About 38 Percent Chance Major Problems Will Occur While You Are At Work byfor Modern Survival Blog
You probably spend about 38 percent of your life at work, along with the typical commute. Assuming that you’re not retired.
You spend 29 percent of your time sleeping, if you sleep 7 hours a night.
33 percent of your time you’re doing other things, at home, etc..
So, if a SHTF event were to occur, there might be a ~38% chance that you will be at work.
For preparedness sake, this is a significant statistic. Here’s what I mean…
Preparedness For If The Balloon Goes Up While At Work
Don’t ignore preparedness while at your work place. You might be at work if and when “it” happens.
One of the most effective ways that you can prep for this is by having adequate kit/supplies in your vehicle (assuming that you drive to work). Your vehicle will be able to hold a significant or at least adequate amount of supplies and gear of your choosing.
If you don’t commute by way of your own vehicle, it will be even more important to supply yourself at the workplace and your every-day-carry.
As is the case for most tangible preparedness choices, you’re looking at the basics first. Like water and food. You’re at work. So there’s technically shelter. Maybe the power is out. Perhaps a flashlight. It’s part of my EDC on my keychain (I use this one).
However your mission will be to get home (typically). So that means a bag (to carry your supplies which will help you get there if you have to hoof it). If your vehicle is operational and the roads are passable, great. You will probably have little problem, at least if you ‘get out of dodge’ quickly enough.
However, I haven’t defined the SHTF event. And I’m not going to. But I do hope that you will at least think about it. The “what if”. Define it yourself for different circumstances. Let that guide you as to what you might find tangibly helpful.
