If the power grid in your city went offline, what would you do? Probably not reach for the fridge – at least not for too long.

In an urban situation, there are so many things to take account of and deal with when your life is on the line.

Do you know what to prioritize?

Thankfully, it really isn’t as overwhelming as it seems. By identifying the essentials you’ll be able to tackle the the vast majority of the unknown.

In this article, we cover the basic requirements you need so (hopefully) you won’t have to worry about what to do when the SHTF.

What To Expect

In an urban environment, there will be many first responders and emergency personnel to lend a hand. You won’t have to do it alone, and many strangers may be by your side to form a temporary survival group.

Cell towers will be overloaded and useless for calls, texting, and internet. The streets will be chaos, don’t risk them unless you have no choice.

If you’re at home and out of danger, barricade the entrance and bunker down. Keep the lights off and stay away from windows.

If you must escape

These are general guidelines and must be taken with a grain of salt. There are a million variables and every situation has unique aspects that will direct your actual decisions. If the city is full of riots or a dirty bomb has went off, your situation will be different than if a hurricane has hit.

Generally speaking however this is what you can expect in a large scale emergency in an urban environment, such as the one that occurred on 9/11.

In either case, your goal is to a. get to emergency responders that can safely take care of your injuries or get you out of harms way, or b. get the hell out of dodge as quickly and as far as possible. You should give it all you have to get to safety before night falls.

1. In the first hour you (or your group) will be on your own. Do not expect any help, first responders are still deploying and things will be too hectic to depend on getting help. This is why you read these articles. This is your D-Day, it’s time to practice what you know.
