Risk and what to do with it.
There are two things we can do about risk. Try to remove the risk, like wearing gloves to make sure you don't burn your hands. Or try to reduce it if it does happen, like making sure you have burn cream and bandages for when you burn your hands anyway because you didn't think the lid would still be hot even though it was leaning against the firepit. In many cases the risks we face are similar, but the degree of risk changes with many factors.
5 Risk factors to consider.
What are the most common natural disasters where you live?
How far away do you live from town?
How many people are in your family?
Are there any health factors in your family?
Do you have animals and pets?
Learning how to accurately assess risk takes a lot of practice.
Risk is different for everyone. What may be very risky for you may be less risky for someone else. That is why it is important for you to know how to remove or lessen the risk for you and your family with a plan. Knowing the basics of survival and what we need to survive is how we determine the severity of any situation.
In Step 2 we will go over the Survival Fundamentals and how to determine the basic survival needs of you and your family.
