The subject of emergency survival is a very broad topic, so for this article I'm going to confine the topic to just one small area: Sheltering in place during an emergency in
cold weather. Many survival books and manuals discuss wilderness survival in detail, but completely skip sheltering in place as an option to use for most of us. Sheltering in place
or SIP as emergency management planners refer to it, simply means staying put in available and reasonable shelter during emergency type conditions such as major power outages,
blizzards, wind, or ice storms during cold weather. A reasonable shelter may be anything that provides you some protection from external elements resulting from conditions such as
those. It makes more sense and is the wiser choice sometimes, sheltering in place rather than risk venturing out and be stuck out in a snow bank by the side of a highway, hurt in
an accident, or totally out in the open without any shelter at all.
Like most emergencies, things will go much easier if a plan is prepared before an emergency takes place. This is simple to do and can even be free, or at least relatively
inexpensive. Obviously, installing an emergency generator to provide back-up power or installing a wood stove in your apartment may or may not be a reasonable part of your
pre-emergency plan. Focus on simple preparations because simple preparations are better than no preparation at all.
