A blackout is not completely impossible in Germany.

A wilderness trainer wants to rehearse the emergency.

And relies on honey – for two reasons.

Munich – The fear of a blackout in Germany has been fed more and more in recent months.

Due to the energy crisis, it suddenly no longer seems entirely improbable that there will be a large-scale power outage for hours or even days.

Most recently, an expert had assessed the risk of an actual blackout as rather low.

He rather expects short-term power cuts, which would probably be announced in advance.

However, a general risk remains.

Because if the demand for electricity exceeds the supply, the power grid can collapse.

A scenario that wilderness expert Marco Plass wants to prepare for with his family as a precaution.

Should an emergency occur, the wilderness trainer and studied organizational psychologist expects a chaotic situation in the cities.

He revealed that to the

Focus

.

He therefore advises everyone to imitate the situation so as not to panic later.

According to Plass, the worst thing you could do would be to downplay the issue.

It is wrong to later rely on supposed knowledge that one has picked up somewhere.

"You have to try things like that!" he advised.

Plass would therefore like to imitate the blackout with his family for a day and a night, so that his children in particular can experience the experience without fear.

In rural areas, many people are already partially self-sufficient and, for example, keep chickens or grow vegetables.

The situation is different in the cities: "I don't think many city dwellers realize what it would mean for them if the supermarket suddenly closed, the water went out, the toilet and the ATMs stopped working."

Having canned goods and packet soups in the house is not necessarily enough if the electric stove suddenly stops working.

It is true that something edible can be prepared quickly with it.

“But don't underestimate the soul.

I know from my own experience how much you look forward to a good meal in a crisis situation," said the wilderness trainer.

Wilderness expert recommends a honey supply in the house for blackout - that helps twice

Plass recommends a gas cooker so that you can still prepare warm food.

Alternatively, you could set up a fireplace, for example.

An overview shows which food and items are still useful in the event of a blackout.

In general, he recommends cooking outside on a fireproof surface if possible.

In order to save gas, you can boil the water for pasta, for example, only briefly and then let them swell in it.

“A great option is couscous or polenta.

Dishes that require minimal cooking time and are very filling.”

In addition to numerous durable foods such as pesto or margarine, the survival expert emphasizes honey in particular.

This has several positive effects.

For one thing, it gives you a lot of energy.

"You can also use it to treat wounds, as it has an antiseptic effect." With regard to water, according to the trainer, there are already pump filters for about 40 euros that can produce drinking water quality.

And how about the heat?

Here the expert has some simple tips to start with.

In addition to warm clothes and sleeping bags, the motto is: the more, the better.

When many people are in a room in a crisis situation like a blackout, it gets warmer.
