outside. I mean, you could fill eight of these up, and I think starting with this one is a great start, and then you can just keep adding to it and adding to it so you will be a survivor, not a statistic. This is Cade Courtley with your 4Patriots survival minute.‚ÄĚ
