FREE Survival Apps


I don’t know about you, but when or IF we ever find ourselves in a disaster, I want to make sure that I am in contact with my family.  In my research, I found apps that I think could be used as survival apps during a disaster. As I find more, I will add them to this list so check back her for updates. I have not use a lot of these apps, yet, but it will be interesting to know how they work and if they give accurate information. Also, search for local apps in your area, they may be helpful. Use the apps to practice now, before a disaster happens so you will know how to use them during a disaster.

      Yes, I will keep chugging along. I hope that others start preparing before it is too late. We are in troubled times and it is not going to get better. We will be abandoned by our leaders and it will be every man, woman and kid to fend for themselves. Take a look at what’s going on in Venezuela. We are next. Thank you for your support.
