Hurricane season is here and if there was an earthquake season, it would probably be here as well – time to put some detailed focus into building and improving my hurricane and earthquake survival kit. Where I live, we don’t have any earthquakes but we do have regular hurricanes. I think the personal impact is quite similar such that any well thought out and built disaster survival kit will suffice. Building and property damage is one of the greatest impacts of an earthquake or hurricane. Because of that, I think it is very important to be able to clear damaged property and get yourself out of a jam – good tools are essential for building a earthquake or hurricane survival kit. I added a very nice and well reviewed hatchet to help clear debris or get me out of a jam if I’m trapped in a building. It’s possible that I already have a hatchet in my survival kit – I’m not sure. I’ll double check that the next time I inventory my survival kit supplies against my disaster survival kit list. Knowing it’s there gives me confidence in my hurricane and earthquake survival kit as we head into hurricane season.
Hatchet in an Earthquake Survival Kit
The picture (left) is of the hatchet in my hurricane and earthquake survival kit, and it is one of the best hatchets I have ever used. The reiews on this hatchet were excellent and I see why; I also purchased one for my other projects around my house and on our ranch. The weight is magnificent and I do believe the company claim of cutting 3 times as deep. My wife believes that I already had a hatchet in my earthquake and hurricane survival kit, (hence the need for quarterly inventory and survival kit list checks) but I’m still very pleased with this addition to my hurricane and earthquake survival kit.
