My First Preparedness Post: 3 Cheap and Cool Perimeter Alarms

I know this seems outside the scope of Martial Arts/Self Defence and Fitness. And it is, but I think Preparedness is still Kung-Fu. I became interested in preparedness after a personal disaster. I was evicted from my home and lost my job in the same week. This was actually the culmination of a year of suicidal depression. I decided this was never going to happen again. The stress was just too much.

This post is not starting from the beginning. Fire, Shelter, Water, and Food need to be covered first. These are just some cool ideas I saw on Youtube and thought I would share. Stay tuned for more posts on this topic.

Perimeter Alarms are a good way to create a little piece of mind when you could use it the most. Even out camping sometimes just knowing nothing was rooting through your camp can help you sleep at night.
