8 things we can do RIGHT NOW, that can protect our families

Hey Survivors,

It’s Chyna. Some heavy things have been brought before us, but it’s nothing we can’t handle. The reality is we’re headed for some even more uncertain times. So, I decided to jot down a few things that I think every household can benefit from, no matter what the outcome. These are things that probably were or should have been on our to-do list. However, the great majority of us are simply NOT prepared. Fighting operational, day-to-day struggles takes a lot out of us. There’s no judgment. However, we must act.

If the quarantine lasts until next week or until next year, here are a few things that should be at the top of our lists:

  • Start to get into the habit of writing things down. We need written records in case anything happens with any communication/technology line.
  • Make sure to have everyone’s telephone number you think you’d need, WRITTEN DOWN, even if they live out of state/country.
  • Along those lines, addresses should also be shared with those that you trust and feel comfortable with. Please use discernment and good judgment when sharing any details with anyone.
  • Make sure you have a pre-determined meet up point with friends/family. In case of loss of connection everyone meets at a specific location.
  • Take inventory of your home! Look at what food, medicines, hygienic products, self-defense products, and first aid you already possess. Again, don’t count on technology. Write it down.
  • DO NOT POST WHAT YOU HAVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Even if it’s paper towels and toilet paper. DO NOT POST IT.
  • Have a mini-survival kit in your car, ready to go.
  • STUDY. STUDY. STUDY. Keep reading and studying. This is all about strategy. Study war. Study survival. Study Maroons. Study Guerillas.

More Tips Specific to the Quarantine

  • Make sure to stay in groups of less than 10. The spread of the virus can reach up to 6 feet. However, don’t distance yourself from society when it comes to organizing. Keep in contact.
  • Check that your doors and windows are locked and that IF you are taking visitors, they must call (unless there’s an outage) before just showing up. We want no confusion.
  • Eat your non-perishable foods LAST. Eat your refrigerated foods, then your frozen foods, and finally your non-perishable goods.
  • There is a list of high value, non-perishable goods linked below.
  • ONCE AGAIN DO NOT POST YOUR POSSESSIONS ONLINE!!!

High Valued Items

High valued items are just items to make sure that you gather and take notice.
This includes:

Toothbrushes/tooth paste        Canned Goods of all kinds        Alcohol
Soaps                                      Warm clothes                          Bandages
Hand sanitizer                          Pain medications                      Lotions
Masks/Gloves                          Disinfectants/Sanitizers            Blankets
Towels                                     Sewing Kits                              Fever medicines
*Self defense items*                Batteries                                  Duct Tape
Plastic Bags                              Garbage Bags                           Skin Ointments
Contact cases/solution             Containers/Bookbags/Totes     WATER

That is all for right now. We are gathering more information and resources daily. While I wish that Omni-African Collective had more time to build and gather resources, we have to work with what we have and learn to use what we already have.

I’ve also put together some links to videos and websites that can provide you with more details on the survival programs we desperately need. Some of these links are to some very unlikely sources. But since Black Life goes against social media’s Community Standards, we haven’t been allowed to talk freely about survival and self defense practices.
