Every prepper & survivalist knows the rule of 3’s 3 minutes without air - 3 hours without shelter 3 days without water - 3 weeks without food The Survival rule of threes; It is very important that we all think in this order because someday it could save your life or the life of a loved one. The rule of three are steps that I mentally go over when accessing a situation. In that order, I ask myself air, shelter, water, food. Each of those areas encompasses different skills with each different scenario. Roof collapsing due to snow storm Earthquake levels your home You are forced to flee you home All these are things that will make your bug-in or bug-out locations unusable. Have you prepared for that? And have you taught your family those rules? One person would have a hard time doing everything. Managing people takes time and time may not be something you can spare during a situation. The process used to seal the room is considered a temporary protective measure to create a barrier between you and potentially contaminated air outside. It is a type of sheltering in place that requires preplanning. Do you have a plan to seal a room? Have you looked at your home and said this is the room we will shelter in? I know this is an area I am lacking. They say things happen in threes- and @Airtime stated another three yesterday- fight, flight or freeze. Another reason for the three minutes without air IMO is to encourage people to learn first aid. Learning the basics of first aid is easy and IMO many in today's society put it off because 911 is always available. I feel that prepping/survival is not just for post-SHTF fan but how to handle situations in everyday life. On average a person can only survive for 3 minutes without air. In any survival situation air is your first priority. Many people may think of survival situations as plane crashes or being lost in the woods. The reality is that many people do not realize that swimming pools cause a potentially deadly survival situation for their children. For TOTM December, we can discuss that above but I also have a few other “Threes” activities that I will be posting.
