LIFESAVING: How To Correctly Seal Your Gas Mask

A lot of Preppers have gas masks for themselves and their families. However, unless you are prior military, I doubt you know how to put it on correctly. Meaning you need to “Clear” your mask once you put it on. Prior to breathing. Think about it. A potentially harmful Radioactive, Nuclear, or Biological material has been released. You put on your mask and start breathing. Wasn’t your mask full of these contaminants before you put it on? Here is how to do it properly…
1) Hold your breath and close your eyes.
2) Put your mask on.
3) Put your hands over the exhalation vent to seal it.
4) Blow out hard. You will feel the air escape around the edges of the mask.
5) When you are almost done with your exhale, remove your hand to clear the filter and keep exhaling.
6) Before you take a breath, put your hands back over the vent to prevent air from coming in the filter.
7) Suck in, you should feel it tighten around your face, and no air coming in.
Your mask is now correctly sealed and you can open your eyes. Unless you follow and practice these steps, don’t waste your time getting one. It will do you and your family no good.

Tarps For Prepping

From Wikipedia
One item that you definitely need in your prepping supplies is at least 1 good Tarp. The more the merrier. Tarps can be used for so many things I cannot possibly list them all. Here are a few that come to mind.
1) A Tent.
2) Bottom of your tent for extra protection.
3) A Hammock.
4) Firewood cover to keep it dry.
5) Making a solar still to make drinking water.
6) Patching holes in your damaged shelter.
7) Wrapping a body before burial.
8) On…and…on…and…on
One suggestion. Get the thicker tarp. Your life may depend on it and you don’t want it too thin and easily ripped.
