Survival is what you do in response to a threat; it’s the actions you take *after* the fact. You are forced to make decisions and take action, regardless of whether you know what to do or not. Once an event happens, every action you make will affect your outcome and whether you make it through safe or alive.
In contrast, Preparedness is what you do *before* an event; it’s the proactive steps you take in order to make your survival easier to achieve. If you have prepared enough, your chances of surviving increase. Learn what to do before you need to do it. Learn how to store your food properly, know which methods really make water safe to drink, know which gear to buy and which wastes your money.
“Surviving is the Art of Being Prepared.”
