This survival expert explains what you need to handle the apocalypse

Jordan Gold

Are you preparing for the collapse of society?

In a new video for Business Insider, survival expert Tim Macwelch, author of “How To Survive Anything,” shows what you need to pack in a “Bug Out Bag” just in time for the apocalypse.

Also known as a “go bag”, the small, lightweight kit contains everything you’ll need for your last days on earth, including tinder and fire wood, water, survival food rations and a DIY tourniquet medical kit.

Whether the world comes to an end by way of earthquakes or aliens, Macwelch is ready. His book is available on Amazon, where a description reads:

“When the tornado strikes, when the solar flares blaze, when the zombies rise . . . what are you going to do? So many possible disasters, so little time to prepare.”
