No matter where you live, planning and prepping are crucial to ensure your survival when SHTF. If you’re an urban prepper, having these items on hand can make a big difference when disaster strikes. (h/t to AskAPrepper.com)

First aid kitx`
When SHTF, hospitals or emergency services may be inaccessible or overwhelmed with patients. Have a first aid kit ready so you can quickly treat minor injuries and prevent major trauma.

Prepare a first aid kit with supplies that will help you deal with common injuries, like an assortment of bandages and burn ointments.

Emergency face masks
Urban areas are often exposed to manufacturing industries that deal with toxic chemicals. These installations are vented to prevent toxic fumes from polluting the environment, but when disaster strikes these industries may leak the toxic fumes.

Emergency face masks can protect you from these pollutants.

Water purification system
According to the American Red Cross, you need at least three gallons of drinking water per person during an average crisis.

It can be hard to find clean drinking water when the grid goes down. Preparing a water purification system before SHTF means you can have drinking water at home or in your bug-out location.

Consider options such as water filter straw, water purification tablets, and activated charcoal.

When the power goes out, you need a lighter for candles, boiling water, or food prep. Keep several lighters and fire-starters at home and in your bag, just in case you lose access to most of your gear.
