This post combines "survival" and "partnerships."  To me, the whole survival thing is about team-work.  Note the earlier post from "ecopepper" below:
My husband and I have talked about living off grid and self suff. And looked into groups who have the same ideas. We are looking at a 5-10 year plan to get out of the city because we want to. But we do what we can for now. It would be nice to find a family to co-op with or partner with when we can get from under this house and city.

Thanks, ecopepper.  I needed that... too bad you're over 3,000 miles away.
Besides the Teamwork, your survival could really depend on:
Awareness -- paying attention to things like economic trend, political agendas, potential disasters.
Preparation -- skills & provisions.
Timing -- knowing when to bail-out of the city, or activate your defense perimeter.
And Resolve -- sheer determination.  Much of this is based on your sense of purpose and vision for the future.
I wanted to name myself "Opportunity" because that's what this whole Survival situation is here for.  We wouldn't be thinking about it if we weren't anticipating some sort of "problem."  But to me, problems are really just opportunities.
Everything we do carries some degree of risk.  Advances usually require some sort of sacrifice.  Our ancestral pioneers took risks and made lots of sacrifices.  Either we revive that spirit or we may all simply perish.  They did ok, and we have way more advantages in our favor than they had.
Good luck.
