When I was thinking about this, I realized that we are better able to survive because of the life we lead. So, to me survival is more about the choices you make on a day to day basis. It's not a one time event where you run to the store and buy some stuff. It's about acquiring the materials and skills over time.

In your situation, you on land by the sounds of it. So lets make this practical. You have to up and leave your land because the Nuclear facility up wind has exploded and Radiation is coming your way. You may not be able to return for months.
Bug out bag needed.
Nuke attack on 6-7 cities, cutting power, banks, internet down-you can’t draw money, water supply contaminated in many areas, radiation coming your way.
Bug out bad needed!
To me I think this is more in line with what they referring to.
