5 Skills Invaluable in a Long-Term Disaster

5 Skills that Will Become Invaluable in a Long-Term Disaster

5 Skills Invaluable in a Long-Term DisasterAccording to the American Prepper Network, the five main skills needed for a long-term disaster are abilities related to power, water, shelter, food, and basic survival skills.

Could You Set Up a Post-Disaster Medical LabAfter a disaster, we know to expect no grocery stores, no pharmacies, no running water, no electricity, and so on.
