I’m more than thrilled to be able to spill the Uncensored Survival secrets. I first learned about the survival course when I sought to learn more about natural disaster survival tips. It was hurricane season and having family in the hurricane prone region of the United States, urged me to develop and create a family emergency survival guide. It was a necessity and I was willing to dedicate my time to find answers and solutions.
I needed a plan of action that was practical and effective. Thankfully, Uncensored Survival offers a guide to getting started; otherwise I would have been completely lost and overwhelmed.
The Uncensored Survival secret is the man behind the coursework. Developed, designed and tested by the survival expert himself, Oli Fischer. Being a family man himself, I can relate to his passion and dedication to finding a survival plan based on his family’s needs.
The coursework is thorough and detailed yet comprehendible and packed with functional solutions for survival. In addition to natural disaster survival and preparedness, Uncensored Survival offers guides for so much more. How to deal with thieves, what to keep in your emergency stockpile, mental survival tips, and more. We are talking about the possibility of saving your life, let alone the lives of your family members. I can’t sit back and leave my fate or the fate of my family up to chance or pure luck. Disaster could strike at any moment, and I want to make sure that I have done everything in my power to be prepared.
My Uncensored Survival review is pretty basic. If you’re looking for an affordable yet logical step-by-step guide to emergency survival, this is for you. $47 entitled me to a whole world of survival tips, including a hard copy of Uncensored Survival. The online portal was user-friendly and the support staff was knowledgeable, able to answer all of my questions. I was really happy to see an online forum for members, where sharing advice and tips is easy to do.
Since my purchase, I have implemented some of the Uncensored Survival basics and overall I feel more secure in my survival plan for my family. Volume 2 of the book is so important. It covers the extreme survival secrets, and even shows you how to build a real “bug out” bag. Initially I had my bag all wrong, which could have caused some major problems if I would have been caught in a do or die situation. Within just two chapters of Uncensored Survival, my investment had been paid off. The tools and skills I learned were priceless and I’m already teaching them to my friends and family.
Uncensored Survival has given me peace of mind. Something I haven’t been able to find for years. I rest assured in the fact that a survival expert has educated me with his years of experience. Of course my emergency survival plan will always be improved upon, but the fundamentals are there and now I seek to develop it and pass it along to my family.
Most Americans laugh off the threat of power outages, believing the power will come back on in a few minutes… but as many of us have experienced first-hand, sometimes these blackouts can last hours or even days.
Have you ever had to endure a blackout that lasted waaaay longer than you expected? I have. And here’s the thing, I wasn’t prepared. It was a real mess.
And sure, flashlights are important in a blackout, but there are a lot of other items that are equally, if not more important. That’s why I’m not wasting a spot on my top 5 for flashlights or hand-crank radios. You already know these items are important and you hopefully have these on hand for any number of other emergency scenarios.
These are items that may not immediately come to mind when you think “blackout.” Here are my top 5 items to have in a longterm blackout. Let me know if you’re surprised about which items did or didn’t make the list:
1. Emergency Blankets – Emergency blankets are at the top of the list for two reasons 1) extreme hot or cold temperatures can be dangerous 2) a high percentage of blackouts occur as a result of inclement weather, especially winter storms. Even though you may have a gas furnace, your thermostat may require electricity. If that’s the case, then temperatures in your home may fall quickly.
2. Carbon Monoxide Detectors – Of all the unforeseen threats of a blackout, CO is one of the most dangerous. Many people will immediately get creative and fire up their fireplaces, camp stoves, and space heaters at the first hint of a power outage, which increases the likelihood of dangerous carbon monoxide levels inside the home exponentially.
A good battery powered carbon monoxide detector can save your life in blackout scenario. If it goes off, open the windows and doors and get out immediately.
3. Water - Don’t wait until an emergency to find out that your community’s water service depends entirely on electricity… and that you consequently have no water to drink or clean with. Water is a must in every survival scenario. I recommend a 30 day supply of drinking water, plus water for hygiene.
