    Shelter is one of the most important aspects when it comes to survival. Whether it's urban or in the wild there are plenty of places to determine where you will eat and sleep.In an urban environment, things are much different, but the priorities remain the same. The basic shelters keep you dry when it rains, should keep you warm in the winter, keep you cool in the summer and keep you protected from unwanted visitors when you're not up and moving around. The best shelter in an urban environment is preferably your own house. Because this is a place you call home and you know your way around which will make it easier to gather supplies and defend. If there is a chemical or fallout situation, then you need to be prepared to seal off your house. If you have multiple members in your family, assign certain members to specific tasks and get things done more efficiently.

    Put bars up on the windows and be ready to barricade doors in case of disaster. This will also help to keep out potential threats such as escape animals or prisoners. Your home is your castle, in essence, its a place to get a warm meal and a decent night's sleep in a place that is falling apart. You may want to find ways to heat your house with off-grid resources and know entry points that can make you vulnerable from outside attacks. If your own home is not an option it is best to find a house or building that you are familiar with or an empty building in a location that you are familiar with to give yourself some sort of advantage.

    trouble with trying to find shelter in the city is that is where most of the mayhem will be, due to sheer weight of numbers you will get found eventually, that's if the building isn't torched first, as we saw in the London riots some years ago, what they cant steal, they will destroy, usually that means wrecking it first then setting it alight on the way out.

    OK real life experience not me but close friend!
    He bashed a guy and the cops came looking for him!
    He hid in a false ceiling for over three months!
    Where ? above a teachers common room at his old school!
    A very large space with three access points!
    Teachers and students everywhere but not a clue he was there!

    Eventually got picked visiting a pub!
    Refused bail, pleaded guilty and got time served, just under six months!

    Lots of crazy places to hide in a city!
    A bunch of squatters were living out of an old set of toilets that had been closed down at a city rail station!
    Had been a going concern for nearly a decade until someone decided to redevelope it! survayers discovered it occupied!

    good places to hide in full view are places like, Hospitals, Train Stations and Airports, plenty of people moving through all the time, get lost in the crowd, I've even heard of people living in hospitals and airports and not being found for months.
    another place is unused industrial units.

    One place I found on my wandering was a meter room!
    Basicly a room with electric meters for a block of flats
    It had in storage there a single bed plus mattress and an outdoor table and chairs!
    A single hi set ventilated frosted glass window and a lockable door that was easy to pop if you knew how!
    Even an electric light and power outlet!
    A rainwater tap outside even! luxury!
    Seems that a lot of unit blocks have a few service rooms that are rarely visited and few tenants even know they exist!

    In the city water can be gathered from places at the lowest point ie basement the lines will hold water for a time and will drain to the lowest point
