What the hell?
Since when does Birmingham experience disasters warranting this? Granted we enjoy a good riot in the West Mids, but a SURVIVAL KIT?
What do the other UK guys reckon?

It doesn't do any harm to play it safe.
Completely agree Timewarp.
Being prepared in case a disaster happens is good practice and I already have most of the items on the list in the link.

Nice to have a Brit on the board so to speak
Thanks mate, even though I'm the first Brit I'm still heavily out numbered by our friends across the pond!

I'm storing what I can and planting veg in what little garden I have. Also joining the Landshare scheme so we can grow more locally. Lots of big gardens around here that are not used. I think taking back control of our food supply is vital whatever does or doesent happen.Peace.
Yes, I believe you are right.
Downscaling everything to a community or 'tribal' level will be the answer for the years to come, not only regarding food, but also energy and cultural / social.
