3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food.
These figures may be off depending on the health of any given individual depending on their health.
Just get them as soon as possible.
3 foundations food, shelter, protection, these are the 3 things you will need to survive.
Water is figured into the food equation above.
You will need food and water to be alive, you will need a place to shelter yourself as well as your food, you will also need something to insure that
said items stay yours.
My first advice is read anything and everything you can on survival, whether civillian accounts or military strategy.
When you can afford to do this start to put plans in motion.
I would say first is a bugout or bug in location, depending on what you prefer and or what the situation dictates.
Always have a fallback plan, redundancy,redundancy,redundancy.
Home and a bugout location.
Second you can work on the food, learn to preserve and or stock up on non or slowly perisheable foods.
Water is the easiest to get as all you need is a container, there is no reason to not have water.
Last would be weaponry, if you have something that you need to survive, someone may also need said items too.
Insure that these items stay with you and yours.
There is sooo much more but you will learn as you go.
Read everything you can, webpages and videos are free and abundant.
