It is always a good idea to have a disaster preparedness kit stored away somewhere in the event of emergency. Many organizations suggest having at minimum three days of food, water and supplies ready to go as it can often take at least that long, if not longer, for local governments to enact emergency response strategies.
Beyond environmental catastrophe, buying binges, as we recently saw throughout COVID-19, have frequently led to critical supplies being completely cleared out. These shortages are also magnified by mounting supply chain restraints even when there is no crisis to contend with.
The categorical ineptness and proclivity for overreach of governments around the world, with the Trudeau Liberal’s often leading that, are producing more and more people planning to be well supplied in the event that authorities go full-blown authoritarian and they have to head out into the woods for a few weeks, months or even years.
Whether you are building up a 72-hour emergency kit or planning a several month survival loadout, knowing what to get can be a daunting task. Fortunately, the folks at Briden Solutions in Calgary have all the knowledge, supplies and equipment you could need to go from zero to fully-equipped in one visit, no matter your needs.

In addition to getting prepared in the event of a worst-case scenario, you can also take preventative steps to ensure the government doesn’t abuse its power without consequence by supporting independent media that is willing to ask the tough questions and hold them accountable.
