In an emergency situation, you need to have survival shelters that will keep you safe from whatever the weather throws your way.
It could be anything from the scorching sun beating down on you or a torrential rain, you need to be protected, and knowing about different ways to construct survival shelters may help you to survive.
The survival shelters you make will depend on what resources are available to you. If you can plan ahead, this is always the best possible way to make sure you and your family will have the right shelter that you need.
Most survivalists know how to make long term survival shelters, however when you’re on the go or you have to get set up fast, you have to be provided for in the short term. In a pinch, you can use a large poncho as a shelter.
However this is only a short term solution. You can also use a large garbage bag like you would a poncho. You should always consider traveling with some kind of shelter with you or have the tools to make one quickly.
A waterproof tarp will also work for as a short term shelter and these are strong enough to withstand some pretty harsh weather and they can do a reasonably good job of keeping you warm. However, they’re not good as a long term shelter.
Some preppers and survivalists use enclosed top portable hammocks. These are lightweight and can be tied to trees to keep the hammocks off the ground.
You can find these online and they have mesh walls that act as a pest barrier. These shelters are temporary and are suited mainly for adults or teenagers but are not meant for smaller children.
If you want to make sure that your family is well taken care of, you’re going to want to set aside some tents. You can select tube tents as they set up fast and get people out of the bad weather.
You can also buy a two man or a family tent. Always look for ones with a quick and easy set up. Scout tents are a good choice as are teepee tents. If you know you might be in the tent for a few weeks, you can look for dome or lodge tents.
With a little planning, and knowledge of the various survival shelters you have at your disposal you’ll be able to protect yourself and family while others are not so fortunate.
A survival blanket can also be constructed into a temporary lean to if you have cord with you. If you don’t have any cording, you can search the area to see if it has some plant vines you could use as cording to tie the survival blanket to the trees.
You can construct a shelter out of the materials that nature provides. Depending on how much time you have, this can be either short or long term. You can build a shelter from tree limbs and leaves. By packing the shelter with leaves, it will keep you warm for a short period of time.