In a blackout scenario, 30 days is a stretch. Just shoot for 1 gallon per person, per day. That will cover drinking water, hand washing, and dish washing in a pinch.
4. Cash/Hard Copies - We live in an increasingly cashless society, where many of us go days with absolutely no actual cash in our wallets — just a bunch of cards. If power is down in your area, cash will still spend.
In fact, it’s a good idea to take a moment and think about all of the important day-to-day information that you have stored online (this may include addresses, passwords, account numbers, medical information, etc.).
If you lose your internet connection, you won’t be able to retrieve any of this critical information for a long time. You won’t be able to look up addresses, phone numbers, or pull up a Google Map. So it’s critical that you have this info stored someplace besides the “cloud.”
5. Marine Grade Cooler -Most survivalists get caught up in the gadget/power side of a blackout that they miss the critical food safety issues. Even in a fairly short power outage, the food in your refrigerator can reach unsafe levels and spoil. With a bag of ice and the next item on this list, you can make sure your food stays safe.
Use ice and bags of frozen vegetables to keep perishable foods cool in a high-quality cooler. It doesn’t have to be a YETI, but many of the cheap coolers out there are just junk. They barely keep ice frozen for 12 hours in moderate weather.
If anyone calls you paranoid for keeping your doors locked at all hours of the day, send them a link to the video below. It’s definitely an eye-opening look at how today’s criminals select their targets.
Oftentimes in the context of self-defense, we talk about taking steps to make sure you’re not the “easy target,” in a given situation. It’s the concept of appearing slightly more alert, capable, and intimidating than those around you, because muggers are mostly cowards. They simply want to select the target with the lowest probability of resisting or fighting back.
The same concept works for your HOME and your CAR.
You don’t need to draw extra attention to your home with signage or security camera, just keep the lights on and your doors locked.
You don’t need a fancy aftermarket security system in your car. Just store any valuables out of sight and lock your doors. Why?
Because it severely decreases your chances of getting burglarized. Statistically speaking, the simple precaution of locking your doors while you’re taking a shower, working in the garage, or gardening in the backyard, means your home will be passed over by burglars…
Here’s why: Today, the standard operating procedure for burglars is to literally walk by and test all doors to see if they’re locked. If a door is unlocked, it’s an open invitation to slip inside and grab whatever valuables they can find. Most burglars are opportunists.
The vast majority of burglaries take only a few minutes, if even that long. They’re not the elaborate heists that you’ve seen in the movies. These are crimes of opportunity, and you’ve created the opportunity by leaving the door unlocked.
According to police officer Greg Ellifritz, this trend is growing like crazy:
I’ve kept track of reports of the thefts from cars in the city where I work (an upper-class suburb with around 35,000 residents) for the last 30 days. While I earlier referred to them as “car break-ins” that is truly a mischaracterization. Here’s how the numbers work out:
Number of vehicles entered- 24
Unlocked vehicles- 20
Locked vehicles- 3
Unknown or unreported status- 1
More than 83% of the vehicles with items stolen were unlocked! In only three cases did thieves actually break a window to steal something. In each of those cases, the item(s) stolen were expensive and clearly within view from the outside of the vehicle. You can safely assume that if there is nothing visible to steal in your car, thieves won’t break windows just to check. On the other hand, if you leave your doors unlocked, thieves will open the door and see what they can find. As the title of the article says: Lock your damn doors! If you don’t want your crap stolen, keep your doors locked and valuables out of sight.
That’s about the best explanation you can get, straight from a veteran officer who sees this on a daily basis. Home burglaries work almost exactly the same way:
We had at least four burglaries last month where thieves entered through an unlocked door. The standard M.O. for these burglars is to find a house that appears unoccupied. They’ll knock on the door and if no one answers, they will walk around the house looking for an unlocked entrance. If they find a door unlocked, they go inside.
The thieves go straight to the master bedroom and steal jewelry and all the small electronics they can gather on the way. They are in and out of the house in only a few minutes.
