No one knows the future. You can find pretty accurate weather predictions, but that’s about it as far as it goes in knowing what’s going to happen in a few days or even a few hours. All you can do is prepare to the best of your abilities for the moment when you need to be self-sufficient. That means having all the survival equipment in Toronto you might need someday.
At Al Flaherty’s, we have a lot of outdoor and survival knowledge, and we’re talking about real-world scenarios that could happen at any time. We’re not talking about the zombie apocalypse, which is so popular in movies, TV, and video games.
Suppose a winter storm strikes, and your power is out for several days. You may not even be able to leave your house to get to an emergency shelter. If you’re prepared with sleeping bags, a camp stove, battery-powered lights, and a heater, you can at least weather the storm with some measure of comfort rather than suffer.
Maybe your vehicle slides off the road some dark and frigid winter night, and you’re stranded in the car for hours. Having survival equipment in Toronto can make the difference between life and death.
And what about when you’re out in the bush and get lost or injured? A first-aid kit, compass, emergency blanket, firestarter, whistle, knife, candles, and emergency stove will help if that ever happens. Remember the Scouts motto: Be Prepared.
